    As it turns out, I will NOT be performing at the NAMM show. My elderly parents are doing an Antique Show in Miami all next week and they called me in a panic that they need my help, so I have to fly to Florida on Monday and will not return until the following Wednesday

    Sorry to hear that you won't get to play at NAMM. But you do get to spend some time with your folks, which ought to maybe balance the scales a bit? Have a great trip!

    A few years back I was dating this girl who got this great opportunity to go on an all-expenses-paid, work-related vacation to Hawaii over Christmas. The other option was to stay here to spend Christmas with her elderly parents who have no other children. She weighed all the options and chose to stay. I was impressed.

    Your parents raised a darn fine son, Jay.

    They’re fine. But they’re antique dealers and 95 and 90 who do a big show in Miami that they’re too old to still be doing. They thought that with their helper they could do it alone but as it drew close they got panicked that they needed help from me again. This is the swan song and they both know it.

    Nothing off-base here.

    The OP did what he had to do I guess. It’s a shame he had to miss out on all of that fun.
