    Re: The Traveling Pick Sampler - Anyone Interested?

    Sorry I've been offline. There was a family emergency and I had to go out of town shortly after I received the package. I will mail it tomorrow if I can figure out who to send it to.

    Re: Musical Couch surfing?

    There are only 9 members of the Oregon group at the Café, so we are probably spread pretty thinly. I went to a class in Portland, and there were 10 people attending that, so there are a few mando...

    Re: 2nd Strap Button on an A?

    I suspect most people say that to avoid insulting the F style owners. I much prefer the A style in appearance, and hanging a strap on the scroll makes it look kinda like the player is hanging out...

  15. Re: Waiting for the truck...Guess when it comes and win a nice pr

    You seem to be out aways from town, so the truck will probably go there at the end of the route, so I'm guessing Feb 10 at 6:15.
