So Bentely the worlds best english cocker

SO wrer at the dog training club and theres 4 pheasant out there.

2 guitars traded for birds for Bentley ,what a dog ,quarters thrugh the field.

Finds and flushes,steady to wing and shot. Marks the dowened birdwith intensity.

Icall his name and like a shot he is off and the retrieve is a beautiful thing to see. 

Later at home in my shop an idea forms and I think how someone is going to get lucky.

Day cound't be  better.

interesting phone call

o I get a call from a friend at my dog training club. Seems I left one of my cbgs there {I had m 81yo artist friend paint it with a setter on point and a quail on it} . I was offered a pheasant hunt in exchange for the guitar.

Now mama didn' raise no fool. I accepted. So sometimes the cbg gods smile you in different ways. I think I mite just leave another one there,by mistake of course.

We ran into a problem with the string tree and tried different types of materials,when an old piece of scrap wood came to the rescue.Thanks to the quick thinking of my friend we had that puppy finished and playing.So many thanks to you ancEstry Chfristmas to you and yours
