First week of retirement

Posted by Wills Creek on Wednesday, April 4, 2012

Hello all ,

   The first week has been a hoot!  Cathy  and I went to  Wilmington, Ohio  this past weekend and had  areal great time listening to bands like Del Mc Coury   and the Boxcars,  Paul Williams , David Davis and the Warrior River Boys Kenny and Amanda Smith Band and a few others. Put in a little pickin time  not as much as I would like  but still picked just the same. I acually got noticed for the first time for picking the banjo. which is not what I'm noted for.  Thanks goes to all the friends and teachers here on the Hangout! It's a cool feeling when you know someones out there listening to you play and you think  Wow I think that guys got it down pretty good.  At least I wasn't  throwen of the jam for not  sounding bad , Been   finishing up my Strawberry Rhubarb Wine today and Picking a few tunes on the side. Got Two gallons and about 14 bottles  corked up and boy I think they will great wines when aged Planning on starting  Pineapple strawberry wine tommorrow The wife home and we'll right at it  tommorrow.  I having a blast so far  !!

The main thing you have to get used to is every day is now "Saturday!". Your pick'n will really improve Frank. Enjoy!

It takes about 5 years to really get retired. Everyday is Saturday and then it's Sunday and then it starts over again. We go to Festivals and stay the whole week. I play everday and go to at least one jam a week sometimes more. I don't know how I worked and got everthing done. Best of luck Gary C
