Billy, thank you so very much for working on my old Emmons. It was a pleasure meeting you and spending a little time with you in your "laboratory".
A few forumites recommended calling you and I found all of them to be right. Great work from a great guy.
My dau.....wife enjoyed looking at all the pictures of you and the great steel players you know.
Jeff and Craig thanks for jumping in, it's nice to hear from you. I don't know where that derby came from????

Had the good fortune to meet Benny very early in my steel playing career and he helped me out a ton. He's one of the good ones!

Jack I'm still trying to figure out how we traded places so quickly! It seems like I showed you some things up on one day and the next day you were trying to teach me things that I still can't play!
John W. I heard that you had some problems and I sincerely hope all goes well. I tried to call you before and after we moved to Florida. If you get a chance, please call me. JW has been a great friend to me and my old Emmons for years.
Austin it was good to see you in S.C. Your playing has gone on to put you with the Big Boys. Keep it up.
Can you make it to the show in May? I'm going to try but not sure if Wayne Smith will be feeling up to it.
