Dead Flowers

For Beerboy Anderson:
"Donny was a good bowler, and a good man. He was one of us. He was a man . Lord, you took him, as you took so many bright flowering young men at Khe Sanh, at Langdok, at Hill 364. These young men gave their lives. And so would Donny. Donny, who loved bowling. And so, Theodore Donald Karabotsos, in accordance with what we think your dying wishes might well have been, we commit your final mortal remains to the bosom of the Pacific Ocean, which you loved so well. Good night, sweet prince.'

I tried to play acoustic guitar as smoothly as that for over 40 years. I finally gave the Gibson to my grandson. He doesn't play it like that either but he does a damn sight better than I do.
I can sing and I can play but just not very well. The way I do it is not entertainment.
