Damn! That's cold! I'm not a religious person. I guess you could say music is my religion, and David is one of its high priests. Stealin' an axe from somebody like Dave is like stealin' a statue from a church. God should strike your ass down for that shit.

Whoever stole this will - hopefully - have a hard time selling it. Anything made by Gilchrist is rare bird indeed. He'll either have to sell it for almost nothing or hide it in his closet for many years.

Good news - It's been returned. When Grisman got home there was a box from UPS with the mandola inside. There was a note that said that someone had found it in the parking lot and decided to send it back. Whatever really happened I'm glad musician and instrument have been reunited.

The Fairies brought back my wallet today. Tire tracks on the outside, but everything intact. Small saving grace to a very bad week.

Sounds like fodder for a halfway decent folk song..

Oh the night they stola Grisma's mandola....

I saw Grisman out in Bozeman and the man began to cry
for they stole-a his mandola up the road in old Big Sky
He felt burned, and home returned, and then he loudly hollered "YES!"
Cause the axe was in a box delivered up by UPS

CH:

Oh the night they stole-a Grisman's Mandola
Well, he really felt the lack
Oh, he had a hole-a in his soul-a
til he got the sucker back

Well, the crook had been a schnook and so he couldn't sell the thing
And to deposit in his closet such a lovely mandoling
seemed so sad that he felt bad, in fact, as dirty as a hog...
So he placed it its case and sent it right on back to Dawg.

CH:

So the Moral of my storal is don't steal what isn't yours
You might end up in South Bend with Dawg's old Gilchrist in your drawers
If you covet--well what of it?--just don't let your conscience down
Or you'll have to pay the piper (or at least the man in Brown)

CH

Sorcha , if it had tyre tracks on it, then it's probably a good job you didn't have it on you at the time.
