You know Doc, we never quit pickin!!  Just don't do it as much any more.  I was doing some back up for a good band in Norfolk that brought in "Stars"...Opened for Ray Price, Boxcar Willie, TG Shepard, and even Tammy......But that was a while ago now....Still have the old ShoBud set up in the basement, and play it when I get the feelin!!...I'll be back in Magnolia next Labor Day, and I would love to see you again.   Did you build that steel for your Grandson?  Would love to hear him, and especially you play again...Either way, it's good to connect with old freinds..Hopoe to see you there...Dick.

Doc, Ben passed away some time ago, over a year or more.  The Marshfield show has moved to Conway, Mo and we played it a couple months ago.  Terry wil have a Gospel steel show in Conway perhaps in October.  I would love to have you come if you can.  I would enjoy talking more with you.

Hi Doc, I am happy to be your SGN friend.  Your name brings back a lot of memories.  Back in the late 50's Ben Jack and I sent our Fender steels up to you in Springfield and you added pedals on them.  Wow, those were some good days wearing out that Bud Isaacs pedal.  I got to meet you a couple years ago at the Marsfield show.  Then mention of your name brings back fond memories.
