Couple More Bunkhouse Boys

Here's a couple more very talented friends of mine, both excellent musicians and fellow members in good standing of the F.O.L.B. Dat be ol' NoBob Rob on the left ~ grand poubah of the Fraternal Order of Lost Bobbers and proprietor of the Perrydize Lodge & Wildlife Conservatory ... and dat be ol' Bill W. on the right ~ a plankslapper extraordinaire from down Franklin County way. Bill and his mo'better half, the lovely Mz Kathy, host the annual New Year's Day Bluegrass Jam & Chili Festival <---(click) always one the highlights on mah social calendar!

Whooooboy, it was plain to see dat gubmint fella was plum terrified ... so NoBob, him, he calmly lays down his tools, ambles over to the fence and yells at the top of his lungs:
