Hey Guys,
Many thanks for the kind words. Tim and I are blessed to have had you join us and some of the newbies will see this is a casual event and we limit the attendees to 50, but those who come are guitar appreciating family members when they leave.

I am organizing a few pictures. I'll try not to repeat any but I plan to send them to Dennis and he can muddle through them so we have a little variety here to share. To give credit to those who took pictures will be almost impossible but I can say they do come from McJammers. This year I took only a few pictures because I played the "grandma" role of Jeremy and Adrianne's daughter. (YAY!) I was pleased they hung around as long as they did.

You will see new faces in pictures. Sharky Dude ... our long time friend from early Florida guitar shows came for the event. What a pleasure it was to see him and his wife hanging around with us. Thank you to Clif and Antoinette for adding them to the fun! A Guitar for Vets rep was here from Findlay, Ohio. My childhood Sunday School friend was here and gone and here again for the first time. My local cousin was here. He has been in the shop before, but only this week has he discover we have a house we actually live in, too. Two couples who were related came. We celebrated a birthday of one lady and Bruce sang Happy birthday backwards to her. We like being different in our song celebrations. Rodger was able to bring his daughter as his side kick as his wife was unable to join him this time.

And .... Coldshot called. We were able to put the mic to the phone and we all heard the chat as a group. The best part is the phone was clear. Our Skypes were always on a delay and muffled. I think we will do calls more often. It was great to hear your voice, Mate!

Hang in there and let's see what we can see after I send out the pictures to Rodger and or Dennis.(Cigarfan)

Dadgummit. I even had some Orange Sauce Glaze with Ginger set aside to add to the felinicious foundation of that delectable delight. So sorry I missed out on it.

Actually, sad to have missed out on all of it, but it sounds like the usual outstanding McJam weekend was enjoyed by all, thanks to Mary and Tim.

I tried playing 'Black Water' for Julie on Friday evening, but she just sighed deeply, turned and walked away into other parts of the house. Everything pales considerably compared to Bruce.

You and Julie were missed Kurt. Your name was mentioned at least a dozen times... and, not always in anger.

Bruce couldn't bring himself to play Black Water without you guys.

We had quite a few picture takers so here I'm going to share what has come in so far.

First off ... the guitar players in no particular order.

We even had Australia on the phone. Coldshot calls every year and here a mic to the cell phone allows everyone to hear.

















And our hosts ... Tim and Mary

Maybe Mary would like me to do a Foodie machine demonstration next year.

More pics as they come in from the various photographers.

As I am looking over the pictures that are still coming in I'm already looking forward to next year's McJam.

The pictures make the joy more real to me as I can't be every place the cameras are. As I gave a tour there were activities coming and going and ... my heart is filled with thanks to all of you who helped set up, feed the group, clean up, play music, visited with our newbies and became a part of the fun. A special thank you to 14 years Rodger for helping to keep me set on schedule, 14 years of Bruce being the human juke box and I'll add Dennis to the special list for displaying a good supply of the pictures for y'all to see.

A big thank you to our kind newbies as one came and shared information about guitars for Vets, those of you who purchased guitars, wore the shirts and the lanyards faithfully, took interest and learned a little hooplah from Tim, my family who supplied the ice, food, stories and enjoyed the adventure he's heard about for the past few years.

I have to learn there will always be enough food as so many of you did bring special dishes and nobody went hungry. THANK YOU for making sure that food line was filled with more than enough. I forgot to pull out the key lime cheesecake on Friday and then we ate it Saturday but ....grrr... Tim had driven all the way some 50ish miles to Columbus earlier in the week so he could offer McJammers his favorite treat of White Castle cheesecakes on a stick and then .......... I forgot to pull them out of the freezer on Saturday. I was busy making sure Steve had his Watergate Salad my mom always made for him. For some reason he's not complaining about that mistake. If COVID keeps us home for any reason he will be quite content eating those all winter.



So ... stay in touch. Text me often. We are still building guitars. If you want to have some more fun be sure to meet see Dennis's Re-echo at the Artisan Guitar Show in Harrisburg, PA next April.
