Wow Uncle. That was great. You don’t miss your water, till the well runs dry. I’ve been trying Nation every now and then with nothin there. Tonight she came back! Remember, we need you even. Though you don’t need us. Boy, I was jonesn for this. I guess I have a habit for Nation and all you guys. I even started dusting and tuning my guitars. You did Hank proud here. Great harpin, nice ratty guitar. Like an old friend. Thanks Unc.

Thanks, AGP.  We are looking forward to a new place and adventures.

Ha, Jim.  Yup, Harlan County, Kentucky is the more famous place.  Coal mine country down there.  A bit warmer too.

Gracias, Rodrigo. Me gusto.

Great song!

Comment by Jim Morris on February 7, 2019 at 4:40pm

Oh yeah, I'm sure you know the song You'll Never Leave Harlan but of course that Harlan is in Kaintuck.

Ahhh...the White Owl is going to a good guy! Sounds great on this one. Maybe a new home for you but hopefully same ol' Unc!

Never thought you would part with the "White Owl" or move from "Harlan", but fully understand the reasons why, hopefully the new home will have a lot more room with plenty of CBG storage area and nice big workshop for building them, "Happy Trails Pardner"  :-)

Thanks, Nancy. The white owl is going to Rob Ingram down in Missouri.
