BP, & Mrs. BP,

   Congrats to both of you. Get her dressed in her best AU outfit for the special occasion.

   I take my wife out to a Chinese Restaurant every year for our anniversary because that was all there was open when we got married. She thinks it is nostalgia. I look at how much money I have saved over the last 41+ years opposed to what I'd have spent if I took her to steak and lobster or such. I get her one rose for each year we have been married and that is getting a little pricey. I suggested getting silk roses so each year I could just buy one more and add to the existing bouquet. She would not go for that. ::)

Married on Earl's birthday, did you plan that? Congratulations! It will be 42 for us in the spring. My wife tolerated my banjo picking fairly well too. Now it's just the occasional mando session. During tough times I would joke that if I had shot her when I wanted to, I would be out by now. She never really got the joke.
Earl's a pretty good picker, got a lot of folks inspired and started, which was great for the instrument. I am a big fan of many players who credit him for their first exposure and am friends with many of them who took it to anoother level, like Bill Keith (a dear friend I miss, and icon in my eyes), Bela, Tony Trischka, Noam Picknelny, Rex McGee, Ryan Cavanaugh, etc. I wonder if you listen to any f those guys?
Have a great anniversary!! 8)

We met up with a couple close friends at their house and had our picture took.  I cut the walnut tree and milled the lumber that went into the mantel.  The tree came from a hill right above the house place where I grew up.  It had died.  Matt put all the pieces together.

My buddie Matt likes to fish, if you can tell.  That small mouth right above my head would have been very close to a state record if he had caught it just a bit farther over in Mississippi waters.  



 

 They started a fire before they put the food on.  I will say it was mighty fine.  I started eating as soon as it hit the plate, so no picture of the presentation.

Thanks for the well wishes. 

Resonator you got the first letter right.  ;) Her name is Debbie, and I met her at a swimming pool instead of a kitchen.  She was 17 and I was 18.  Odds wasn't too good was they, but we do everything together.  Started camping when first married, then playing bluegrass, then horse riding.  After I got the sawmill she agreeded to offbear,....untill she found out what that was, she backed out on that.

WV Samiller I bought the roses for a while, but I found out a nice card does pretty good.  I did make the mistake one year of not getting one.  As long as my memory wrorks, I wont do that again.

Greenhorn I have listened to several you mentioned there, but some I have not.  My youngest son is named Earl, that was Debs grandpaw's name, so his name has a double meaning I guess.  I have never tried the Keith tuners, banjo is hard enough for me to keep in tune as it is.  Since the wife has tolorated the banjo so well, I wonder how she will take to the fiddle?  Thanks again folks.  Banjo (Tim Scruggs)

Tim, I couldn't help notice your last name and have to ask if there is any relation? Keith tuners (Beacon Banjo) is still in business and doing well if you ever change your mind. It's run by Bill's son Martin (also a dear friend) and the world famous service remains the same. My banjo was tuned when I bought it  :D :D, but the tuners allow for quick alternate tuning's. I am not much good at it, mostly I mess with the mando. I do have a fiddle laying here, tried it once. Scared the cats pretty bad, worse then the vacuum. Besides, my son-in-law is a kick-butt fiddler and gets calls to sit in with a of of bands, Jay Unger lives around the corner, and his daughter lives next door to him, so with all that world class talent I don't see much point in even trying. But if I drink too much one night, I just might try again (it might sound better then).
 Anyway, if your bride can tolerate the banjo and actually find a way to work with it, you have something very special there. Congratulations again, and may many more happy days fill your path together.

We had a blast last night.  I ate so much I didn't want to get up this morning...a feller shouldn't do that.  

I thought Matt done a pretty nice job with the mantel as well, at least I will know where a chunck of that tree is.  I have a couple more of those slabs drying in the saw mill shed, should the need arise.

Only reason I got the fiddle out, was there was a young girl that was given a fiddle by her grandfather and she wants to learn to play a simple tune for him before he undergoes a fairly difficult opperation coming up.  I found tabs for a couple of fairly easy tunes and tuned her fiddle for her.  Hopefully she can learn a few licks.  Don't claim any kin to Earl from North Carolina. Never researched it. 

Thanks again for the well wishes.  Banjo

Well, not knowing the particulars (she may have a particular tune in mind) if I could suggest Ashokan Farewell, known the world over as a lovely and haunting tune. Easy to learn and there are a lot of videos to help out with the timing. First tune I have learned on every instrument I have attempted. In no small coincidence, I live two miles from the waters edge of the Ashokan Reservoir and about 4 miles through the woods from the Ashokan Center, where the tune was written by Jay Unger years before it was included in Ken Burns Civil War documentary. Not tha any of this has anything to do with your mission. It's a beautiful tune and easy to learn, even for me. I am betting you know the tune.
