That’s right, the box with the remaining bumper stickers and nearly all the remaining HGG9 T-shirts was irretrievably lost by Fedex on the way home.

We’ve got just 2 each of Large and XL left, so first come, first served.

On a happier note, here’s one of my favorite moments from the Gathering: The Human Harp Guitar Octopus.

Stephen Bennett and Andy Wahlberg enjoy topping each year’s stunt playing (Behind-the-Head, then the next year both on one harp guitar).

This year tops them all with two harp guitars (new production Holloways), with each player playing half of each instrument.  Not only that, but I heard a rumor that they were playing two independent parts of “A Hard Day’s Night” – 1 rhythm part and 1 lead part, with each doing “half a part.”  That seems patently impossible…one fingerstyle arrangement would be ridiculous enough!
