Hi, Lynn. I'm a Spartan ('82) and bought my first ukulele at Elderly in '81 ($19 Hohner). I still remember drooling over an early Gibson they had. For $80 as I recall. Are the Abbott Brothers named for Abbott Road?

I have some normal size brown and white spectators. And a swell pair of black and white patent leather ones that are about 2 feet long. Okay, they're clown shoes, but I wore them at three weddings, including my sister's and my own.

Have a Topopo Salad at El Azteco, and think of me.

Nothing more beautiful than the MSU campus in Spring. Except the Fall.

Good eyes, that is indeed us (The Fabulous Heftones). OK, so I don't play guitar these days, but Elderly doesn't sell the instrument I play (it was hand-built by Brian's father). I didn't complain at all when I got to hold that beautiful guitar, though!

Brian's shoes were a gift from our dear friend, Dick. Dick is in our other band, the Abbott Brothers. The shoes once belonged to Dick's father. Brian first wore the shoes at our wedding!
