That’s a good question and the answer is, for a couple of reasons.
First, the *%#@!!! flu bug that sidelined us in December and hung on, in various forms, for about a month decided to pay a return visit to both of us in February and hung on for a few more weeks. As those of you who wrestled with this fellow found out, once he takes up residence, he really, really, really doesn’t want to leave. We’re really, really, really, glad he finally did.
The second reason is related to the first in that, while we were down for the count with the flu, we didn’t have a whole lot of energy for anything. As a result, we got really, really, really behind in writing our book on Les Paul. As understanding as our publisher is, we have a deadline and, now that we’re feeling normal (Or, as close to “normal” as the two of us ever get.), we’ve been putting everything else on hold while we try our best to make up for lost time and meet it.
At the moment, we’re spending every day and, when we’re up late, a lot of nights working on the book. Also, obviously, we want to put our a quality product so, even though we’re behind schedule, we’re NOT going to just throw a lot of stuff together to get it in on time. We want to be proud of the finished product. We want to feel that Les would be proud of the finished product. And, we want you to enjoy reading it.
So, now you know “the REST of the story” and, with all of the above in mind, we hope you’ll understand if we now back out of this blog and get back to work.
That is, assuming we haven’t misplaced our number 2 pencils.
