It’s still cool out AGP. I fire the Webber grill with wood to relax and warm up. And one has to eat. :*)

"Ditto Unc's Smokin' comment", I still haven't worked out if the smokes coming from a campfire, or your hot Mouth Bowing   ;-)

I love “power to the Blood”, Buffiy’s new album. She’s awesome. And beautiful. Thanks for the good words Gents. Happy Mother’s Day.

This is the reason my friends don’t invite me bow hunting anymore! Buffys mouth bow was made from a softwood branch, I love the way she would bend it to get that awesome tone!

IF you lay it on your right cheek , you can sing behind it just like Buffy Saint Marie ! Nice one Dave ! Rootsy !

One thought, I quit due to ridicule. Gonna make one in the next day or two 'cuz I'm older and don't give a damn what those boring folks think. Ha! (grins maniacly)

 Saw one of these as a child and made one. Played it for a little while. Wish I'd have kept after it. Simplicity - My favorite kind of genius. Thank you for this, Dave!

Doing pretty good on that, Dave.   Smoking!   I want a duet with you and Buffie Saint Marie.  I always liked her.  Gees.  She must be around 80 now.   Momma says, "Don't talk with your mouth full."  

A brimming bow full of goodness.  Seems like these would have been good hobo inster munts.
