One of my brothers was in the Navy. He let us know it sounded so much better to his sisters that it was for him. Go figure!

I hope for good weather, too. When our kids were little they rode their bikes in the house on rainy days. Guess that won't suffice for you.

I can't wait to see what else you'll have sitting around to play this year.
Hmm. That delightful little guitar, the "Cigar," would now be in my possession, Neil. I'm sorry to say I'm already on the road and didn't bring it along for this weekend's McJam; I'll be sure to do so at next year's McJam. It is a splendid guitar, and easily among my top two or three guitars Tim has built.

Had no idea about the navy. Or bike riding. Or cruises and crud (sorry 'bout the latter!). Hope you're feeling better; looking forward to seeing you and everyone else this weekend in Greater Metropolitan Morral!

Well, a tray of peanut butter cookies are baked, but a few lady helpers are unable to attend this year so we will wing it and make do.

Rodger and I are working on the schedule.

A few new faces will be in the crowd so we will consider orientation a worthy option so those guys are not left out.

Please note I will be sending a brief e-mail later today to 2018 McJammers only.

See ya Friday.

Mary,

We had some bad storms blow through here last night. How did greater Morral fare? Are the roads clear? Is the Lone Cone still standing?

I just left the house and all was in order. The place is looking great.

HI Neil,

The winds might come later this evening, but Columbus typically gets the blunt end of the storms and we linger in rains. So far today I don't think there was rain. Adrianne and I spent our day in Marion getting food purchased for those who will be joining us.

Many thanks to Dennis for coming along early and helping with tables, chairs, guitars and bringing door prizes. Wow. What a great beginning!
