Thanks John

Picture was an after thought in the back of a tent on a cold day. It is in color, enlarged and framed in our living room. Probably as interesting as I will ever look. So thanks for the compliment. Been building instruments for over fifteen years, writing music, most of a gospel nature and performing around town and at various functions, including our church an others. At seventy one I am happy to keep doing and sharing this passion of mine.

1936 Oklahoma License Plate ~ 1 page fiction (short story)

Oklahoma 1936 License Plate #134-651      By John Bolton

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…
