"Launching" the Marshall AMP
(click for a legible version)
...seems like a mixed metaphor to me ("charging up", or "plugging in", or ... oh, whatever).
Tony suggested I should wear green scales for the parade, but my scales are at the cleaners, so I'll have to find something else. I'll be joining undisclosed others for the reading. Perhaps needless to say, given the company, but the event promises to be great fun. It's been a long-time dream for Lee Ann and Tony to have a performance space for all their friends in their hometown, and now they do. I believe congratulations are in order.
