My dad introduced me to him, when I was young. I always hated HEE HAW, but
there was not any stringed instrument that man couldn't pick up and MASTER
in a matter of hours. The music on Hee Haw was great, if you liked
"bluegrass style country". That same day I met Buck Owens for the first
time, and then later ended up working for him at KUZZ in Bakersfield 15
years later and then at KNIX in Phoenix after that. Life has circles,
that's why bridges should never be burned.

My Dad was a World Class Tenor Banjo (5 string) player. I used to love
sitting around after skiiing all nigh at "The River" (Colorado, for those of
you not from the Southwest) , or at Mission Bay in San Diego, or Snug Harbor
in Carlsbad, or Sand Point at Lake Havasu or Parker, AZ and having Dad play
his banjo while his best Friend Gary played the guitar, Bobby, another
ski-bum buddy of our family's played bass, and if Dan and Colleen were
there, dan would have a 5 piece drum kit and them jammin' all night long.

I remember setting my dad's old Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs records on 45,
even though they were 33 1/3 speed and Dad and Gary could play Foggy
Mountain Breakdown, and Dueling Banjos FASTER than the sped up record
without missing a note.(of course they had to use capos to keep the right
key and pitch with the speed change).

Dad also had a Gibson double necked 8 string lap steel (not a pussy-assed
pedal steel) that belonged to one of the "Sons of the Pioneers" and I at one
point owned a Martin tenor (4 string) guitar that was played on tour by
Richard "Rick" Dougherty with the Kingston Trio.

DID SOMEONE SAY BAKERSFIELD ?

You ever play lo-ball on the "Circle" by the truck stop. I had a funny
hand come down there . they played 1-2 n/l loball. Everyone had like 200
on the table . I was in the big blind . No one played but the SB made up
the one dollar. I had a draw to a rough 7. (the rule in 80-81 there was
that if you check a 7 ..your hand is dead). The SB drew 2 cards, and
looked at one and checkd ..
For those of you that dont know what that means . They look at the first
card , and they check hoping to make the 8 and catch you bluffing. (they
think they are trapping you).

Anyways , I look down and make the 7 , and a thought struck me .. what if
I bet so much that it looks like an obvious FOOLISH steal.

I bet the 195 or 196 I had into a 4 dollar pot.

Here comes the fun part.. he looks at me (they never look back to see if
they made it until they see whether you bet or not), and now he bears down
looking to see if he made it . Sure enough he made it and giggles , and
thinks he has just caught the worlds first TVSM.

He calls .. I show the 7 and he started shaking like a dog shitting razor
blades.

I weighed about 175 back then and looked about 14 years old . I was on the
road with a woman , and after all it was Bakersfield.

I never said a word for the next 30 minutes . A couple of the "old boy '
regulars started needling him by calling him "trapper", and I thought they
were going to get me killed.

He blew another 200 dollar buy in in the next 30 minutes and left.

I got broke there, a few days later, raising and drawing against pat
hands. never fiigured it out till it was too late , but I am thinking
maybe I had the worst of it !!

Great little place .. dont ever wanna go back

The woman I was with got drowned and broke in a game in a bar downtown ,
run by the guys who were cheating at THE PALMS, before it was shut down .
EVERY NIGHT THEY WOULD HAVE TO CLOSE , AND EVERY NIGHT .. THE "get even "
POT FOR EVERYONE ALMOST ALWAYS ENDED UP WITH SOMEONE GETTING DEALT A PAT
WHEEL OR 6-4.

I was in town a week and I knew, but most of the regulars didnt .
