ballad of emmett till

"I am sad to say I had forgotten about poor Emmett Till.  A very sad chapter in U.S. history and so sad that we have not progressed nearly as far as we should have since then.  Good music and remembrance, Merle. "

Hi John. Thanks for the kind comment. I use a vox valvetronix ad50 vt xl amp. it sounds wonderful!!! For practice, I use a Chord amp, small and no fancy effects. Just reverb and a clean sound.

Thanks for the kind words on the box!...I drew that Hosanna art and added it to the box myself, it was quite a bit of work envolved, i didn't think anyone would even notice!...I am glad you did!

Thanks for the nice comments! I need to post some neck photos...if I don’t here, I will send them to you on FB. 

Pandora online? I haven’t tried that. I used to listen to some blues stations on 365 a year or two ago. I love custom/fan made stations. I’ve actually wanted to start a local blues station on AM/FM, but just too much money needed to be involved and I don’t have it. 

Ill look into Pandora! Thank you for telling me about it.

1936 Oklahoma License Plate ~ 1 page fiction (short story)

Oklahoma 1936 License Plate #134-651      By John Bolton

I was made in late 1935 in the Oklahoma State Prison at Mc Alester. I was black with yellow letters. I was issued in Goodland County in 1936 and bolted on the rear of a gray and black 31' Ford coupe with a rumble seat. I couldn't see where we were going, but when the dust wasn't too bad, I could see where we'd been.

The Ford belonged to Gibson. He had a place in…
