    Like Jim K mentions, penned by good 'ol Pat Donohue.



    And since this is a mando forum, Pat has been playing around town quite a bit with fellow Guys Shoe Band alumni Richard Krien. Great mandolin player who maybe doesn't get the notice he deserves?

    Some humour--but then I am not relying on music for my income--it's hobby--but I feel or everybody who has even part of their income (if any) relying on music.

    I know some who fit that--they're doing okay so far.

    But this could have consequences down the road.

    So thanks for the laughs.
    Would it save you a lot of time if I just gave up and went mad now?
