    This batch ready for Branson

    Well I got this batch ready and headed to Branson yesterday. Going to put 9 in each mall for this week was the plan. Got 9 in the first Mall and then stopped by a place that I had been a month ago He grabbed 5 so only got 4 in the other Mall. Looked up a place that used to make Guitars and Carvings as they had said they would take an Organ on consignment and wanted to see if they were still interested. Well as it turned out they now have 2 stores and when I gave them my card for Frog Pond Guitars he got real interested in what I was doing. Asked if I had any with me. Told him I had one canjo with a bad spot on neck I could show him and one CBG I was taking home to do some work on because it buzzed to much. He had to see them so long story shot (yeah right Jay) he bought those on the spot and asked how many I had and I told him I had about 50 canjo neck waiting for cans. His response was I will take them all when can you get me more.
    So looks like I am going to get busy this summer.
