Hello everyone

My name is John Harris and I don't own an Osborne Chief but I am going to Nashcamp! I am flying into Nashville on Thursday from the UK and will be staying at the Comfort Inn. I would be honoured if I could be included in the Thursday night meal.

I am really looking forward to meeting with you all and learning from all the great banjo pickers I know will be at the camp.

All the best

John

Hello Kathy and Stan

Thanks for the warm welcome! Glad I am on the dinner list and look forward to seeing yous at Nashcamp!

I spoke with Bill Evans a couple of days ago and he said the main objective of Nashcamp was everyone enjoying themselves. Who can argue with that!

Speak soon

John

I realize this was somewhat tongue-in-cheek, but (minus the roll cage) it actually sounds like a pretty good idea to me! I would certainly be willing to pitch in on getting The Chief a new bike, especially since it seems to be an important part of his routine to stay fit and healthy.

Glad to hear you walked away without serious injury Chief!

I was really lucky...I appreciate the offer for a new bike but it's being repaired as best as could be expected. I was lucky...the guy was turning right and looking left...I came from the right..he had a red light and I just didn't expect him to move. Scared the hell out of him I think..I got as mad as I've ever been.
Embarrassing too..three Police cars, an ambulance, and two damn fire trucks. This guy could have killed me with one hand..but if I could have gotten to him he would have had to try. Police stayed between us all the time, until he left. Funny now that I think of it.

I'm so looking forward to camp this year...and seeing all of you again. Thank you for coming during these trying times.
We'll make sure you go back home very tired, well fed, and hopefully knowing more about the banjo than whence you arrived.

Sonny,
I had a bike accident 2 years ago when I was training for the 100 mile race.
It was really stupid. The bike I have has those special shoes that lock into the pedal.
When you come to a stop you're suppose to down shift to make it easier to start back up. I was still a newbie and forgot...I did get my shoes unclipped though.

When I started back up to cross the intersection, I was clipped back in but the gear ratio was to high to move the bike at a start up speed. I fell over like that little guy on "Laugh In" with the tricycle. Boy did I feel like an idiot. Cars were waving me on to cross the road, but I wasn't gonna do that twice. I waited for them. I banged up my elbow purty good on that one.....but I never fell like that again!

Glad you're doing well!

I would venture to bet that he would have had some trouble with that 30 years ago.
Glad you are ok S.

My elbow is finally feeling good after the cortizone shot. Playing banjo again for the first time since Sunday and it felt great to play. Man, the day I got the shot I was in so much pain that night, I couldn't sleep at all. My back is still bothering me and I have to go to physical therapy on Tuesday to learn some strengthening exercises.

Getting old is not for sissies!

Sonny!!! You didn't tell me about your bike accident!!! Sheesh! I'm glad you're OK. That is why I'm only riding on the greenways these days. Crazy drivers.

Looking forward to seeing everybody. I'll try to make the dinner if I get all moved into camp on time!
xoxo,

Bad day! The Pats not only got beat, they got beat serious and gave every sign that they're going to do that a LOT this year. Sheesh.

Ah, well - the GOOD news is, I'm really looking forward to camp and I won't be worrying about the Patriots. The way things look right now, Sundays are gonna be a great pickin' day from now through February...

Sonny,

I was at the Starvy Creek Festival last night and I heard Aaron McDarris playing your RB3 on stage. Man it really sounded good, you could really tell he was playing a Top Quality banjo. Aaron is a great picker !!!!!

Really glad to hear you are OK after your accident.

I am scheduled to hookup with Banjoey in a couple days in Branson, I am sure we will give our Chiefs a good workout.

Take Care,

Jim
