Lunch with Kingman

After Terri's Mom passed a few weeks back, we felt we needed to get away for a while. While up in Highlands, NC, got in touch with Kingman. He re-arranged his schedule and we met for lunch in Clemson at a great BBQ place he recommended. Some of the best Baby Backs I have ever tasted. Even slipped in an audition of some Dunlavy 4's while there.

Great company and great food. Thanks Kingman! It was 47 degrees when we left the mountains yesterday.

Agreed. My family offers their condolences as well.

The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to a good analogue reproduction.

Re: Lunch with Kingman

Thanks guys for the condolences. I will pass them on to Terri. The last several months were very sad, to say the least, not to mention all consuming. Seems many of us are approaching the age where we are starting to lose our parents, if we haven't already.

We did have a very memorable Celebration of Life ceremony. Later this month, heading to Nashville (Springfield actually) to bury her ashes next to Terri's Dad, who pre-deceased her by a number of years. We decided it was best to do on their wedding anny.
