    You did that my friend? That is amazing, do you still play the banjo...I would love to hear you play it! This poem was very nicely written Jack! You have brought a smile to my face...just knowing you played the banjo for a band is very awe inspiring! What a wonderful poem that I have read this evening! Awesome Work!!

    That is sooo Cool. I love folk singing. I loved Peter, Paul, and Mary in the US. Sang my son "Puff the Magic Dragon" all the time... Now sing it... to Dragon.... He thinks it's about him... That's Dragon for you... Must be a great memory for you.
