I am replying here to Tim Garrett's message. My recollection is that Gladys Shrimp was owned by Craig and Emily Smith who later sold their business when they split up. I have heard from Emily but not Craig, but I think they've both done well and been happy. I still have several Gladys Shrimp articles -- 2 belts I cannot get rid of even though I can't get into them these days; 1 hat (the other got lost along the way); a pocketbook that still looks pretty good; and a signed original guitar strap that I treasure. Their stuff was beautifully made and was some of the nicest I had ever seen for that era. I hope you were able to get your repairs done. I'd love to know if the shop is still in Athens.
I will be going to the Rally to Restore Sanity. I'm not completely sure why I feel compelled to go. I may be able to understand this better after I've gone, been buffeted in a crowd, and come out the other side.
In the meantime, here's hoping everyone who wishes to
