Hi friends, had enough snow yet??  Ready for Summer to come around??  

Warmer weather's not too far away……only 4, 5, maybe 6 months to go before it warms up and stops snowing.  Yikes!! 

"Summer time…..and the living is easy"………

(What, were you expecting Winter Wonderland??)


So….how ‘bout them Pats??  10-2, but I am concerned.  They haven’t been able to score at will, like in past years.  

I know…..Capt. Obvious.  

I would like to see them at least try to get the rookie’s involved in the passing scheme.  If they don’t throw to them, they’ll never learn.


Celtics and Bruins are doing great.  Good seasons so far, but a long way to go.  Sox are resting.


Got some fun Christmas and Holiday concerts coming up later this month.  Hope you can join us for a gig or two.


And in case you still listen to CD’s, and don’t yet have the Be-Bop Guitars discs, I’ve got plenty of them.  Go to my web site to see purchase details.  And you can also get us on online platforms.


And if you can’t join us, have a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.


Thanks, Johnny B!!!!!     www.johnbaboian.com     www.bebopguitars.com
