Out of the hospital

I spent half of April in the hospital and am just recovering at home. Sorry I haven't responded to your posts but thank you all for your nice comments. I hope to get back to picking soon. I'm still a little weak and the stamina in the fingers just isn't there. I look forward to your comments and contributions. Thanks

I played… Continue

The other day she found a clip of herself on Youtube. First week she arrived at the school, she had the chance to sing one song with the schools Bluegrass Band at a show in Kingsport. We didn't think we would have a chance to see that, but someone had filmed it and it showed up on Youtube. The school has a great band as you can see. Here is the… Continue
