You, my friends are cordially invited to the First Annual Sunny California VIRTUAL CBG & Roots Music Fest(Note: as used here, virtual means IMAGINARY). This is a potluck meal, so please bring a…Continue
"Thanks, Rope. I know you like story songs too.
Tastee Freeze is long gone from our area, but they were good back in the day. As were the A&W rootbeer places that are few and far between. (one of the best things of…"
"OK, I am thinking about it. It may be under 90 degrees most of the week and I could build new or maybe just add frets to a dulcimer tuned build that mostly sits untouched. Are you fretting one string or all? Tuning GDG?"
"Thats a great song, UncleJake! Simple story, simple song, and it works so well ‘cause everybody’s been there. Mightabeen mystery girls from our pasts...I had forgotten about the old Tastee Freeze. Had to wiki it to see it is still a…"
"Great song Uncle John! I like the whistled solo, very impressive. That’s the fun thing about the creative process; you never quite know where you are going to end up. But you certainly arrived on this one."
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.
