    Yew bayit! My lady is in the intermediate bluegrass banjo category (yeah . . . I know . . . but last year she took 2nd in the same category), so I gotta be there.

    Randy, you gonna be at the main stage?

    Hope to see you there Eddie. I know that I haven't made it to Living Traditions for a while.

    We should try and have a quick Cafe meet up. I'll be wearing my Mandolin Cafe hat and toting an A5 of some variety.

    I'm heading out for business this week from VA and will be there to check out how mandolin players do it on the left coast. I'm sure I'll make you all look good...

    I had a great time, and enjoyed the company tremendously. Always good seeing all of you. Wish there are more big festivals like Topanga in Southern California so we can do this this morning often.
