Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
Started playing when I was 7. Played professionally off/on over the years. Began competing seriously when I was about 30, about 13 years now. Still do some, it makes me practice and I really enjoy seeing my heroes, friends, and the young kids that are playing so well these days. I get lucky once in a while in them, I've still lost way more than I've won.
I look forward to picking and visiting with you. I hope you can stop by Durango one of these days. I would like to get in the studio with you and work on a project together. I also hope your family has a Merry Christmas and holiday season.
Hi, Allen....Sorry for the delay in getting back to you; not sure what Steve meant -- maybe a mispelled???? Or, it could be a "secret code"!!!!
Hope Lauren and you are doing fine and have a good Christmas.
