Dear Mr. MacKillop,

It is unfortunate that the banjo you have ordered has decided to elope and take up residence here in La Belle France. As you can see, it appears quite happy and comfortable here. Please feel free to visit occasionally. May we suggest the purchase of a Deering Goodtime? They are excellent and cost less than the train ticket required to visit. ;-)

Superb!  Your dog seems very content!

Eric, you were supposed to go along with the joke! I'm sure that Rob needs to suffer a bit more, especially because he has sidetracked me onto tenor/plectrum playing so much lately. ;-)


I recommend two or three more videos!! ;-)

Bien joué , éric .

Mr Mc Killop is right to wait a lil' more for his new banjo ' cause the airports in France & England are out of service because of the snow ; so the banjo would have been in transit anywhere with cold celsius degrees . Merry christmas to all , however

Marc Smith !

Yes i know  t'was a joke, , i have many jokes also in my bag but i don't want to effffffraid mr. macKillop until  he get his banjar, i know the consumption during the waiting it's very hard, and i am compatissant...

Pat & I wish a merry xristmas for all members, here , we are under the snow during 3 weeks long ... It's good to make music beside the stove...

Forget the banjo ... Eric, how much for your hands?  I want 'em!  :)


Merry Xmas all!

Well, upon further review count myself cruel and a humbug, esp. at Christmas. No doubt I shall be visited this long night by three ghosts: Tom Briggs, who shall take me back to Virginny to learn Laughter. Frank Converse, who shall teach me humility (and probably beat me for not playing more of his stuff). And Vess Ossman, who shall show me my future banjos hovering in the hell of the worlds postal services.

In the morning, I shall then wake and, leaning out my window throw dollar coins at any passing children. Happy Christmas! Got you! Happy Christmas, Ho, Ho, Ho! Don't duck, I can't hit you if you duck! Ho, Ho, Ho!

Happy Christmas to all my banjo friends all over the world!!!

Good job, Eric and Pat.  I love this tune.  One of the themes is from the old (older?) piece

40 Drops published for mandolin by the DeHarport Brothers of Denver, Colorado.  We

must play again together!  I hope the snow has subsided by now.

I've never heard it played better.
