Uncle Ned and Aunt Wilma...We're on good hands, rest assured. A little pickin' and grinnin' this evening on the back porch and a great time.

A bit earlier Jack and I went to town and rescued Cody and Libby from the Save-a-lot late shopping spree and they followed us out to the Conrad's. Cody, bless his heart, sat in with the group in spite of all the milage they'd covered in the last couple of days.

Ned, you and your bride will be sorely missed this year but we'll include you in our thoughts and shenanigans.

Merry, merry and Happy, happy.

Bob

The Bussin'08 campsite and Party headquarters is now open!!!  We unlocked the gates briefly this afternoon, went to Sally and Ray's for a great Christmas dinner, then some great Pickin and Grinnin. 

Future jam sessions and practice sessions daily, maybe hourly in the Jam area.

i contributed to the guitar, banjo and madolin practice by singing a few songs.  after that, the instumentals increased lest i try again.  There are some very good players!!!

This is great and we are so happy to be here!!  Bussin 2008 will be THE place to be this week.

All the rest of you that are not here - Eat your heart out.  Just joking - Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Nick,

I just looked at Your 10 day forecast and this would have been a good year to have abandoned ship, so to speak... :P

Stay warm and we will catch up with you somewhere, someday....   8)
