Friends/Family - feel the love?

So, I have just under 100 friends and family on Facebook. I don't spend a lot of time on Facebook, but when I do go there, I always Like/Comment as much as possible, and I get lots of great responses when I post something. I daresay that I could ask for a ride to the airport or help moving and get plenty of volunteers.

But, heaven forbid anyone would want to hear me play the banjo. I waited a full year to get good enough to post a link to a song I played. I chose Foggy Mountain Breakdown because even the Grinch would like that. Well, here it is a couple days later. One person has listened to it. That was my wife, and she only listened because I invoked my spousal right to emotional support.

So, thank you BHO friends for being there. Much similar to a leper colony, we provide support to one another. We are willing to endure a couple minutes of mild/moderate discomfort to support and encourage one another. I appreciate that and will look for opportunities to return the favor. I owe you that.

;-)  John (banjo leper?)

Just in case it was not obvious, I write this tongue-in-cheek. I am not offended at all. After, I don't want to sniff their armpits, and that's pretty much how most folks view banjo music. I, on the other hand, believe that one has to be an active listener to enjoy banjo music. Much like classical, there's a lot going on there. So if you just want something simple to listen to while you do your taxes, or twerk a stranger, banjo music is not going to be your cup of tea. It will require your listening muscles. :-)

Yes, you need a sharp ear. Spock had two that were out of this world. Feel the Vulcan love. Interesting. Scotty was always 'beaming' from ear to era and had warp DRIVE.

@Jonny5 - ah, Star Trek and banjo. :-)

I have to take it all back, someone finally listened to it and commented. Then others noticed it. I am loved after all. :-)
