For What It's Worth (recorded at The National Vietnam War Museum)

"Thanks for sharing this with us.  That song came out during the time I was in Vietnam so I didn’t hear it until a year later.  Even though it was a protest song I liked the melody.  "

"AHAHA! I keep a series of photos and a log of (some of), the details of my builds. Well, most of them, anyway. I do get carried away with the chips flying sometimes and forget to take pics...  It really comes in handy sometimes."

The pussycaster was six years ago, and the cat bowl on this latest along with its box have been sitting in my garage waiting to be finished since then (you can't rush these things)

Glad I was able to provide inspiration Bob

Thanks for all the info.  Life got really busy for a while and I stopped paying much attention to this site.  What with the whole coronavirus thing, life has slowed down, and finances have just got to where I can kind of pick up where I left off.    My apologies for dropping out of contact.  I hope you and yours are all safe and sound!

Good to meet you yesterday at the Republic of TX CBG Festival. I started an album here: https://cigarboxnation.com/photo/albums/republic-of-tx-cigar-box-guitar-festival-11-2019

Since CBN only lets you upload 10 photos per day, It'll probably take me a few days to get all of them uploaded.
