      And that video was 9 years ago, so he’s had 9 more years of playing under his belt since then. Heritage Guitars (used to be Gibson) in Kalamazoo *gave* him a guitar. Not sure if he’s a formal rep or an informal one by virtue of his making their instrument sound good 🙂

      I appreciate your enlightenment on hair color, robe color, and gift. I think they switched things up a little in the picture. I totally guessed and I guessed pretty well, but not all matched as they should be.

      1. That is what I read, but who really knows what the magi looked like. Your coloring was very good.

          Thanks Jim, I’m unhappy with a lot of the pictures in the 2 books I have for Christmas, so I found that out on the net last night. Good design makes the coloring look better 🙂
