Hi and thanks for your prayers!

I erased the video, I got hate mail already ...so fast!!!

 I didn't mean to imply I wanted someone to buy me a new car!...I was trying to say I expect God to work a supernatural miracle, because that was scripture says, that he wants to work in our lives, HE will solve our problems ...that could be thru a mechanic or a friend or some kind of unbelievable story or work in a random act of kindness.

 I forget that the world was full no people who don't like the topic of God.

anyways, I was real sad this morning but he Holy Sprint got me out of bed and filled me up with so much faith that I KNOW the problem will get solved.... I know it will somehow!

John God Bless you!

Hi John 

Thanks for your comments on the two latest builds.

I noticed you made  some comments a while ago  which I did not respond to,sorry for that.For some reason all my pictures reset to the "do not follow" setting so I'm not getting emails when folks comment.Being a dinosaur ain't got a clue how to fix that.

Hey John, I just had a youtube comment on the video I did with the diddley you built a while back asking if you took commissions.  Thought that was nice and suggested they contact you here. Just wanted to give you a heads up and pass along a nice comment.

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…
