Some recent advertising from Deering Banjos, marketing their "TenBrooks" model, mistakenly referred to the M&T match race as a Kentucky Derby. #Ever alert for an opportunity, I sent them a message offering to take a free top-end banjo in exchange for keeping mum (please: "extortion" is such an ugly term . . .) but they were aware of the error and had already revised the ad.
Just as well, I already have a Stelling and a Gibson sitting in the corner, wondering why they see so little playing time since I picked up the mando. #-- #Paul
He joyously felt himself idling, an unreflective mood in which water was water, sky was sky, breeze was breeze. He knew it couldn't last. -- Thomas McGuane, "Nothing but Blue Skies"
