To James,

Thats a bit odd to me because my last name is Harnar, supposedly of Dutch
extraction, our family name history is similar to yours and the name was
possibly changed when it was transcribed by the immigration folks.  My  dad's name
is James as well.  I also have battled a weight problem all  my life, my
brother and sister are both diabetic...maybe that's why i was so  much in awe of
your performance the time i saw you in Memphis.  You kinda  reminded me of ...
me; only you have talent.  My dad was very musical and  we came up with
harmonicas, trumpets, guitars, violins, mandolins, etc.,  around the house.  Seems a
bit weird (pronounced veird) to me.


hope only good things come your way from now on
