And if you know how to play the banjo, you can borrow the innkeeper’s to take down to Basin Park to play, but you’ll have to also know how to tune it! Sandra had it with her on her sailboat when she spent 7 years single-handing her boat in the Pacific. Sadly, pulling up all her sails caused severe blisters (eventually callouses!) on her fingers and trying to strum that banjo was almost as painful as having a lobotomy!
