A few of us have been hosting an open mic / accoustic jam session once a month at our local VFW Club.  This is me last weekend having a good time "entertaining the former troops" at the Club Canteen.  A lot of fun and everybody seemed to enjoy the music.

Re: Chordie Family Photo Album

Thanks for the comments folks!  Zurf, I check in to see what everybody is doing, but haven't been posting much.  I keep pretty good tabs on all of you, but have been busy as I play a lot of golf; I am a Trustee at our local VFW;  we bought a motor home, built a barn to put it in and then it is my beloved OSU Buckeyes Football season and now my sons and I go to the OSU Basketball games.  Helped brother in law as he also built a barn and am still working on completing the "man cave."  Between my "fun" and looking out after my mother and sometimes my grandkids and life, I am one pretty busy guy.  I do make time to strum the old Blueridge frequently and listen in on Pete's latest recording.  I have been trying to figure out how I could get to Chordiestock to hear Amy sing and all of you guys play, but current plans are to go west  to watch the Buckeyes in either the Rose Bowl or national championship if they are sooooo lucky to get there.  I then have my annual trip to South Carolina the first week of February with a bunch of buddy's for golfing!   I believe life is short and I am doing my best to live as much of it as I can while I can.

Re: Chordie Family Photo Album

Good to hear that your still alive and kicking Jim.  Nice pic of that Blueridge but who's that ugly guy sittin' on the stool?

I hope that's an old pic, I can't imagine anyone from the Buckeye state wearing blue this week.

Re: Chordie Family Photo Album

Dirty Ed, my ole buddy Ken from down Ross County way!  That picture was actually last week!  Anything even remotely maize or blueish got moved to the other closet for this week.  That ugly guy on the stool is just my big fat but.  The prettiest thing in the picture is a buddy of mines Bose system that he brings and hooks up for our playing.  It is an awesome sound system.  I always thought the Bose stuff was just an advertising gimmick until I actually heard and am now a believer.  Hope all is well with you!

Yeah, those Bose systems are schweeeet!  The NSAI songwriters group I used to hang out with in Cincinnati had a L1 system with the bass module.  We used it for "in-the-rounds" and it was awesome.

I thought I had a pic of myself on here but I don't see it. Here's a recent one from an open mike.

I recently got my 8yo great-grandson a uke. He seems to have taken to it quite well. His mom was impressed enough to get a case and tuner for him. She said of this picture;"He says it's his serious look. Nate and his new case with tuner. He says he's a serious band player now. Hence the look." I told him;"Tell him to smile. Don't need to look grouchy to be serious. BTW Nice case. We need to jam."

Re: Chordie Family Photo Album

Good shots klbrackin.  I like the 'serious face.'  That sketch in your avatar is a terrific likeness now that we can see you in a photo.  Great job to whoever sketched it.

Re: Chordie Family Photo Album

THis is probably the last time I played in front of strangers.  1997 (or98) at the FUMC Taft TX. Country Christmas.  Film was grainy but I fixed it the best I could.

Yes that is the look of heavy concentration (Oh god dont let me fall out of place w/ the better players! lololol)  The guy on stand up was the music director. He is one of the perpeptually happy people and fun to be around.  We would play the informal service on Sunday mornings (bet that surprises a few ppl lol  )
