I was hoping to hear that the event involvin Bob's banjo was where to 
old gag originated -

i.e. banjo player leaves banjo in back seat of unlocked car.
Comes back hours later. Finds two banjos in back seat.

Glad to hear Bob's banjo was recovered. A mate, Dave Hines had 2 banjos 
stolen from the trunk of his car when having a meal before playing at 
the Victorian Jazz Club about a year ago. The banjos have not surfaced 
yet. Dave leads the Hot B'Hines Jazz Band from St Arnaud, Vic.
