These photos were taken at a party we had when I visited in 2003. All of the instruments being played were made by Ted except the bass – and I think he made some repairs to it, if I am not mistaken. Gatherings like this were frequent and remain among my fondest memories. If I want to feel happy I only have to remember occasions like this one. Ted is playing the “Double Amputee” and Steve Regimbal is playing the Manditar. Jack Beringer is playing rhythm guitar. I am pretending to play bass, and Uncle Paul, Ted’s brother, is on mandolin.
