I can admit that this is not a chat, so if I've exagerated I excuse me... but... there's always the freedom, for those who are not interested in other people's discussions, to quit reading... and try to offer something more intelligent. Anyway, beyond my jokes, we were talking about a 12 string guitar... aren't we here for that purpose?

Yes, I did see your Avalon...she's a Beauty, and I probably should have said so earlier!!

  I too agree that communication is what its about here, and I've "met" some Wonderful Folks via these forums.

Thank you. Ignore Mr. Williamson we shall.

I thought that one of  objects of this site was to allow people who had musical interests in common  to get to know one another and that's what Antonio and I have been doing with a little levity thrown in.

Did you see the photographs of my Avalon?

Bring also a beautiful red haired irish girl... or a dark haired selkie... who knows... maybe I'll marry for the third time! Eheheh... Ciao Alan.

Ho un buono dizionario! Anche per me un piacere. A proposito, dove abiti?


Comment by Antonio Cotichini on Wednesday

Don't worry, you speak italian better than many italians. I told you about that friend of mine who often comes in Ireland. He has some friends in a town not far from Belfast. A few years ago, when he was leaving to visit them, I recommended him to go to Downpatrick to visit the Lowden factory (he is a good guitarist) but when he come back he told me that he tried but the factory was closed for holydays. Too bad. Anyway, good luck with your guitar, your family and all. It's been a pleasure.

Yes, I live in Northern Ireland. The Avalon factory is about twenty minutes from my home. George Lowden's factory at Downpatrick is less than an hour away.

I regret that Millie's only sister has been married for forty years and is therefore unavailable.

I believe that Millie paid £1800 sterling, approximately  2340 Euros at the current exchange rates.

Mia moglie parla bene Italiano ma sono principiante e molto pigro.
