It’s here!

My Banjo Hangout t-shirt! This is such an awesome deal, y’all. Annual membership is $20, which includes the t-shirt. Shipping, even to here, is free.

I have an idea he no more than breaks even. You can buy the shirt alone for $12, which is stupid cheap. Good heavy t-shirt and always a nice graphic.

I don’t hang out in the forums, but they have a terrific library of tab. After all this time, I basically own an entire wardrobe of banjo-themed t-shirts.

You’d be amazed how many times people say, “you don’t actually play the banjo, though, right?” Which is dog-whistle for, “but you have all your teeth and speak in complete sentences.”

Paddle faster! I hear banjo music!

We bout went off a windy hillside road near Prairie Grove Arkansas one time, because Foggy Mountain Breakdown was playing on the “tape” and my good buddy decided he had to drive as if he was in a movie and that was the sound track.

Somehow, I have always been confident that you do, in fact ‘play’ the banjo to the very furthest extent that such can be considered possible. You certainly speak in complete sentences but, well , NHS dentistry is…. legendary.

Seriously though, that IS a VERY cool T-shirt and I hope you don’t mind the teasing too much.

Naw, I don’t mind the teasing. And I have never been to an NHS dentist. We let accordion players take the real heat.

Check out their other merchandise. Particularly previous year’s shirts.

But has this shirt been tested for COVID? I mean, is it okay to wear? If I get one, should I quarantine it in a box for 2 weeks before I let it mingle with the other t-shirts?

Hmmm – an accordion player versus a banjo player?

Somehow that reminds me of the legendary fist fight between Goober from the Andy Of Mayberry Tv show and Gilligan of Gilligan’s Island about who was the better actor. Crazy as it sounds, it really happened.

By the way, just as a note between imaginary internet friends, saying that you have never been to a dentist isn’t helping the image of banjo players.

However, in your defense I will proffer the eleven-fingered accordion player.


I would have put this in the post above but Akismet, based on my experience, doesn’t like links to accordion players

Oops! All that and the link to the Goober/Gilligan fight story got forgotten.


Now I’ve used up my post quota here for the next two weeks😢

I’ve been to LOTS of dentists, just not an NHS one. I’ve had so much dentistry, my bridgework has given way to implants.

Hang on a minute. About accordians. One of my guilty pleasures used to be watching Big Joe’s Polka Show on RFD-TV. (I am not Polish and I can’t dance.) If it weren’t for the accordian player, the whole shebang might have fallen apart.

A cultural quirk of living where I do is the availably of four kinds of accordian music: Cajun, German, Tejano, and Polish. Occasionally the Cajun and the Tejano music sound so much alike that I have to wait until someone starts singing to know which it is. Cajuns call out and holler more than Tejanos. But it’s all fun to listen to.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
