Hey, Peggy, you’re right…it does sound a lot like Flop-eared Mule. 🙂
Best of luck to you in your endeavors, Patricia. 🙂September 3, 2020 at 9:54 PM #85814Great ScottModerator
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.September 4, 2020 at 11:52 AM #85817
Thank You very much, Scott. I truly appreciate it. 🙂September 6, 2020 at 9:46 AM #85821
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. 🙂September 6, 2020 at 10:04 AM #85822lisabParticipant
How wonderful! I am hoping to be in a jam soon. Glad you had a great time!September 6, 2020 at 11:40 AM #85830
Sounds like fun, Fred. Hope yours was good, Lisa.
Nothing much happening here…no time for music…nobody to play it with anyhow…lol. Hope y’all do have a nice holiday weekend and find some jamming going on and stay safe and healthy too!September 6, 2020 at 1:49 PM #85834
Thanks, Lisa and Peggy. Hope you both get to play some music in the near future. Have a great weekend. 🙂September 14, 2020 at 1:11 PM #85965Gunnar SalyerParticipant
Well, I’m still in Texas, waiting to get my flights back sorted out, and I just got a new guitar! I’m gonna try to be on here a little more often if I can, but been pretty busy.September 14, 2020 at 3:10 PM #85966
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.September 14, 2020 at 5:51 PM #85973fiddlewoodParticipant
Change of seasons is always slower on the forums.
Not much change here…work every morning, fiddle something every day…September 22, 2020 at 4:41 PM #86051
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. 🙂September 25, 2020 at 5:08 PM #86096

I am so sorry! That must be terrible! Anyway, hurry up and get well soon so that you can play again! 🙂September 30, 2020 at 8:18 PM #86189
Right now, I am in the process of being sick. Nothing bad, but it stinks, especially since I can’t go to school in person because of it. 🙁 The good thing about being sick, though, it gives me plenty of time to look back on my past self (six months ago) and see how far I’ve come. It also is a plus because I can read all my books for the fiftieth time. 🙂
SIDENOTE: Some great books:
– Pride and Prejudice
– A Night Divided
– All Creatures Great and Small All Things Bright and Beautiful The Lord God Made Them All
– Mutiny on the Bounty
(You should read these.) 🙂September 30, 2020 at 8:19 PM #86190
Sorry, forgot to mention, being sick also lets me practice my violin even more! 🙂October 1, 2020 at 6:43 AM #86193
sorry to hear you are under the weather. sounds like you have a great reading list there and yeah some practice time too. hope you are feeling great and safely back in school again soon. take care.
