Hello friends of the Ape. If you haven't already noticed - the posts are getting farther between these last 2 weeks. DadyRich has been dealing with some health issues that have taken up much of the free time I used to devote to this blog. I am not quitting, not by a long shot. But because of these concerns I have considerably slowed my output down - much to my regret. This is just to let everyone know that this blog is not slowly fading away but just slowing down for the forseeable future - I have a few more test/procedures to go through this month that I am not looking forward to and hopefully I can get back down to doing my thing here. I know, all of you are saying "who cares? post more free music!" but it's going to be a few weeks before I am back in the swing of this possibly. I wil still check comments and thanks the kind folks who always leave a good word. Also, when I do check the comments (they're sent to an e-mail account) and you type "damn, I missed this one - could you repost?" I have no idea to which record you are referring. And I have way too many posts up now (one of the fastest blogs on the internet, as far as posts and quantity go - certainly for a one-man operation) to troll through old posts to find your comment. Please keep that in mind, friends. So, thanks for coming by and I will not be killing any links so keep sharing.

I echo bobby's comment. Hope you will be fine - all else in secondary. Take care and all the best to you.

mikeh said...

Do what you need to do to take care of yourself. As eric said, all else is secondary. Take care; hope all goes well, DaddyRich.

That's what this is all about, besides the music that is. We all have common interests and we should be caring about one another.

Hang in there Daddy, I wish you well and am looking forward to seeing your rosey apple cheeks back here when you're all better.

As others have said, we'll still be out here waiting, you take care of what's most important, get well. Thanks for sharing and look forward to it when you're feeling better.

There is no business like showbusiness but there are times you'll know that there are way more important things in life than music...like your health...and unlike music it isn't easy to get a new copy of your body!

Take care!

The music is secondary, as so many have pointed out. Your good spirit is what matters here.

Best of luck now and always.

Daddy, thanks so much for the blog. It's amazing stuff you're throwing up there.

I sincerely hope your health improves so that you can be buried ears deep in bootlegs, as I imagine is your wont.
