Thanks for following up on the guitar solos. Good to see Randy Rhoads get some love, and shame on me for forgetting "White Room."

Fred has an incredibly lazy sit. That dog needs to do some back exercises to help in his rehab from all the surgeries. Seriously. No, I'm not kidding. If you come through, remind me and I'll teach you so you can do them with him.

Love to follow you guys on your journey, thanks so much for blogging your exploits each day. Gives me excellent ideas for my own US driving tour.

Speaking of guitar solos, one of my all time favorites is David Gilmour on the Echoes track of the Meddle album.

Echoes takes a while to ramp up, but around 7:00 (about 6:00 on the "Live from Pompeii" video) he just starts to wail. Along with the bass, keyboards and drums, and you end up with an amazing 3+ minutes.

You've probably seen it, but the Pompeii video is on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uLJ_QVfT_wM

Hey Lori -- Fred has had that "sloppy" sit since the first surgery. We do excersizes with him to strengthen legs and back, which have significantly increased his strength. When I take him in for his checkups.. he sits "pretty" like a champ without being officially asked. I think it may be just a lazy habit at this point. Interestingly enough -- for a while Hank was mimicing that sloppy sit for a while. Not sure if we are going to make it to Utah -- but if we do, I'd love to see what you recommend for further strengthening.

I hope you had a chance to meet Eric Janssen at the CA. Great people there!
