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

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.
