Good deal, Bob and thanks for your message and service.  And welcome to a great hobby.  How is the playing going?  knotlenny's cbg 101 helped me the most.

Hey, Bob.  I really liked the chief.  Now after seeing your USN ring icon, I am guessing you might be a retired CPO. 

I used to be in a little band/ singing group called CPO.  In our case it was Chamber Pot Orchestra.

It's good to have you for a CBN friend.
