I would just call around to people in the neighborhood that reupholster furniture and tell them the dimensions you need. They'll have the foam and maybe you can pick the fabric or take them some. 

 
Thanks,I'll look into that tomorrow.I found a bunch of possibilities under "cot mattress" but I'd still have to do something about the back cushion.

I found a couple leads under "day bed cushion" but haven't heard back yet. 

I couldn't measure the sofa but I  (duh {#Doh}) measured the old cushions.

I need 3 each of  25x15 and 25 x 30 or some combo or single mattress that would work(inches,not feet,it's not a gift for Manbirds imaginary 50 foot girlfriend)

Where can I get some cheap cushions for something like this? (just a pic I found on E-Bay,but my camera is downstairs and I'm not)

 I don't have the exact dimensions as it's standing on end in a corner I can't get to right now.All of  Amazon's replacement cushions were crazy expensive.All I need is a piece of foam or some corncobs covered in some cheap fabric.

Not sure if this would work better as a journal entry or what, but here goes.

A coworker of mine has designed a fantastic one-handed gaming controller for people who are missing limbs.  He's looking into patenting/producing the thing within the year, but is having a hard time coming up with a name for the controller and/or the "brand". 

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

The uniform looks more American to me, but the aiguillettes on both shoulders (and in two colors) seems wrong. I don't think it's German (they wouldn't have been smiling at the time or that cordial with these people). Any military uniform geeks that can help me figure out who he might have been affiliated with?

Thanks guys!  I love having my own private team of experts.  

In looking at the larger image, the right hand collar button does look like it says US. I can't quite make out the left hand one, but I'll look at the original tonight.  

As Red mentions, the epaulets still look odd and I thought the aiguillettes were a left/right thing depending on if you served the presidents office, or the dept. of defense. I also thought the colors were exclusive to the branch of service. So having them on both shoulders and two colors would be odd. 

Belgium would make a lot of sense, I think this was in Luxembourg. But a US collar button seems pretty conclusive, unless those were passed around the allies.

Buzz is correct about the badge but...

Some of the smaller nations that participated in the war on both sides often used parts (or in some cases, complete) of the uniforms of the more powerful countries. There were various reasons for this, not least of which was simply availability. A lot of these smaller armies were also trained, armed and organised by the larger allies. The uniform is generally American in appearance but the rank markings on the epaulets are odd as are the brass collar buttons. He could be Belgian, Dutch or any number of other nationalities.

 
search images for  "us army collar insignia ww2"
 
a larger image from Islander may show the detail.

Well figure out who these people are and try to get a message thru:

Booking agent
Record label promotions person/A&R person
Road manager

Don't forget to try Trey's people and Hornsby's people.
 
And most of all, understand that pre-show, there's going to be a lot going on. Lots of press, etc. and they'll just be busy. It's a longshot any way you slice it. I still think if you have a local reporter who's likely to cover the show at some point, you should hit that person with the "local angle" story pitch. Not that you're trying to meet the band, but just the general feel-good story that they can run in their Sunday supplement. As a reporter, they'll have access to press releases/agency contacts and presumably would then send the clippings to that person. Who might read it. Who might then....
 
So it's not likely. I'd send out another round of feelers just to see, but by Memorial Day (or Easter), try to forget this. Don't allow yourself to go into the show feeling disappointed, you'll only be diminishing the experience of seeing this historic show.

 

you're so good. You really outta be a therapist. honestly.
