Oh, and I'm painting several rooms in our home, so it might be a few hours before I reply. I also have a business and job, so I sometimes am offline almost all day. But I promise I will eventually reply.

I do prefer "Empty Rooms."

No joke, I thought of Gary Moore while I was painting, maybe 2 hours ago.
Were you painting Shapes of Things?
No, much better. It was a hallway.

I was thinking of Gary Wright. Had the name wrong.
Not Richard Wright?

Anyway I prefer a RATT TALE.

That's a great one!!!!

Aye!

Hey Earl what do you think the new name for the Washington Redskins will be?

Pat!  I really like the Washington Red Tails!
Redskins fans don't like that because it makes them think of porn films featuring spanking.

They prefer Red Wolves!
We actually prefer Redskins, but we don't get to anymore.

Why not let the guy tell his story, the post has been taken over with the inane babbel of one or two people who should know better, that or lock it!

The original poster seems like a good dude who’s played right along with all the jokes and pokes. I’m sure he knows he can tell the full story anytime he likes. I haven’t seen any posts that have told him to shut up or anything like that. The only thing stopping him is a constantly weak phone battery! :P

“She’s gonna blow”?! No wonder I just saw Earl running in that direction with his pants down to his ankles!

Okay I went back through this thread and actually counted how many times he posted in here: 33. Maybe a quarter of those were to his original thought. Everything else has been friendly banter and such. After nearly 3 dozen posts, he could’ve told the whole story IF he wanted to.

The banter is welcome! I will gladly answer questions about it if anyone is interested. He had time to blow while a storm passed, but he still ended up wearing rain gear because he could not wait any longer to make it to the show near Detroit, and he had to take the Interstate because time was running short.

There are a couple details I can share that, to this day, put a knot in my stomach when I realize the chance I blew.

If you someone is interested, please ask me about "his area" of the parking lot. But I will share this stuff only if I know people want to hear.

I now will be offline for at least 1-2 hours.

Thank you, that's kind of you to say. Johnny is right, though. I like the banter and don't want to blab too much. I tend to go overbaord with detail; it's amazing how many details come back to mind all these years later. For example, I am nearly certain he was wearing the same jacket as on the GUP portrait. It came up when he was trying to bring me to the realization he was Neil. But he finally gave up and went with it. He even asked the gas station attendant about my demeanor or attitude, and I remember her saying, "No, he's from a good family." A couple days later, she asked why I didn't believe him. But again, I'm getting into detail.

This is what strikes me as very odd. Neil was notorious for shunning the trappings of fame. Hell, he even wrote a song about it, and yet here he is trying so very hard to be recognized. That just doesn't pass the sniff test with me. Any chance the dude wasn't Neil but was trying to fool you into thinking he was? You yourself said you didn't recognize him.
