I wonder if Sonny knows we started a new thread. Should probably post a notification to the last thread and let everyone over there know there's a new thread. A lot of folks just monitor the Chief thread and don't catch it if a new one starts up.

Tim,
Usually the mods lock the old thread and start a new one when it gets too big.
Tyler started this one (Therefore, I vote for Tyler as a new mod)!

Keep practicing Rick...I hear there are a lot of verses!

Go Titans! Smite the Steelers!

Hey Stan!

I was watching the Part 7 thread just to see if it was locked, and assumed since it wasn't locked that it was still the active thread. Finally, I bounced up to the next level and discovered everyone had left. Kinda felt like Sid from Ice Age...

Evenin'...
On my way up to the Monroe Mandolin Camp...stopped and had lunch with Mr. Awzbone...along with Ronnie Reno,Larry Stephenson,and J.D. Crowe......heard some neat stories from Sonny and J.D.....
Now...I might be talked into retelling some of these stories at the Camp...I'll really tell a juicy one if the Camp sells out or somebody buys a banjo from Sonny....that way he'll have the money to pay me not to tell it....
I'll even sing a song I wrote about him way back...was always scared he would fire my big self if I sang it then...aint scared of that now....

I hope all of you can make it to the Camp...and enjoy yoselves....it sounds like so much fun...

Thanks for the invite Kathy. I don't know a single verse/break to Jesse James... am I still allowed? Debbie and I haven't figured out when we'll be arriving yet. Would love to make it to dinner. I'll let you know as soon as we get our schedules ironed out.

Man..I been wondering for weeks where you all had gone..I felt abandoned....

Raymond Edward Huffmaster...You know too much...favorite was when you were washing the bus and turned the hose on Bobby..He got out of Dodge in a hurry didn't he.
Re (Loafers Glory) drove the bus (known as the refrigerator because it was all white) for us, played on the Opry, TV shows, recorded, and sang on our shows sometimes. Nice man..but he do know too much for comfort...he do. Remember the rule..what you see and what you hear, when you leave, leave it here...it stayeth here! We'll have a good time.

Now, it's officially the Chief thread again.

Welcome back Sonny! Hope you are well.

Who can close the Part 7 thread so everyone will know to look elsewhere for the tribe?

I'm doing pretty good. Health is as good as could be. I ride bicycle 15 miles every day..rain or otherwise..for strength. This morning I was struck by a car. Ruined my bike, I landed on my right shoulder and that, plus the right leg weakness (left over from the stoke) is the reasons for riding to begin with. I'm glad I retired from the banjo and music business entirely. I would be a mess trying to play.

Larry Stephenson badgered me, harassed, and just generally worried the living daylights out of me trying to get me to sing lead on the chorus of "Me And My Old Banjo" until I finally gave in. Kristin Scott Benson played my Granada on that album, so I reluctantly agreed to do it. It was really hard to do. I guess one must exercise those muscles too. I had a hard time staying on pitch. Very unusual for me.
Ronnie Reno, Larry, and I (My Wednesday lunch crew..along with Robin Smith) sang that chorus. Sounded OK. She played it well..really well...but then she plays everything well.

Aaron McDarris (Rhonda Vincent) is playing my RB3 (182-3) for a while. It's bad for a good banjo to sit unplayed. I think they forget how to sound good. Kraco goes someplace else if you leave him alone too long. Kraco? WHAT/WHO is Kraco you ask?
Ask Kristin..she knows.

Camp is soon.

Daggone Man!
Hope you're OK Chief.
Bikes and cars dont mix well.
Maybe Kraco was riding on your handlebars.

Please take care!
