This Turned Out Nicely

But don't tell anyone what it's called if you are playing Irish on it.

That was my first thought, and my second thought was half/half guiness and beer

 

from other bits on wikpedia....

Just imagining an earnest American 'tina player visiting the land of his fathers for the first time. Tentatively, he sits down on the edge of a session, and begins to play quietly (unlikely I know, but stick with me on this one). After a while, he comes to the attention of one of the regulars. "Lovely wee box," he says, "What is it?"

Jesus, it doesn't get any better, does it? :lol:

 

 

I don't know, we always had Redbones and Blueticks growing up, at least for coonhunting. The herd dogs were always a much larger variety of types. I also know that the British mouse fancy has a black and tan variety appointed the same as the coonhound breed.

 

Kind of miss having the hounds, but with no where to hunt there is no reason to have them.

 

Nice box by the way, Bob.
