    Default Old pic

    Most of my stuff from the first half of my life was destroyed in a flood several years ago. My friend Fritz sent me this recently. Fritz is sitting in the chair working on my bass, I'm threatening his life if he should fail. But check out what I'm holding, to my knowlage this is my only photo of me and the compound bow I once owned.

    Heck with the fish I'm worried about poor Fritz and whether he got the bass fixed in time.

    The only thing I ever managed to kill with that bow was carp. Not a weave Mohawk and dyed black, sides needed re-shaved in the pic. Fritz did get my bass repaired in a very timely manner.

    If I am not mistaken, back in "those" days there was a two bass guitarist limit per season, right???
