Mr Google informs me that AGP (AG Processing Inc.) is an agribusiness located in Nebraska, and is engaged in the procuring, processing, and marketing of agricultural products., unfortunately not owned by me :-(

BUT !!, this AGP (A Good Person) is also in the processing business, I'm currently perfecting the process of turning large quantities of Beer into Urine  :-D

Love this guy!  I will definitely spend some time on YouTube with Knotlenny.  Thanks for the guidance and have a Great Day!  Time to get back out into my shop.  - Bob

Great!  I will check it out now.  This thing is addictive for sure.  :-)  - Bob

The playing is not coming along as fast as I would like it to however, my wood shop is producing sawdust again and that is a plus.  Ha!  I am fascinated by the Mississippi Blues sound on the CBG and look forward to picking up some skill with that soon.  I only recently started to learn the guitar (this past November) so it may be awhile.  - Bob

Hey Uncle John!  I am a retired USN Master Chief (did 22 years and retired 16 years ago) and finally found a "Hobby" that is more like an obsession.  Ha!  The Chamber Pot Orchestra sounds like a Great Name for a band.  :-)  Just started my 2nd box and am working on the neck now.  Will post when I'm finished.  - Bob

Thank you Uncle for your kind words! You were the center piece, the catalyst, the storyline that got everybody involved to participate in this one of a kind festival of virtuality. Your a man of imagination and creativity, but mostly your big heart and humor made this a huge success. Glad you all made it back safely! Proud to be a franchise owner of Uncle John’s Pawn Shop West Coast Branch!

Oklahoma 1936 License Plate #134-651      By John Bolton

I was made in late 1935 in the Oklahoma State Prison at Mc Alester. I was black with yellow letters. I was issued in Goodland County in 1936 and bolted on the rear of a gray and black 31' Ford coupe with a rumble seat. I couldn't see where we were going, but when the dust wasn't too bad, I could see where we'd been.

The Ford belonged to Gibson. He had a place in…

This Old Guitar  By Uncle John
I put my old Silvertone guitar up for sale and advertised it at a hundred dollars in the local Penny Saver. A young guy called about it then came to the house. He could play some. Not stuff I'd ever heard, but not bad stuff. He asked me, “Is there any wiggle room on the hundred? I'd have to…
