Tattoo Sunday!

Ohio Tattoo Museum in Bidwell, Ohio... Zach in the glass

Today, Zach and I drove over to Bidwell… near Gallipolis to meet Rich Thomas at his Ohio Tattoo Museum for a Sunday get together. There was all kinds of really cool flash and of course, beaucoup tattooed folks.

Yep... we're supporters

I was to hang out with Rich and his folks and play a little music as an afternoon interlude.

It has been noted by the great Bob Roberts… L.A. tattooist extraordinaire that ‘Blank skin is like money in the bank!’ Now I know that tattoos are not for everyone and that’s OK… those that are ‘in the family’ know what I’m talking about.

Not everyone who showed up this afternoon were tattooed… my son is a blank canvas… so is my buddy Myron, and they may remain that way. If we were all the same, what a boring world it would be!

I got my first tattoo from Lyle in his old shop on Seventh St. in San Francisco over the Greyhound Station. A demi-monde, the way it was meant to be! Chadwick was the first Bull Terrier I ever met. I loved that dog!

Then around 1500 it was time for me to pick a few tunes. I picked up my Jorma Kaukonen Martin M-30 and had a real good time for almost an hour!

Afterwards Zach and I met Vanessa, Izze, Ginger & Montana back in Athens, Ohio for a yummy dinner at Salaam and then home to Hillside Farm.

    Great movie. The original “Invasion of the Body Snatchers”.
    I think in this movie, if you ignore them, maybe they’ll just go away.

    Barbara J. here:

    If you guys want to ignore Andriy, go right ahead. Ignore me too.

    Andriy had a great time yesterday at the parade. It was very patriotic and he liked the flags that the crowd was waving. He was wearing his Hot Tuna stars and stripes t-shirt and there were a few Hot Tuna fans in the crowd, greeting him with high-fives and “Jorma!”, “Hot Tuna!”, “Jorma and Jack!”. Andriy returned their enthusiastic greetings with “HOTUNAMERICA !”

    While you were here “ignoring” us, I can assure you that we did not waste one second of the day thinking about you. Your inability to move on isn’t having any affect on us. We had a great time yesterday. Andriy will have a great time today, although he is working. I will have a great time today, a beautiful Saturday. The same for us tomorrow. Andriy is immune to childish nonsense.
    I don’t care if you are sleepy or dopey.
