Hi all,

Oh yes . . . I'm fine - busy but fine. At the moment the gracious and 
charming Beverly and I are moving from our present digs to a new place 
(well, new to us anyway) - and my days are kept busy packing junk into boxes 
in preparation for the actual event.

Moving is bad news and good news. The bad news is that it is a pain in the 
rear and the good news is that one has an opportunity to get rid of years of 
accumulated unneeded and unwanted junk. We've made several trips to the 
goodwill thrift stores and to the local dump. We've also unloaded stuff on 
the grandkids.

I appreciate your kind words on my washboarding and can only say that with 
role models such as Stephen Joseph (r.i.p.) Bob Raggio and Ralf Reynolds 
it's hard to go too far astray.

Also remember that Lu Watters and Turk Murphy were also washboard players. I 
think they also played trumpet and trombone respectively.

As the "Million Man Washboard Band" motto proclaims: Washboards Uber Alles!

Warmest regards,

Bill "Thimbles" Gunter
