I still have some of those beach balls Mark had bought for the back yard bingo game where Mickki won the Uke. The breeze carried them to local neighbor kids, but by the end of the day the balls were back in the Lone Cone ready for another adventure for another time.

We had newbies come and a few oldies returned this year. The music was a delight. The food was absolutely less clean up as things were prepared for the Covid rules. Some foods were pre-prepped box meals and the rest was created by superb cooks.

The new motel in town gave a 15% discount to anyone using the McKnight name. I have had no reports concerning that as of yet. So for those who stayed there inquiring minds want to know. Email or text me if there was anything I might need to address before next year.

Keep your shirts in a safe corner of your closets so you know where they are next year!

Again many thanks for Rodger helping me with the coordinating my schedules. Dennis - the pictures are great. (Thank you.)

Be sure to invite others to see these.

Page 3 - the picture of Tim, Adrianne, the baby and me. Notice I am holding the 2 necklaces.

To any interested party- I was sharing details during that time frame that I will give these 2 necklaces to the one who purchases the McKnight Aquarius guitar.

This is a perfect time for someone desiring to give an expensive gift to a loved one who is having a birthday to make a deal with Tim. A little twist here is that you can buy her (or him) two necklaces and you can get a free guitar.

Hey ... face it. I'm the marketeer. This is what I do. Buy 2 necklaces at quite a price and take home the Aquarius ... There ya go ... we're dealin'!

This isn't a nibble but could you describe the Aquarius guitar to those of us who couldn't come this year?

It’s our “Skeeter” body size, Honduras Mahogany back and double sides, Adirondack Red Spruce top. Design theme by Mary of Padauk and Olivewood inlays on the rosette, back, FB, and side sound port. The necklaces match the rosette and sound port. I’ll try to find a picture or two to post in the next few days.

Spoken like the true car dealer in me ...

"It's guaranteed to fit the hand of the man (or woman) who picks it up and it will surely make you smile a while."

Yes, Neil. I know ...you'd rather have Tim answer your questions.

I think it is such a pretty guitar. I don't look at it in an "Aquarius" type of fashion. It was designed to be rather a Flower child heart grabber. Trouble is, it grabs my own heart all too often.

The side sound port moon shape now helps to sooth the stress of the loss of a missed loved one. Why? We lived and talked together under the moon many times over again.

The star under the sound port has open arms and reaches out to hug me each time I look at it.

But Dennis, this is why I have you make an annual visit. I'd rather bask in the moment and listen to all of you play.
