Gut Rumbles

Real life update

Good news and bad news...
Good news stemming from the bad.

The bad news is that Rob's beloved Mommie passed away on April 18th, surrounded by her loving family.

If you'd like to read, or leave a message in, Mommie's online guestbook, here's the link to it.

Quinton, of course, was at her funeral service and it's said he's becoming quite an impressive young man.
He'll be getting his drivers license soon...

As much as it would have pained Rob to have experienced the loss of Mommie, I know he'd be as proud as a man could be of his son.

Quinton was his pride and joy. He loved that young man so very much.
How I wish he were here to see this.

I miss you, Rob, every day.
And, I know I'm not the only one.

I hope you've found the peace that so eluded you in life.


Hey, could whoever is managing this site please email me?

Thanks much.

I hate to hear that mommie passed. But I am glad to hear that Quinton is doing well. Godspeed Rob.

Just Damn!

That is sad news.

Godspeed, Mommie.

That's to Rob, also.

You know, I'm pleased that Rob and his Mommie are reunited, and I'd love to have seen his reaction to realize that he'd been wrong about the very prospect of that being even possible.

I think tonight will require a sip and cigar in memory, and honor.

To a very fine lady, and her son, both missing; I raise my glass in salute.

What DAX said.

Let's hope that Rob is with her now.

I am very sorry to hear of Mommie's passing. Please pass my regrets and very best wishes to the family. Just from his writings here it was obvious that Rob loved his Mommie very very much.

Now then, about Rob... do you really think that he's liking "peace"? Or "quiet"?

Nahhh.. he's trying real hard to play some good music, and drive some other angels right out of their minds by being the naturally contrary cuss that he's always been.

Anyone who ever read Rob's blog, much less met him, would expect him to be raising some sort difficult question. And Rob's answer to the question would be... difficult, at best.

As we would expect.

And Mommie would still say that "He's a GOOD boy!"

After three years I still come here... And I see others do too!

We miss you Rob!

Three years. RIP, Acidman.

First of all THANK YOU for keeping Gut Rumbles updated. Went back on for the first time in a while last night and read for over an hour. Going to try to make boiled peanuts today.

Mommie will be missed so much. I didn't get to attend her funeral which I so regret. Would have loved to see Quinton, but living out here in Texas and working 5 days a week...made it imposible. I'm hoping to make it t o Savannah soon.

I would love to hear from anyone...I miss all you in the blogosphere and feel free to drop me a line those of you who are still around.

If Quinton ever sees this...This is your sister. I think about you often and would love to see you next time I come to Savannah. Much love and I hope your life is going great!

Sorry to hear about Rob's mom. It is good to know Quinton is doing well.

Sam and Quinton, my condolences.

May Rob and Mommie be enjoying each others company. I'm sure he has a song for her.

Hey, girl!
Great to see you again!

Everybody, Rob included...

I am *so* sorry I've let Gut Rumbles slide periodically, as I have lately.

I'm even more outraged at myself that the 26th slipped by me so smoothly this year.

I've been confronted with things in my life lately that have required all of my attention and survival skills and I've been in that mode since the middle of May.

It's no excuse to have let this get by me, but it has been hellacious and I am going to get Gut Rumbles back on track and keep it there for as long as God lets me.

What I'm going to do now is get it up to the 26th and link to my Guitar Man post from last year and let it sit for a while, until 1.) I get settled in Jersey and, 2.) everybody's had a chance to see it (again).

Rob... I wish now more than ever that you were still here.
I could use your advice and knowledge born of experience right about now.

Plus, Dude... I'm fricken single again.

How cool would it be if I could come back down to Georgia and see Cat again, and you, for a while?


Too cool, is how cool that would be...

Anyway, I'm sorry I've been lettin' you down here.
I *will* have my shit back in one sock soon and Gut Rumbles rollin' along again, like it's supposed to be doing.
Cross my heart -that'll-always-love-ya.

Peace, Babe...

Late to chime in but want to send my condolences to Rob's family on the loss of Mommie. I don't get here that often anymore but am glad to see the place is still going.

Posted by: Lisa W. on July 17, 2009 01:14 PM

Please add my condolences to Rob's family. May Mommie's memory be your treasure. I don't read G-R more than once a quarter, am glad to see Rob remains on-line.

Posted by: djs on July 28, 2009 02:17 PM

Let's hope that Rob is with her now.

Haven't walked this path in a loooong time. Glad to see the familiar faces are still around. I'm so very sorry to read about Mommie and I can't help but hope that she and Rob are together once again.

Sam and Quinton: You both are often in my thoughts and I wish nothing but peace and prosperity to you both in your lives.

Stevie: Thank you, again, for all you do to keep Rob's memory alive.

Rob: I still miss you, you crazy bastard <3
