Don, I was having some fun.  Although I was not kidding about the
robery.  It happened just like I said.  I laugh about it now.  Baird
Parker was a customer at my vintage guitar shop.  I knew him from the
town of New Hope.  He performed at a club that I also worked at.  He
came in and looked at a 1954 Les Paul.  He loved it.  Said he would be
back for it.  He showed up on a sat night but I had Thorogoods band over
for dinner and we were down in the store jammin untill 4am. He got tired
and went home, came back the next night and threw a cinderblock through
the  window and was looking for the guitar when I burst in with a gun.
His only words were "Please don't Shoot Me!"  I had him lay face down
untill the police came. It seems he had been doing this for a
while.(stealing). I still love his dad's playing.  RFH
