Into the Harvey County Bluegrass Inner Circle

        A new bluegrass family is in town and they found their way into the inner circle quick. If you serve up great ribs, million dollar pie and gallons of sweet tea you make bluegrass friends in friends in Harvey County in a hurry. Leonard sang the lead, Moose Dooley picked the five, “Cuz” was the dobro man, Phipsy played bass and Jim flat-picked the guitar. I wobbled around on the mandolin and sang baritone but no one complained. It was great to be out picking. Our social life might not be fancy, but I wouldn’t trade places with the richest Wall Street cat around.

        Y’all keep the music going.

    Just back from my first ever visit to New York and, having seen the ultra-rich but ultra-stressed people in and around Wall Street, I agree – you got the better deal. You do get great ribs in New York, though!

    What’s with the green shirts on Saturday thing?

        Place on the corner of 9th Avenue and West 45th Street. Ribs, collard greens, po’ boys, Abita Amber and all good things from the south. Good music in the background – no bluegrass, sadly, but Janis Joplin and 1960s Tamla Motown. Finest kind.
