Just got back from Tenn. tonight and had to post some pictures of the great time we had with GG Guy and his wife. It was really great to meet up with one of the guys you chat online with and find they are really as nice as you thought they would be. Mike, thanks again for the hospitality, and hope to see you if you make it down this way. The first pic is Mike and I with his collection and my Adamas, the second is my son with Mike's 97 collector, and the last is Mike singing his soon to be famous "dog fir coat" song. (I had to pry the Adamas away form him afterward!)

Looks like great fun. Guys, the next SE gather should be a blowout, right? A GA/TN rumble at the border. Wait, maybe GA, TN and FL will meet at the AL border? Whatever, let's just do it. I gotta hear me some Dog Fur Coat! Look at that great pic... Mike's really wailing it.

There's a man in my church who owns a chalet at Callaway Gardens in Pine Mtn, GA (middle GA). I bet he'd let us use it. I'm gonna start thinking.

I have a really nice celebrity I offered to trade for the Adamas. The Adamas is safely back in Florida. :(

The song is called "Puttin' On The Dog" Aaron Wilburn does it. My Pastor wants me to sing it Christmas Eve. :confused: You notice in the picture I've got my Mouth open,(As usual).

Jim could you email copies of the pictures?

If it wasn't such a busy time of year I would have loved to have a whole bunch of OFC'ers gather a trade a few licks. Maybe this spring or summer. We could find a centrally located spot.

i've seen aaron wilburn on a few gaither homecoming videos. funny guy!
looks like you folks had some good fun too.

hey, if you are looking for a centrally located spot for an OFC gathering, may i suggest hawaii? it's centrally located in the pacific ocean and also happens to be the most secluded spot in the world.

I could be talked into it, but it's only a short row for me.

Say, is there still a restaurant called The Texas Paliano Cafe on Oahu? I wrote a song about that place 20-some years ago.

no fillhixx. about 20-some years ago someone wrote a song about the place. the song flopped and so the restaurant went out of business soon thereafter. ;)

I'd go for the island get together in a heartbeat. Lanaki, when you send the airfare tickets, I'll need three. (first class, of course)

Paliano/paniolo...now I know why Hawaiians looked at me funny when I told the preamble and sang it.

I don't know them but the lodge is only 3.5 miles from Dollywood. Dollywood will be closed from December 30th 2006 till March 31st 2007.

I live north about 15 miles.

Let me know when you are coming. :cool:
