    “Are you a bluegrass fan?”
    -————————-
    Kept myself in gas money and “extras” for over 60 years from everything from rhythm guitar, dobro, steel, bass, mandolin and anything else with strings. Left the banjo to someone who could play the ^& thing ! Had fun, jammed with a lotta stars and gave my good stuff to the nephews who continue making a living from “my hobby.!”

    ’cuz accidents cause people! Now go HOME !” G’night everybody !!

    Well, at least (unarmed Americans) had the guts to take down our ‘I only wanted food’ train assailant instead of screaming; "À l’aide! gendarme, s’il vous plaît !! and then wait for them to come, tootling their little whistles and accounting for the victims that would have been killed, save for a defective bullet that jammed his whole plan. And while I’m typing, I note an article in my ‘BarkeaterTown News’ (NY) that more deer are being killed by traffic than by hunters in the woods. Sad state of affairs, that. It translates to the fact that this latest generation is less interested in keeping the deer and varmint population down than finding out that their newest Buzzmobile makes a much more dangerous weapon where the animal, in it’s dying, can kill it’s killer.
    Irony.
    Guns? Me? Used ‘em mosta my life. Only possess one now, which has convinced a couple of 3 AM ’window-testers’ that they should drop their guns and pass the time face-down while we waited for the cops to arrive. A fun night that, in retrospect, contributed to the bride’s demise as she was a very excitable woman that just couldn’t handle these things very well..
    And so my tale is told..I wish it were different..

    As a part-time job to make ends meet, I used to sell and maintain Muzak equipment back in the early 60’s when an E-4’s pay lasted only a 3-week month in the Biloxi area. Fun, but tending bar and guitar-flailing was more profitable and besides, I met a lower-class of wimmin !

    Was “out of country” when all this “Rawhide” biz was on TV. Should find me some DVD’s of the shows and play onward.
    I DO remember my ex-neighbor having a great love for TV Westerns and could name the passengers in a stagecoach scene, he was so obsessed.
