Bob I've tried sending a personal message and posting to the original thread. I still want to buy a copy of your banjo book. Please email me details at jdwhitney@mmm.com.

Anyone else ever hear back from Bob?

Jon W.

I left several messages about that book on the thread where he mentioned it, but have yet to hear anything from him! I may try the e-mail approach, but it seeems to me if he had wanted to reply to us he could have done so by now.

Ooops -- I posted that message, then lost track of the thread. I apologize. I'll get you a book -- gratis -- as soon as I can find your address. I often stay away from Mudcat for a week or more at a time, and, if a thread falls "out" in that time, I don't see that replies were posted. E-mail would have been better, I think. Did I include my e-mail address in the posting? It'd be like me not to, of course!

Hey, Bob: What I want is a copy of your Master's Thesis. Is there any chance I could get one? I saw it referred to in, what was it, Robert Cantwell'sWhen We Were Good?

I found him, I found him!!!

It truly is a small world. Songbob and I were passing messages back and forth trying to determine when I could come pick up a copy of the Banjo book. We have discovered that we live fairly close to one another.

I get of work and rush to my son's little league game. It is the Mighty Takoma Park Hammers against the Veritable Takoma Park Voice (8 and 9 year olds). We take the field, the the other team sends out the first batter. I'm the Referee. I check if the first base coach is ready. I check if the third base coach is ready. I look closely. ITS SONGBOB fufilling his full time duties as DAD and coach of the Voice!

I now know he has been answering a higher calling of swinging bats, foul balls, and the highs and lows of little leaguers. So give him time and I'm sure he will get back to us.

By the way. The Takoma Voice massacred us. Bob's coaching has really paid off since they had the best fielding we have seen to date and could hit too.

"the best fielding we have seen to date" - that wouldn't be Rick Fielding would it? Can't help it, I love bad puns.

Anyway, Bob, the check's in the mail.

Actually Bob was the best "Voice coach" I have seen to date. :-)

Some clarification is in order.

Babe Ruth League: I'm an assistant coach -- Jim Naughton, who pitched, is the official one, and mainly responsible for the great fielding (no, the other great Fielding) of the Takoma Voice squad (a nickname the kids rejected, so few of them being folkies, sad to say). In particular, he's responsible for the little guy, Ben, his son, who made most of the good plays you saw. In our last game, Ben made an unassisted double play that would have been a triple play if there hadn't already been an out.

Oldies in Boston: I'm in favor of 'em, but don't have the job of playing 'em.

Banjo books: I've, I hope, responded to all the 'Catters who have either left posts here or have e-mailed me, and I'm ready to mail the first one today. If you've either posted here or e-mailed me, and haven't heard from me, write directly to me at

rjclayton@aol.com

and I'll get back to you post-haste (several thoughts occur to me concerning this phrase, by the way -- see below).

Master's Thesis: I'll see how many copies I have, Sandy, and send you one as soon as I ascertain that I'm not accidentally sending you my last one (it was produced in hard copy only, and doesn't exist in electronic form, though I may turn part -- the tabs of traditional players' styles -- of it into either scans or electronic tabs, if I can find the time).

Concerning "post-haste:" It occurs to me that now, in the era of e-mail, post-haste may finally be returning to its original meaning, which is "fast as the post(al service)," from the days of twice-a-day mail deliveries, etc.

In newsgroup parlance, it could also be a short way of saying "post in haste, get flamed in liesure."

Well, gotta go!

Bob Clayton
