"Hi Bo, We got in at 11:30 last night  (14 hour drive with a trailor).  Shiloh was my first event attending as a civilian, rather than military.  It is quite a change.  It was great running in to you."

"Greg, that is a great tune.  You play it with a nice groove.  I'm glad you posted it as it got me to go learn it.  After you get it down it is a fun tune to play."

Hi Bo,

 

Thanks for adding me as a friend.  I don't remember you off hand with not being able to see your face but I speak to whole lot of peopel.  If you tell me a circumstance or what we were discussing maybe that will jolt my memory.. I do have a real good memory but it is short.   Bob

Hi Bo,

 

Yeah, I remember very well.  You had the Wonder banjo that made me wonder why it was set up to shoot arrows with the forward neck angle.  I just needed something to click in my memory which is very good but short.  Hope it is working better now  Best wishes, Bob Flesher

Hi Bo,

We got in at 11:30 last night  (14 hour drive with a trailor).  Shiloh was my first event attending as a civilian, rather than military.  It is quite a change.  It was great running in to you.
