Mornin' Unc!  We still have our health up here in MN.  I'm semi-retired again since last May.  Spent most of last Fall through December with my brother Rod.  He passed away on December 27.  Most of January was spent moping around feeling his loss.  Decided to get back to the business of living in February but it still hurts a lot.  Working on finishing off our lower level right now, also building a copy carver/duplicator thingy.  Haven't been to the CBN site for years now.  Just ran across your latest music video while perusing CBGittys news letter this morning...brought a smile!!!  ;-}  Take care old friend and hugs to Linda from Cindy and I.  Hope 2017 is a great year for you and yours!

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

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…
