Jean-Marie van de Laar replied to Jody Stecher's discussion Notation anomalies in Morley's "Florida Cracker"
"Yep you've got what I meant. The b flat in the penultimate measure isn't that strange. Since the words direct you to go to the letter A. When you look at where the letter A stands that part also has a b flat in the key. If you would write…"

Jean-Marie van de Laar replied to Jody Stecher's discussion Notation anomalies in Morley's "Florida Cracker"
"I should have explained better.  You play from the letter A up to the letter B. So you only play the A part. The A part has 2 endings. Since the reference says no repeats take the second ending. That's 8 measures. From there you play C up…"

The topic of animals and the banjo is quite interesting, I once had a Cocker Spaniel who liked to sit with her head on my knee when I played the banjo and had a preference for certain banjo tunes - she would lick my fingers when I played 'Twinkletoes' for instance. 

Then I had a black Labrador who hated tenor banjos, especially when played in the Irish style - she once ripped my tenor banjo case open, during the night and chewed the resonator.

Have any other members any anecdotes about their pets and the banjo?
