    Hey, Peggy, you’re right…it does sound a lot like Flop-eared Mule. 🙂

    Best of luck to you in your endeavors, Patricia. 🙂

    Hi everyone !  I hope y’all are keeping safe and happy (as best you can).

    Fred — I’m sorry to hear of your more recent loss.

    Thanks everyone for your hellos.  I am still interested in a new computer self-build but other things have become more immediate ;  so me blowing a lot of money on a new build has made me cautiously re-think my options.

    I have noticed a couple more new members sharing their thoughts in this forum, and I would like to give them a big WELCOME ! to BGD.  Great place to hang out, great lessons, and great people to make friends with.  Always something for everyone here.

    I had a great time practicing with fellow band members this past Saturday in Heber Springs, AR. Word is out that “Hit or Miss” practices at the triple A building every Saturday and now we have so many folks showing up to listen that we’ve hooked up our big PA system so every one can hear a nicely balanced song/instrumental each time.

    We are absolutely having a good time. Cannot wait until this crazy virus is over so we can start hitting the big audiences again. 🙂

    Sounds like fun, Fred.  Hope yours was good, Lisa.

    Glad you could find the time to check in, Gunnar.  Hope you can hang around some with us.  Even though a lot of people have been stuck inside in the whole pandemic thing, seems the internet is actually more quiet than usual…wonder what everybody’s doin?  Lol…probably their kids are keeping them really busy, maybe.  Anyhow…glad to hear from you.

    Change of seasons is always slower on the forums.

    Not much change here…work every morning, fiddle something every day…

    Today, the 22nd of September I turned 70 years of age and spent a good deal of the day playing two of my favorite tunes from Byron Berline over and over again. They are: “Charmaine” and “Jumping the Strings”. They are both in 3 sharps and a veritable blast to fiddle. If I ever get slowed down here a bit, I intend to record them and post them here. They’re fun tunes and I would suggest them to my friends here on BGD.

    Have a great day. My family is taking me out for Chinese food so I’ll be offline here and in line at the buffet. 🙂
