Howdy there friends and neighbors, its your old pal Banjo Billy with a long over due blog or as I like to call it “Letters from Home.” Well, I haven’t written anything since Christmas. I spent the first part of January in the cold north country of Illinois and then I made a detour over to Des Moines, Iowa to see an old friend of mine and then home to the Ozarks. Seems like this year Old Man Winter has really caused a lot of disruption once too many times to suit me. We’ve been hit with several Icelandic Blasts, one after another for almost a month, which of course has had a considerable impact on my day to day operations, so needless to say, I am still recovering. So, ever onward we go. The groundhog said that spring is coming early this year. So, of course we are depending on that, but for now we just hope that the worst part is over. Days are getting noticeably longer and optimism is finally on the rise.
I am finally just getting started on the last installment of my 500 Fiddle Tunes Project. The tune counter is beginning to move again toward my goal. I am hoping to wrap it up by summer time and and have the whole collection recorded, produced and ready fore sale.
That’s about all I know at present. Hope all is well in your world. Let the joys be many and the burden be light. The water is a boil, so join me in a cup of your favorite beverage! Better get back to it. Got to go. Billy
