Thank you, Chilly! (Leo “Schnooks” Madigow.)

May the electric avenue you are rocking down take you higher! I’m mangling Eddie Grant here, for some reason this springs to mind…
Chilly: And you can’t get sued because ‘Madigow’ (unlike Magidow) is an entirely made-up name!
Greetings Vanilla G, Dubious G and Marni, Nice poem — and that must be an electric cigar box guitar – with 3 strings. Do you use open tuning E-G-E? Or maybe it is just an acoustic 3 string. Oh, yes, I see the glass slide and the finger picks up in the corner of the picture. Blues thing going on.
W.G. Wow, redaction always grabs instant interest. Like banned books.
Hi, Catalina. Since the other DEA agent’s name never appears, I simply wrote ‘Redacted’ under the blackout.
