Hmmm... Lots of news.
It's hard to know where to begin.
I think I'll start with, "Life is good".
Life is good.
I am married now, and very happy in that. Cathy is my Heart.
I have two new wonderful children to add to my already grown
ones. I am very happy with that, also. Selah and Lllah are
our daily inspiration, and their laughter fills our souls
My family and I are living in Jonesboro, AR now, and loving it.
Cathy is a professor here at ASU, and I am now doing
carpentry and remodeling both here and in Memphis.
Yes, I am still making the 70+ mile drive to Memphis to work
on the houses of friends and clients. I have also begun to
find remodeling jobs here in the Jonesboro area. I admit,
I'm a little tired of the long commute to work in Memphis,
and love it when my work keeps me near home, but, if it
weren't for my still working in Memphis, I think I'd hardly
ever get to see my friends there. I am still very happy to
be able to accept work in both areas.
Cathy and I are also in our second year of gradually
re-doing our entire house here in Jonesboro.
For carpentry, tile projects, kitchens, baths, home remodeling,
additions, and home repairs in or near Memphis or Jonesboro,

Musically, I recently had the pleasure of performing solo at the 6th
Annual Tyronza Stars & Stripes Festival in beautiful
downtown Tyronza, AR under the auspices of the Southern
Tenant Farmers Museum. http://stfm.astate.edu/
I am learning songs, and working on my own arrangements of
John Handcox songs. John Handcox was a blues and chant
styled union motivator during the early stages of the
Southern Tenant Farmers Union, which was founded in Tyronza,
AR in July of 1934. Its founders were a racially integrated
group of tenant farmers seeking some way to deal with the
harsh and unfair treatment and living conditions forced upon
them by many planters.
I will be working with the Museum on several other upcoming
projects, as well.
I'm still exploring, and stretching my knowledge of the guitar. I
practice at least some every day, and never fail to discover
new and exciting things on it each time I pick one up. I've
been playing both electric and acoustic lately. I'll always
love them both.
My other main musical instrument love is the steel guitar.
Not so much the pedal steel (though I am at present diddling
with that, as well), but the non-pedal, Console Steel,
Hawaiian Steel, or "electric table", as it is sometimes
called. I am currently playing a mid-fifties Carvin Double
8, and in the process of building a couple of new multineck
instruments. I live to slant that bar.
