"You're Getting to be a Habit with Me"

My wife and I just celebrated our 40th anniversary with a big party Saturday night. She wanted to sing this song with my band, and it turned out pretty well except for the fact that my face is totally blocked by a music stand...

(Remember Tim Allen's semi-visible next door neighbour on the TV show "Home Improvents"? He, too, was a "Wilson".)

Anyway, this is the kind of music I like to play, which is at least sort of in the same ball park as gypsy jazz...

I live in a little tourist town called Niagara-On-The-Lake, Ontario, Canada, which is about twenty miles north of Niagara Falls.

If you are ever planning on visiting the beautiful Niagara area, feel free to PM me and perhaps we can get together and do some jamming.

    Very nice, Will. I've been thinking about adding this song to my GJ band's repertoire - it would work quite well, and I'm surprised no one has done a GJ version (at least, not to my knowledge).

    What kind of microphone is that?

    That's awesome, Will - Way to go, man! Congratulations on many scores, and years more of the same kind of happiness!

    (BTW - love the Wilson reference :D ....and just delightful, your wife, you and the rest of your crew, great tune, never heard it before. All I can see of you is your hand...and that's enough, says one guitarist to another)
    pas encore, j'erre toujours.

    My wife and I just celebrated our 40th anniversary ..

    Will, congratulations to Pam and you. It is a testament to perseverance, whether it is 40 years with the same spouse, or the same guitar! My uncle and aunt in Toronto have been married for over 60 years, so there's your next milestone!

    Speaking of Toronto, I wonder if only us folks from The Buffalo-Toronto region understood Mr. Bauer's amusing reference to the Variety Club Telethon ;0)

    thanks, fellas. Dr Jazz's antique microphone was a flea market find, but it was quiet and prone to feedback, so we took the original innards out and replaced them with a right-angle Shure microphone... it's still a bit quiet and you have to get right up on top of it when you use it.

    Jim, were you once a Buffalonian? guess the winters in Austin are a bit gentler...
