Been missing my fire department first responder pager for three weeks. Looked high, low, outside, inside, chair cushions, sock drawer, under tractor seat, you name it. I have a handheld radio that doubles as a pager if necessary, but it got to the point where I was practicing my “umm…errr…” speech to the chief. Yesterday I went to Long Beds rehearsal. When I opened my gig bag (actually it’s a gig toolbox), there, right on top, next to the spare cables, extra picks, tuning pedal and bluegrass capo, was the pager. Placed there very carefully – so I wouldn’t lose it – right before the Sue Orfield show in December.
Here’s a snippet from that show, thanks to weebree22:
Watching that I’m reminded again what fun we had that evening. Band took good care of me. And keep in mind: somewhere just offstage, safely tucked away, sits my pager.
