Gasport.....I have a guess from Hepcat's picture that he may be a musician too. That's you on guitar, me on bass and Hep on______.  Hep, am I right? You a treble maker too?   Bud


Well I took accordion classes for 2 1/2 years, and I dream of being a great blues harp player like Slim Harpo or Little Walter....

Hepcat---I used to own an acoustic bass guitar that belonged to the bass player for Scruffy the Cat. I bought it off him. Saw them a couple of times too, back in Boston.

Very cool! Ole Scruffy could play, that's for sure.

I'll practice up with my blues harp though and then right out of nowhere you'll be hearing me hailed on the radio as the second coming of Sonny Boy Williamson, you'll see!

I had the big green bug. Pull a string, and he goes scrabbling across the floor. Over the years, a piece on his head broke off--a horn, maybe? Whatever the case, I sold him on eBay a few years back for some big bucks!

Hamilton stuff is really cool! I'm looking for one of the reddish cardboard caves. One went alittle too high on e-bay awhile back. I am not positive on the history, but Remco did issue the Hamilton's Invader vehicles under a different line of toys first. Science vehicles of some type.    Bud

Catching Buddy's generous impulses at just the right time is like trying to film Bigfoot. Either Bigfoot is there and the camera isn't, or the camera is ready and Bigfoot doesn't show. Either way, you know you're going home empty-handed. :D
