The part of the church where the silliest things happen. Conversations that sound like they belong in the youth room will be moved here.

How bout a bottle and a tin of something aged and 2 1/2 books of Green Stamps?
Well, it's a stretch, but we might be able to get you no points on that speeding ticket.

Wait a minute, aren't you on the DA's task force? What the heck do you need me to do?

Saw the worship director's car at church when I drove by, so I stopped in and told him Sunday was my last day. He wasn't at all surprised.

Ooh, burn. Skip got out-pricked. :D

Glad you're out of there, buddy. The stories you've told me made me question that place entirely, not just the band.

It's really no worse than any other church. There are always a bunch trying to ruin for everyone else, a bunch of self-righteous morons, etc. It was - and is - a good place, but after a while you get tired of the same old stuff.

I'm glad you saw an opportunity and took it. I'm glad it didn't involve a lot of drama. Nicely done.

I've been seriously considering building one. I bought a cheap guitar a while ago to steal the tuners from. Mrs FredS has a nice stack of cigar boxes she bought at the cigar shop for various craft projects. That's as far as I've got though. Well, if you don't count watching dozens of videos and visiting CB Gitty.com a hundred times. They have some pretty need little amp kits too.

Indeed. SlowToke has mentioned interest in the past too. Don't know if he ever did anything with it though.

Hey Monty, did your son already know how to play? Has he enjoyed the GBG?

If you start a new thread I'll post a pic this evening. He plays it now and then. It's one of a few instruments he plays.
