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.

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
