I, sam, am pretty much the buckle on the belt of the state.  Are you in New jersey Stuart?

Hi Sam:

Not any more. I grew up in Point Pleasant (Manasquan River Delta country), but I live out here in Washington State now. Back in the late sixties and early seventies I think that there were all of six people south of the Raritan River that had ever heard of Country Blues or Old Time Music--me being one of them. There are always surprises, though. I once got an invite to Tex Logan's birthday party (Tex lived in Madison and worked at Bell Labs, I believe). I won't even begin to name those in attendance--the  Who's Who of Bluegrass--so you can imagine.

Anyway, it's great to hear you and Frankie keeping hope alive in the Garden State. BTW, where's home for you people?

I am actually north of the raritan river by about 300 yards (and 40 feet high for flood sakes) in a little section of bridgewater nestled between Manville and Somerville.

Hope is not dead in the Garden State!

Before:  Worry, worry, worry.
After:  Ain't worried no more.

If you can spare five minutes, I can pretty much guarantee you'll come out the other side smiling.

I'm sure someone's playing one somewhere.  Maybe Kim could play kazoo in a rack with the fiddle!

Also, Kim needs one of these to fit in with all that metal:

Or one of these.

Scratch, scratch, honk, honk, whiiiiiiiine!

THREE MUSICIANS STRIKEN DEAD ON STREET IN PRINCETON.
Local community relieved at loss of "rambunctious annoyance."

Princeton (AP) -  A local community is breathing a sigh of relief after lightning struck a group of street performers Sunday afternoon.  "There wasn't even a storm," said local resident Wally Wiggins, "I think God just was in the mood to smite something and they were in the right place at the right time, at least for Princeton residents."  Eyewitnesses report that they felt that the addition of a metal fiddle was a little too "Meddling" and the group was "just asking for it."
      "I mean, this isn't Memphis, this is an academic community," said Princeton Metaphysics professor Hubert Weinstein, "we like our music coming out of AM alarm clock radios, not squaky metal instruments."   Professor Weinstein went on to explain that he was unable to leave smallish apartment on Sundays between 11 and 1 because the group of musicians was such an annoyance.  Other buskers, including the local high school jazz ensemble and the Princeton Tiger String Band mummer group will be resuming their busking schedule now that the band has been silenced.  The group will likely not go down in history for anything of any significance.
       There have been no funeral arrangements, but a moment of silence has been scheduled in the burnt out crater where the group used to play on Sundays.

A big two thumbs up on your most recent offering. Well done!!

THREE MUSICIANS STRIKEN DEAD ON STREET IN PRINCETON. Local community relieved at loss of "rambunctious annoyance."

Actually, many of the PU faculty probably find y'all a welcome relief from what usually goes down in P town. Friends of mine who teach there often lament the local community's lack of character and/or soul.

A couple of years ago I stumbled across a book that I eventually got around to reading. (It's quite good.) It may seem a bit out of place, but it gives you an insight into a dimension that one usually doesn't associate with the faculty of an ivy league school. (Sorry if I ruffled your feathers again, Bill.)

Kim and Frankie ask the musical question, "Baby, How Can It Be?"

Terrific job, what a great song - tough to beat Bo Carter and lines like 'babe I'm doubtful in mind....."
