Man, Lindy...  you're making me feel either like I was there...  or I gotta get there right now!

Slack:
Great story Lindy, Hemmerling's art is very appealing!  You better buy some before he hits it big.

Did you go across Lake Pontchatrain on the causeway?  Remarkable lake and a fascinating area (if you can take the heat in the summer).  Have you tried the fried pickles yet?

cheers,
slack

lindy:

Thanks Frank, hope you make it to PT long before you visit Ponchatoula.

Slack, I haven't been on the Causeway yet, no special reason, I just find it easier to go around the lake when I head up to delta country.

And yep, I've had a plate of deep-fried pickles, and deep-fried gator, and deep-fried trout, and deep-fried catfish, and deep-fried hush puppies, and chicken-fried steak since I moved here.  The only deep-fried thing that I couldn't bring myself to try was the deep-fried Twinkies at the King Biscuit Fest in Helena, Ark. last year.  After taking them out of the frier, the "cook" puts them in a styrofoam bowl, covers them with sweetened condensed milk, sticks a spoon in 'em and says "Here you go, darlin', y'all enjoy."  Wasn't something I wanted to put on top of a great piece of barbecue.

Question for you.  I got the notion to learn "Change Your Ways" this week, and I took out the tape of Jerry Rick's 2000 class that you dubbed for me.  But when he starts talking about tuning, there's a lot of people noise on the tape, so I'm still unsure if he taught it in dropped D or open G.  I figured out part of the main lick in dropped D but in an E-position, which didn't make sense to me.  Do you remember what it was?

Thanks!
Lindy

It is not the most interesting drive, but the expanse of water is impressive.? There is suppsoed to be a good dive/restaurant on the other side on the right (whcih we never made it to).

Ha!? No wonder the south leads the nation in overweight folks - amazing the stuff that they will deep fry.?

I think it was Open G - but I'll put a note in my pocket and check when I get home.
Amazing how noisy those classes can get.

cheers,
slack

Lindy, still have the note in my pocket - had to go to a B-day party last night
