Thought I would get that Clifftop stuff off and put in an update. Went to the Hopin' Jon festival (whenever) and broke a serpintine belt on the motorhome just south of Burlington. The end of a terrible week. My electrical system didn't work right at the festival, Golf Cart burnt up a contact, Everytime I took my garbage out, someone would go through it to see if I had re-cycled, (which I had not)! Too many coo coo's there and I couldn't get away from them.
Anyway we moved from Orangeburg in September to Spartanburg (Moore Community).. Very nice here. Haven't found anyone to jam with. I become a hermit in the wintertime. Could not park my Motor home in the new yard. (I'm staying with my daughter and son-in-law.) so I bought a 20'X12' "playhouse", insulated/wired/panaled and moved in. It's great, have my instruments on the wall, 50" tv, wifi hook-up for the computer.
So I am now waiting for the annual trip to Mt. Airy to get my head screwed back on correctly...

Retired US Navy CPO, retired Aerospac Mfg Eng, retired machinist. Left the Bluegrass behind 20 years ago, Back in 3 months ago. Most of my favorites are now dead and I don't even know who the greats are today or any of the new tunes... Plan on makeing a bunch of festivals in 09. I will be learning the oldtime folk music and change my favorite genre to something more suitabe to an old guy like myself.. Update: Well today is 1/10/10. I had quite a year in 09. Went to several Bluegrass festivals, the Fiddler's convention at Mt. Airy, The West Virginia String Band Festival at Clifftop, Magfest (Indie Rock) at Lake City, Fl. Jack's Picking Parlor in Williamston, SC. had a full year of exposure to the greatest music in the world... Waiting on the warm weather to show up and what ཆ has for this old guy....
