Hey wyred, you're still around!  Jump back in here, dude!

All these harp camps sound good until they start talking about $500 or so, not including the cost of getting there.  Then I gotta back out.  Harp has almost turned into a pursuit of the affluent.  I said almost.  If you got a gift like Tinus, you can buy one $50 harp and with a lot of hard work, be set for life.

Good to hear from you Wyred!

Ha ha, I have to agree with Beelzebob.  Playing harmonica is in danger of becoming like  riding a Harley, something for rich old people.

Hey Terry...how are you man?  I was out in N.S. a couple years ago and got to play at Bearly's.  Tried looking you up before I went out there but had no luck.

I'm, doing fine, been a roller coaster life the last few years, I got healthy with the gym, and then I got melanoma and now I'm back in the gym, got all sorts of muscle, but it isn't helping my playing. Maybe Rolly Platt can help me at the camp.

you should check out the harp camp down in dunneville.

Yea Bob I always wanted to go to one, but like you say $500 then travel and hotel, meals yep you got to be trump to play harp. I jumped on this one because i can drive to it and it includes vegetables (which I don't eat). I'll try and find some peace and quiet to upload a recording again.

later

Cool.  It's great to hear from you again.

I lofted a prayer for you about that melanoma.
