Mysterious Disappearances Including Aerosmith!

Well am I ever disappointed. Not so much for me, but for Betty. She wanted to see Aerosmith since it’s her all-time favorite rock band. It has been on her Bucket List as a “must do” for quite some time now. So, we headed out of town to Concord to see Aerosmith’s Let Rock Rule concert at the Concord Pavilion.

Shortly after we arrived at the hotel, we discovered that we were amongst many disappointed fans who’d made the trek to the Bay Area only to be let down by the news of the concert’s cancelation.

According to RollingStone online:

Aerosmith were forced to cancel their concert in Concord, California, Wednesday night just hours before taking the stage “due to illness,” the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band posted on their official website. However, TMZ is reporting that drummer Joey Kramer is suffering from heart complications that will require the band to cancel some upcoming tour dates as well, including their gig at George, Washington’s Gorge Amphitheatre on Saturday night. A representative for the group did not confirm or deny the report, telling Rolling Stone, “We have no further information to report at this time.”

Aerosmith owes my wife a concert, so stay well...PLEASE!

Call me a skeptic, and I could be wrong, but I’m not entirely convinced that the “due to illness” excuse was the actual reason behind the cancelation. Getting old is not for the faint of heart, and I suspect it may be a bit more grueling on rock bands. It’s certainly possible that there are conflicting reports.

Nonetheless, Aerosmith disappeared like ghosts in the night. Without as much as a single note being played. What a letdown.

We made the most of it and ended up going to a nice dinner and just enjoying a quick road trip and shopping, which gave us some time away from the shop.

Hey Aerosmith! You owe my wife a concert!

Ghostly Happenings

Recently, we discovered that two drawers in our warehouse filled with pens, markers and box-cutters mysteriously disappeared from our warehouse. They were just GONE one day.

No one here has any idea why someone and something would wander in and remove what amounts to 35-40 pens and various markers for no apparent reason. At first, we thought it was a simple prank being played on us by one of our employees.


My sister Jan was absolutely convinced that it was Tim who was the culprit and kept questioning him to see if he was pulling our leg. Tim vehemently denied any involvement. But, Jan persisted with several more interrogations before she was convinced, finally releasing Tim back to his workstation.

As far as we can tell, nothing else was removed other than the two drawer boxes of pens. Now, we have to purchase box-cutters, which is a very common and tool one utilizes daily in a shipping and receiving area.

Oh, and my favorite cup, always on my desk, has mysteriously disappeared as well! Something’s going on here.

Honestly, I’ve always thought there was a ghost in this building. There have been some fairly inexplicable occurrences that have manifested in this building. I’ve been here alone and heard noises, and even pounding coming from unknown sources, when I knew, for a fact, that I was the ONLY one here!

Why would THEY take our pens?

Why would THEY take our pens?

Over the last several years, we’ve had so many estates from magicians that have passed on; it may be one of them who’s meandering about the property looking for some old U.F. Grant piece they believe they’ve misplaced.

Yes, I believe ghosts may have been at work here. Or maybe it was Aerosmith?

Mike Super Performs in the Finals on AGT

And speaking of ghosts, our friend and good customer Mike Super appeared moved on into the finals on American’s Got Talent with his ghostly childhood friend, Desmond performing an eerie effect on former Spice Girl, Mel B.

Sadly, he did not receive enough votes from America to move on further in the competition, but Mike is a very fine presenter and we are proud to know him. Congratulations Mike Super on a job well done. You did our profession proud.

Take a look at the video.

Have a great weekend my friends,


P.S. I just had a thought. Maybe it was Desmond that stole the pens from the warehouse?
