Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
Born and raised in Kentucky. One set of grandparents were Scottish-Irish decendents who played Stewart banjos; the other set were Swedish immigrants who liked to dance. Financed college and graduate school playing dixieland style banjo at The Red Garter and Your Father's Mustache nightclubs in Chicago, New York and Boston. Now returning to my roots by studying flatpick guitar and dabbling in Mandolin; my wife is now playing guitar as well. Life is good.
I tried calling you the other day but didnt leave a message. Just wanted to let you know that I have your camp chairs as I threw them in my trunk Saturday night when I was scrambling to get out of the rain. You'll have to let me know how the lesson went with Sutton. I had one with Bull Monday night that I felt pretty good about. Anyway, let me know when you are ready to start working on that hotel in Ohio...
Good call on getting together... I am still a little giddy from the weekend and I think everyone around me is getting tired of hearing about it. Even the dogs stopped listening... Sunday would probably be better for me. I will check to make sure and give you a call tonight or tomorrow.
