Well, well, well...

Lotta fun but the Charlotte Blues Society folks must like what I did 'cause I won it... Now let's see how much cash they will come up to sponsor me to the IBC (International Blues Challenge) in Memphis in February...

Tired... Lotta stress and all... Met a lot of nice folks...

Like I said... Tired...

Well, one thing I can say is that people don't play that North Mississippi groove around these parts so it's different enough...

Best part about it is that this is going to open some doors to play some local festivals next year... One guy from the blues society told me he'd make a couple calls and get me in the lineups... That alone, is all I was hoping for... But now that I have won it maybe I oughtta take a shot at the IBC??? I donno...

This is almost enough to motivate me to come to Memphis in Feb, my ex, Don Hopkins won the Sydney Blues Challenge and will be competing there too, and I've been thinking about scraping together the money to get there. I'd love to hear you perform, so if the universe is good to me, I may be there to cheer you both on!

Gee, Bobert, you said earlier you hoped not to win, as you weren't looking forward to a trip to Memphis. Now you've won, so it's hard to know what to say.

Well, the important thing is that you did a good job and you wowed 'em. Congratulations on that.

You know, when someone has a happy and successful life, we say that they were born under a shining star. Sometimes I think you must have been born under a patchwork star, Bobert, because your life is so complicated. Know what I mean?

Fantastic. Congratulations.    Sounds like they recognize quality.

You sure were missed at the Getaway but maybe it was for a good cause.

Though we hope you're starting to make plans now to be there next year.   Don't know if we can stand 2 years without you.    After all, the Getaway this year has even been branded as "low key".    That's your fault (not trying to guilt-trip nobody or nuthin' like that--not much anyway.)

I feel bad for the guy who came in 2nd... He earns his living as a musician and is younger and I'm sure this would have helped his career... I don't necessarily want a career... I just like playing music and want to do a festival here and there... That's gonna happen as a result of this win...

Memphis??? I donno??? I mean, part of me says, "Hey, you ain't gonna get any more chances" and the other part says, "Who cares??? What if you did win the IBC??? You want to go on the road???"... The answer to the second question is "Hell no!!!"

No matter... It's done now...

I think there will be some YouTube but I'm not too sure how that all works... There was a real nice woman doing the recording and picture taking... She took a bunch of pics of me and showed 'um to me in her camera...

I think what really iced the competition was the Lowebow... No one had ever seen one or even heard of one... Then here's this ol' gray haired guy up there with a cigar-box with 2 broom handles for a neck plugged in and cookin'... The other part was that, like back in Virginia and in DC, people just don't play that North Mississippi groove so they are curious about it...

No matter...

It called the solo/duo, f-prince... That the format at the IBC... One or two doesn't matter 'cause it's all gonna be called solo/duo meaning that if I go to Memphis I can take a harmonica player with me or just play solo...

Make any sense???

3 or more is band class...

The Cigar Box page was put together by Ted Crocker for me... He's the guy who built my "Back Porch" geetar which ended up being a prototype for the guitars used in Danny Glover's mover, "The Honeydripper"...

4 strings, frog-p... One fat (.072ish) bass and three trebley ones (.011 to around .022, none wound), 3 hand wound pickups with one output jack for the bass and the 2 pickups for the trebley ones... Best sound is using a bass amp for the bass and a different amp for the others...

There are about a hundred of these that John Lowe has made and sold to folks... I'd say that most of them are hanging on folks walls... They look easy to play but it took me two solid weeks of fighting with it before the light cam on... I think it was a day or two away from becoming wall art... lol...
