O' Such Memories

Get Flash to see this player.

This tune really hits home, cause really one of my very, very fondest memories was when my mom and dad took me to Camp Meeker. It was one heck of a great time for a young kid about 11. Barn Dance, outdoor water skiing, open air theater, Negri's Italian dinner. Our little cabin. But what a crush I had on an 11 year old Joanne Faller. That I about as close I can get to spelling her name. She was indeed very pretty. What a thrill it was to take her to a the Barn Dance. Gad, puppy love. HOW STRONG IT IS!!!!

Hope you all can feel the roll of the car wheels a bit and maybe a memory of yourself as a kid takin a trip with your parents. . .

Just set up my tiny recording studio in the back of my wife and I's giant closet :) . Still trying to get all the kinks out.

Bill sings!
Not quite as sweet as Betsy Bill, but it's great to hear your voice on this - your vocal works really well. I really enjoy hearing songs about these sorts of personal recollections - also probably my favourite songs to write too. The slide sounds really cool too - breaking away from the Tiler tradition here Bill (both slide and singing on the one track).
I still remember the pangs of puppy love really well - I also remember going to "Lake Lodge" as an 11 year old. Horse riding, kayaking, archery, barn dances etc - what a load of fun. Thanks for reminding me.

Thanks Jig
I think the hardest part of this tune was setting it up in my wife and my closet. I had to buy a 50ft vga chord for a monitor. I had to bring it down to the first floor where my G5 is. So somehow i have to get the chord from dangling in front of the wall of our living room :^) I had problems with my mouse cause it just does not move around the way it should. It is a remote wireless (Kensington). I put in new batteries. I might have to buy a new one. I hate when it so often freezes:(

I have a wireless bluetooth keyboard that works. But when I brought down the keyboard and mouse. It took a while to get them to work right again with the original monitor.

I know it is a strange situation but if any body has any tips to make this situation run smoother I would appreciate it.

Gotta change my name...
...too many misconceptions. Everyone thinks it's "guitapick", with the accent on the 2nd syllable. Like a Boston accent (sigh).
It's actually supposed to have the accent on the 1st syllable...as in: go and "git a pick".
Earthshattering news, I know.
So happy to hear that you were on the Clearwater. Those days were so sweet. The sloop was a beacon of hope for many of us.

I live between the notes

A fun tune!
Also a great tune Bill. But, then, all fun tunes are great tunes, aren't they?

God bless,
