Why the banjo?

Posted by aroundthebend on Sunday, June 10, 2007

Why the banjo? My dearest wife, Rosie, and I were at a restaurant one evening where there was group of "wondering minstrels" playing dixieland music. Of course there was a banjo player, and I happened to pass the comment that I have always liked the happy sounds of a banjo. Rosie decided a banjo would make a fine Christmas gift for me, and she was right!! Christmas 2004 was when the peace and tranquility of our house was turned on its head forever with the arrival of my first pot on a stick. No, not dixieland, but bluegrass for me....and now all the planets are aligned, the birds a chirping and the bees are buzzing; for me at least, but not poor dear Rosie.

I adore the banjo, too. Life is just better with a banjo soundtrack, in my opinion!

Like Steve Martin says, " It's impossible to play a sad song on the banjo". In my house, the cats and my wife just had to put up with it. My cats have finally started coming back around.
