That sounds like fun and complicated.

Bumping this post as we are only a month away now. Dirty Ed messaged me and asked if it is still on - MOST DEFINITELY. I am looking forward to making it the best chordiestock yet!  If any chordians have firmed up plans, please let me know either by private message or posting here. Have had several requests for floor / tent space so the house is filling up, but there are plenty of hotel options in the area.

I've been sweating it a little, but finally got the word today that  I'm excused from jury duty March 17-27.  I'll get to spend St. Pat's Day with my chordie friends and Easter with my youngest daughter and her family!!  Time to put on some new strings and update my song repertoire.  I've got a couple new ones I've written since the last chordiestock.  Looking forward to seeing everyone again and enjoy Jeff's hospitality.

Will Miss Jenn be joining you Dirty Ed?  She classes the place up a good bit.

We'll have our 2 dogs with us this time and don't want to leave them in a motel room all day while we're at chordiestock, so we're stopping at my youngest daughter Alison's house first (Jen wants to spend as much time as she can with Mikey our youngest grandson).  She's staying there while I head over to Jeff's for the weekend.  Its only a couple hours drive away.

It's a shame that we'll miss her, but we're surely no competition for a new grand-baby.  I'm glad we'll get to catch up with you, though.

Mikey may not be considered "new" as he's three years old. (But I don't think the warranty has ran out yet.)  He is currently the youngest of our four grandchildren but will give up that honor in September when my son and his wife expect their first bundle of joy.

I'll let Jennifer know that you'll miss her.

Well.  Get your fanny to Washington then.  Heck, the Infamous Margarator may even fly up for a weekend like that.  He's not into fly fishing, but he is in to drinking on a boat.

I'm not all that tech savvy either but making a link is fairly easy.

Up there in the address bar where right now, you will see www.chordie/forum...... 

Go to any address bar, move your cursor over top of it. In this case it would be the address bar at your youtube video. Now click once on the right mouse button. The address bar will turn blue and a small box will open up with options in it. Move the cursor over "copy" and click on that. Now come back to chordie and start your post. Write a sentence or two as you did above. When you're ready to put the link in the post, click on the right mouse button again. The same box will open up only this time scroll down to the "paste" button and click that. Voila! You have a link.

Here is a direct link to your greeting.

Thank you Uncle Joe for the link advise. Putting up the Link was real good of you. How does  one stay logged in on this site as after every time I change from one page to another I have to log in again? I find just getting a message to stay takes a few attemps as I get logged out?  Modern technology and me dont work to well together. I will have a go today as I am on  a day of from work and see if I can get it to work.

Re: Chordiestock IV - save the date! - 3/17/16 - 3/20/16

At the airport...had a nice draft lager for brunch and considering a dessert. In 3 hours, I'll be in sunny Tampa Florida stripping layers and hoping Topdown doesn't mind stopping for a sip on the way to his house.  My tablet has been acting up, so I've brought three notebooks full of tunage. I wonder how many old frie ds I'll find in them and whether my fingers remember them.

Yeah. I'm getting dessert.

Re: Chordiestock IV - save the date! - 3/17/16 - 3/20/16

Arrived at my daughter's house in St. Cloud on Wednesday evening.  Called Topdown yesterday evening to see who had arrived and if everyone was guzzling green beer.  He said there were six so far and everyone was on the beach watching the sunset.

I'm heading out in about an hour and should arrive about the time everyone is waking up with hangovers.  I'm bringing two 12-fret slot-heads this year, my martin 000-16srgt and my Recording King ROS-16 that is set up with Nashville tuning, plus a sleeping bag and a jug of Devil's Cut bourbon.  I'll probably return to my daughter's house Sunday evening with sore fingers, a sore throat and a sore head. smile

What a great weekend filled with wonderful food and adult beverages, incredible music and some awesome musicians!  Played for about 8 hours Fri/Sat (5 pm til 1 am) and again for around 12 hours Sat/Sun. I'm glad Jeff has understanding neighbors. The plan was to play some more Sunday afternoon and evening but I got a phone call Sunday morning that my oldest daughter from Pensacola showed up at my youngest daughter's house Saturday evening and wanted to know where dad was hiding, so I left early Sunday so I could visit with her.

As usual, Topdown was a great host, cook and bartender.  I enjoyed BSing with Zurf about some of our river floating/fishing trips from previous years, seeing Topdawg and Keith again and meeting the rest of the "Cruise Brothers".  I was tired when I got to my daughter's house with sore fingers, a big smile and great memories.

P.S.  Topdawg can whip up some fantastic breakfast dishes.

The now infamous Roscoe Jones.  If there's an old country guy he doesn't know, it'll be the second we've found out about.  He's never played with Eddie Arnold, but other than him we haven't stumped him.
