Episode 137 - Don't Count Yer Chickens Before They Hatch


We all face plans which could fall apart before our very eyes. Sometimes as a result of our own actions and sometimes completely by chance. Sometimes a bit of both. Allow me to elaborate on my strategies for dealing with situations such as these.


I talk about being hired and fired in under 4 hours as a guitar player. I talk about coming within inches of slamming the car into a herd of wild hogs just this morning. I talk about my dashed plans for becoming a young quail farmer.


I talk about Del McCoury showing up in Nashville to play banjo for Bill Monroe--only to discover that Bill Keith had just arrived in town too! Stuff happens and you must learn to deal with it.


Thank you to my Patreon supporters. YOU are a huge part of making this happen. I do appreciate it!
