Roy,

Good to hear from you again. Looking forward to reading about and hopefully seeing your progress! I’d love to learn how to make a fiddle!

Glad you’re back! I’ve been gone a while too. Have you been having problems posting pictures? I can’t upload them to photobucket from the modem at home…have to do it at work during lunchtime. Look forward to seeing that fiddle!
