It's my banjoversary!

Posted by jrjenks on Friday, June 20, 2008

It's been one year since the redhead gave me the best birthday present ever. Let's relive that moment, shall we?

It's 2007, we're having a birthday dinner at a nice vegetarian restaurant and I'm opening a big, oddly-shaped package from the redhead.

What's this? A banjo? A banjo!

Isn't she wonderful?

And as you know (especially if you've been reading my blog and the 61 posts [so far] with the Banjo label) I've been working on my banjo playing ever since.

How am I celebrating my banjoversary? By blogging. A lot. I'm going to use this occasion to have a little public think session about where I've been and where I'm going, banjo-wise.

So, if you like that sort of thing, then this is the sort of thing you'll like and you should really like the next few posts.

Update: It's not just my birthday. It's not just my banjoversary. Apparently, June 20th is the happiest day of the year for everybody. (Thanks for the link, little sister!)

Great stuff. I also received my banjo as a gift - for Xmas/40th birthday at the turn of the year. It's fabulous isn't it. I hope you keep enjoying playing and learning for many years to come!

So your banjo came right in the front door like mine did and yours  disguised as a gift no less. Have you been able to sleep, concentrate or do anything your suppose to since it arrived last year?

BryanWB: Thanks!  So far I've posted about my first six months and am working on a post about the second six, with more to come.  I think this banjoversary celebration is going to take about a week..

TopCat: Yeah, the banjo is a great gift for the right person.  Glad to meet another "right person"!!!

strokestyle: Actually I've found that the banjo give me back time in my day.  The days where I keep to a good practice schedule tend to be my more productive days in other areas of my life, too.
