My one regret is never having learned to play an instrument - and I possess all my Mum's certificates for her piano expertise. I was just too darned stubborn as a kid to pay attention when she tried to interest me - playing sport was much more me at the time! These canjos look real fun Barbs - look forward to video.Wink

A man walks into a pub with a steering wheel attatched to the front of his trousers.....
"Do you know you have you got a steering wheel attatched to your trousers" asks the barman...

"Oh I know" replied the man........."Its drivin' me nuts!"

eyes all wide, heels too high
but i'm singing a ha-a-appey song.
