the perfect christmas morning


Even Paul McCartney started somewhere.

This guy couldn’t believe his great good fortune, with a real electric guitar along with the use of his father’s microphone, stand and amplifier.

It certainly brought back memories of his father’s expression when he opened a Christmas gift to find a bass guitar.

We and his grandparents had combined our shopping funds in order to afford the best used bass guitar Banjo Man could find.  Son #1 was very, very surprised.

Every once in a while a Christmas dream comes true.

And the beat goes on…

    Those pictures are wonderful. John is certainly his father’s son. Even his calm expression reminds me of Ben.
