Felony Banjo

Ok, maybe not a felony, but it's my blog and I can sensationalize for the fun of it. At a family camp-out I was jamming with a family friend into the Quiet Time, entertaining our families. Ooo . . . criminals! We violated the Rules and Regulations of a federally owned campground. That's breaking a federal rule. A rule is almost a law, so this was almost a felony. What bugs me is that I tolerated loud boom boxes all day and that was legal. We play live music and we're shut down. Oh well. We'll be at it again at our next holiday camp-out.

As you sit there on the bench in federal lock-up, and the murderers and rapists ask you what you're in for, and you say, "Banjo pickin'", they will all move away from you to the other end of the bench.

John, do send us your "pokey" address so we can send you cakes and condolences!
Can't have you criminal types destroying the peace and quiet, ya know.

Great story. I always enjoy your journal entries, they are so "slice of life". My family recently got scolded for our loud laughter around the campfire at 10:30 PM.. Oops.

LOL! Just read Speck's post... Sorry to hear you got busted John, did they give you a ticket or just a warning? Marva

Whew! I'm glad there are at least two folks who have been around long enough to understand that joke. :) Let me go brush my gray hair and adjust my bifocals.

Marva, they didn't issue a ticket. We just had to shut it down. I'm sure if we challenged it or got lippy they'd write us up.
