An easy tune easy to mess up.

That would sound real yummy with either bones or a tambo.   :)

Or aspirin bottle.

Yeah!- "Take 100 aspirin and call me in the morning."   lol!

Yes, Paul, we need to create an Aspirin Bottle ning!

I also used a tin pan lid on "Home Run Polka" ;)

I could use some of that aspirin right about now. I fell on my left hand hiking today, ouch... Nicely swollen, but all the fingers still seem to work. hopefully they'll be banjo-ready soon....

Oh no!   Get better soon Paul!!

I pulled some tendon in my right elbow a few weeks ago and it's still only about 1/3 healed yet.  Mopping up a quart of honey from the rough basement cement floor of all things...took about 15 buckets of hot water.

Thanks. Yeah, it doesn't take much, and even less time for something to happen... Dang.

I noticed that in your latest post, you are not wearing your customary hat.  Could it be that it has thrown off your balance?

Comment by Paul Draper on November 6, 2015 at 7:32pm
Nope. I was wearing it today when I fell. The backpack, on the other hand...
