Whats up every body!! 7 months and 23 days, still not able to use my left hand, but am getting pretty good at the rolls, The rolls blended toghter do make good music, well just just thought I would stop for a while, my father has been sick and is down in his back, and can't walk, my mother can't take care of him she gave him the wrong meds monday and i had to take him to the ER, so hard to put him back in the rehab center, but they can watch him better there i guess, so i will say to all you young people out there in banjo land enjoy your parents as much as possible, and be ready to make some hard decisions, I am the only child and when your dad has you by your hand and asking you to take him home, wow the pain that goes along with it is huge, so about rambling i know we are only suppose to talk banjo, just need to speak out, thanks dt
