Thanks y'all for the encouragement. I think I needed that. This house-husband gig (my wife is still working) leaves me missing the people I used to work with.
Villan, I'm sorry, I don't know what Skiffle means. Please define that. I'm in an area that is mostly country so I know I'll have to learn some of that, which I had successfully avoided all these years. Oh well, three chords and one tempo, I bought a truck, no gunrack yet. I have a dog kennel ( came with the house ) but no dog. I can say the dog left me and kill two birds with one stone.
