I went through a couple of Fisher component sets but started out with a little old Cassette recorder when I was in elementary school. For my records I always had to use my parents record cabinet that was in the den.

My dad had a stereo system and it looked very much like that! On a cheap old bookshelf and I was not allowed to touch it. Haha.

Now I mostly use Google Play Music, it's nice to have virtually any song at your fingertips but it's just not the same.

My grandmother had one of those enormous consoles with an LP player inside of it too.

Being an optimist and my shaving soap half full,  my thank you letter to Paladin for winning the Purple Haze brush is ready to mail.

So, a friend of mine for over 30 years, who collects our brushes and knows about the Purple Haze Lollapalooza, gives me a Purple Haze Zippo lighter.

Pretty cool, eh?

He even included some lighter fluid.

But he knows I have a Marshall amp.

And and a fully original '65 Fender Strat (not of the re-issue variety).

What should I make of this?

What does this guy expect me to do?

Is he really a friend?

So I've been afraid to ask in case I wasn't one one the winners or even worse you actually did use that lighter and burn up all those beautiful brushes but...... Any winners yet?

I ended up putting the lighter away.

Cody's working on pulling everything together and identifying the winners by random selection. We'll wait to make private contacts with any of the six until all are known. When that's done, I'll post an announcement in the usual places. I think we'll probably leave it to the winners to say who they are if they so choose, which we hope they will do.
