SPOTLIGHT ON: TOBY BANJO
I tell this to lots of the kids that I meet and they say, "Ha ha. What kind of values and skills can you learn from being a member of Team USA Banjo?" They say this in a tone of voice that suggests that they think the answer must be "not much."
Brother, you can learn a lot from being a member of Team USA Banjo!
Here are some of the skills I have learned from being a member of Team USA Banjo: banjo strumming, banjo picking, putting strings on a banjo, lockpicking, tuning the banjo, safecracking, and open-mouth kissing.
Here are some of the values I have learned from being a member of Team USA Banjo: teamwork, togetherness, not ratting out your pals, trust, and banjo.
Ma Banjo says no man can really ever own anything, but at the same time, without really knowing it, I think Ma Banjo has shown us that every man can sort of own his own destiny.
How's that for "not much?" Kind of a lot, I think!
