    Applause, applause, applause!  Congrats, Fred and Steve!!!  Well done, guys!  Congrats to the honorable mentions too, and I appreciate being among them.  Well done, everyone…oh, and better go easy on the fudge…kinda rich.


    Who invited all the Chihuahuas?  They keep begging for fudge.  I thought this was exclusively for humans, aliens, and zombies.

    Thank you all, and good night! Please make youselves at home, enjoy the bar and pot-luck snacks. Thank your servers and valets, and don’t forget to leave a tip!



    Congratulations to the Golden Lions, three…Angela, Dave and Cricket! Your posts always give the rest of us, something great to aspire towards!


    What Edmo said. Congrats all the way around. Boy that fudge was good!


    Oh gosh…I’m a-chokin’ on the fudge and Perrier.  Thank you so much.  Thanks to everybody here…for putting up with my presonus obsession and all the yakkin’ I do.  I appreciate everybody here so much.  I love music so much.  And I especially love fiddling.  And I would like to say thank you to my great aunt, Aunt Ret, who, when i was ten years old, gave me a calf to sell and then took me to the music store to buy my first guitar.  She is one of many helpful people in my life I always think of when I pick up any instrument to play.  Thank you so much, John, Scott…and all of my precious friends at BGD.  Here’s to another great year of music, learning, and fun!

    John (BGD)John (BGD)

    Winners: Look for an email from me at the address you used to sign up here at BGD. If you do not recieve an email within 24 hours, please contact me at john@bluegrassdaddy.com. Congratulations to you all!


    And…can I take my flip flops off now?  They’re really not comfortable with socks on!

    John (BGD)John (BGD)

    Cricket, thank you for your heartfelt and humble acceptance speech. You are appreciated here at BGD!


    Thank you, John.


    Wow! Congratulations to all.

    I got stuck on the Red Carpet and had to wait for the the list of winners by internet as I missed the Pay for View TV showing.

    I have enjoyed listening to every  Lion’s Den post.  This is a great place for fiddling friends to share, encourage one another and to get to know you all.

    The winners are all well deserving of these awards! Thanks for sharing your talent and thoughts on this forum.
