"You folks that build all by hand tools put extra soul, sweat and sometimes blood into your work. I use power tools when I can, but I think the traditional spirit of the cbg calls for some imperfections and character. As a small nod…"
Thank you uncle John, The more I read about Dave the more of an amazing person he seemed to be.
Its always been an ambition to play an instrument but work got in the way, now retired having been working with wood part of my life I can build and learn to play something I have created, its certainly got a grip on me.
Thanks for the invite Uncle John. I really don’t know what the heck I’m doing in this site - so un tech savvy. I tried to send you a message before but thought if I push “comment” it would then appear here. It didn’t. Maybe you already got my message (maybe more than once). Anyway I wanted to say Corsicana’s a cool enough place. I’m including links to Rope Walker Radio Show Corsicana episode if you’re interested. They’re kinda long (about 20 minutes) good music though.

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.
Note: I am working on a collection of short and very short stories that all tie together in a fictional place called Goodland County Oklahoma. Some are music related and some feature CBGs. I appreciate your comments, good, bad and corrective.
