As some of you may know I retired in 2017.My wife has wanted me to do something to occupy my free time, as if I have a lot of it. Well her wish came true as I am volunteering at a local urban winery. I'm working with a Master Winemaker crushing and pressing grapes, filling wine barrels and bottling fine wines! Learning a lot too! Yes the fox is in the hen house! Playing a little harp and have resurrected the Roland Handsonic drum. Hope to play a few tunes on it at the 2019 Bean.

My best regards to all of you!

Yes I am Bruce but only for relatively short periods of time! I'm not the greatest fan of Fine wines, I prefer to drink homemade fruit wines! Also known as beer drinking wines, a beer in one hand and a solo cup of homemade wine in the other.

I'm squirrel hunting a little, but that's about all. I play a tune now and then to put on youtube.
I'm with you Joe! I like that homemade fruit wine. That red raspberry wine you made one year was wonderful.

Glad you enjoyed the Raspberry wine Sarge. I've only lucked into sufficient quantities of Raspberries twice in my life to make wine out of. One of my FOE buddies knows of a wild patch of them so I'm hoping he'll let me pick some next year.

Haven't checked in for a while. Miss the old days of needing to check daily to keep up. Glad to hear everyone is doing fine. I'm busy getting my pool opened and running.  After closing it it kept losing water and now we have to open it and turn on the heater so a diver can go down and patch the leak. Anyone up for a swim?  Hope you all had a great veterans day.

One must acknowledge reality. Franklin County, Virginia claims to be the moonshine capital of the world. But, following the Folk Life Festival at the end of October, we met at friend David's for music, food, adult beverages, more food, more music and so on.  Among these experts, I produced a Crown Royal bottle of apple 'shine originating from a good Indianapolis friend.  My homies raved, raved about it! Compared it to the best ever made locally, tooo smooth, can you get more?  One enthralled expert offered me one large, $100, for the remaining half of the bottle.  

Yes, we have an expert among the Bean crowd!  Congrats Joe! Oh, no I did not sell it. We drank it...all.

Just got back from a week in Hong Kong and Shenzhen China. It was business, but had some good food!

Still playing bass, but decided to start playing harmonica again. Been practicing a little and getting the gear together. I think I'll haul that big old heavy Fender Blues Deluxe out the the local blues jam and have some fun. [Chris will want to add a smart a$% comment here about a Double Trouble amp ...]

Maybe Chris's Double Trouble will make an encore visit to the 2019 Bean! You just never know Jim!

Craig and I met Kenny for lunch in Indy a couple of weeks ago. It was great visiting with Ken and Sandy for the day.

Bruce, you did the right thing with that bottle! It's best shared amongst friends.

Sitting here enjoying my morning ritual, coffee and 1950 Perry Mason re-runs! Love seeing those old cars.

My best to all.

Ken, back in my substance abuse counseling days, I used biofeedback as a centering exercise.  Your music would be excellent for that therapy.

Good deal.  Had not thought about music in cancer therapy.  Biofeedback has been used by some in cancer treatment and recovery for decades.  Some think it is hokey. but I see the music as a important additive to medical treatments.

Sarge, a little creative editing there I see.
