Tatonka: Love ya dude!!

Well, you say it’s your birthday…
Well, happy birthday to you… yah, I can really mean that!
I have a photo of you & me & Yiggy at the 2013 M & G.
I framed it and it hung on my living room wall; it’s been there ever since…
Thanks for the music, Brother… Even during the “slow” times of the Burning (E-playa) year. There are some of us that know that it’s the musician’s that are the keepers of the vibe for the community… Thanks., you get that!!
And so much more, and so much more... You’re a Burner… Happy Birthday, you magnificent so & so.
I don’t post very often. And now you know why.
But still:
Love and kisses: GadMatt.

Oh Shit. I have Drunk Posted Again. Sorry one and all. But, but , but... I really like this guy. I'm just so damn glad he is in our world.

Normally I don't turn the heater/furnace on until Thanksgiving, or at least Veterans Day. But a few inches of snow on the surrounding mountains and rain/wet snow mix here in the valleys this past Thursday made me give in, the last day of summer. 29 this morning in Carson City. Hope it's not a precursor to this coming winter

Don't give me any of that, 'Why don't you have a coffee first', shit. It's the weekend and I'm drunk on my one glass of wine. I'll just have another of that pinot grisio please. Here. I'll get it myself. It's way too clean in here. * Pulls out a baggie of playa and tosses it in the air.* Much better. I'm gonna bring some of this to the S. F. Decom. I hope the participants are looking for a dusty party.

Been a while since I last dropped on here but had a very busy summer. Hi and Happy Birthday to all I have missed. Will be trying to stay abreast of the goings on here in The Bar.

Ah! Mention of Bourbon. A kind soul gifted me a bottle of Jefferson's Reserve on Playa.
I didn't earn this by myself, so I leave it here on the bar. :D

((((((GadMatt)))))))) sorry I missed you!

((((((Yggy))))) love is what make life bearable.

(((((((((Elorrum))))))))))) thanks for hanging with me pre- and post- in Reno; that was awesome. 8)

I tell you what: This last Burn was brutal, in every way, and it hit me really hard. I hardly recognize the person I used to be. No shit. I was not expecting a really life-changing experience this year, but I got one anyway. :shock: And it is still unfolding. Not sure how I feel about it but, I know there is no going back.

I usually come back from the Burn feeling that life is too short, so I seek out my loved ones and do happy things. But this year the brevity of life has fired in me a zero tolerance for bullshit. I do not want to mince my words with people who waste my time, and, guess what: my standards are a lot higher than they used to be.

Maybe, after seven Burns, I am developing Burner Snark. :lol:

Let me pour you all a drink before I get permabanned. :shock: :lol: :lol: :lol:

And don't get me started on Decoms. Out here in the faraway lands, you can wander a so-called "decom" for hours without meeting one single person who has ever been to BRC. All poseurs. I don't know why they do it. Makes me mad.

Maybe 2017 is my Angry-Ever-After Burn. :lol:

All I have to say MDF, is our time that evening early on in the week, over a glass or three of champagne, sitting at VC and Grai's camp, was the most rewarding and positive feelings I've had in years. Hopefully that's partly what you're referring to.
