Happy to report that the first ever Ichiban Meet & Greet this weekend in Macon was a big success. Perhaps you'll recall that last week I put out the word that we'd be staging a little get together at the Disabled American Veterans Hall in Macon, Georgia. Music was provided by the Southern Gents.
Things went off without a hitch and we sure were surprised by the size of our readership in Macon. A nicer bunch of people you could never hope to meet. Thanks for coming out, y'all! That's our fearless leader right in the middle.

Johnny B. Denton - Tribute To The Disabled Veteran (2:42)
If you'll be in middle Georgia the day after Thanksgiving, feel free to come on out and have a beer with me and Ichiban maven Debbie D and our spouses at the Disabled American Veterans Hall in Macon. We'll probably be there by 8PM or so. Live music will be provided by the house band, the Southern Gents.
We should be pretty easy to spot.
