"That style of counting came from Boogsie Sharpe. The traditional count was done with an iron and the count was a straight four count. Anyone who have been around for some time can chime in.

Hilary boy, ah forget to tell yuh. Lorna who is Annette's godmother passed on 2 weeks after her 77th birthday in March. God rest her soul. She was also my godmother in addition to being my aunt, so it was rough.
Hey, Carlyle here. How yuh doin man? How is Annette? Has she improved? Give my regards to all the others whenever you are in touch. I called Timmy but ah just can't seem to hook up with the guy. He is swift.
Peace and Love to you and de family, bro. And, warmest regards about your musical endeavours.
Hi Hilary, remember Sun Valley from Point Fortin when you arrange Break Dance in 1985,so what's new with you these days? the last time I saw you after that was in NY in 1986, please send me a line so we can keep in touch again, I will be in NY this summer. Bye. by the way are you still playing the Bass.
Hilary, I am sorry to hear about Annette. I remember the name but no face. Same for the others. Only you bigger guys and Brian I recall as clear as day. Sorry about Mammy Ann also. Keep up the pan music. It has a quality of its own. I called Timmy. Boy, dat man nearly collapse. So, I plan to hail him out again and meet up with him. I sent you my email address previously, so feel free to get in touch. And, give my regards to all. I can vaguely remember one of the girls had gotten married aND WAS LIVING IN dIEGO mARTIN, BUT NAMES ARE A PROBLEM AT THIS TIME. Anyway ,one love . Carlyle.
Carlyle, you was more than a cousin to us boy....you was are a brother to me...I didn't know it was you...I am so glad to hear from you..I think the last time I saw you was 1985 when I was in Trinidad for carnival....Boy we dealing with this thing again.... Annette has cancer and she kept it from us...She called this morning and ask me when I was comming to see her....So I am packing up the family and going to New York a eight hour drive tonight. It dosen't look good. You know I think Lorna is Annette godmother....Mum passed away on December 12, 2000. Babsie is in New York doing well. I have been playing in church and doing some little jazz things. You could check some of it out by googling Hilary Borneo. i have a CD Smooth Caribbean Jazz, and I am getting ready to start working on another CD. I will stay in touch...
Hey, what's up? My sympathies about Brian. I think he is the one I taught at Belmont Intermediate School in the early 70's. I will call on Timmy. In the 70's also, when I gave up my Barataria apartment, I organized with the owner for him to get it. But, I have not seen him since then. So seeing him again go be nice. How is everyone? What about your mum and Babsie?
Nah, I ent playin no pan these days, but surely I'll meet up with dem guys and will give them your regards. So, what's been happening with you man?
My grandmother and your mother were very close, so quite regularly, I used to come to your home to deliver clothes that she would have washed and ironed for you all. You all always treated me like family, so whenever I came, I would spend the day with you, Timmy, Selwyn, your eldest sister, I think her name was Babsie. The others were small at the time. Those days were really nice and they are treasured in my mind to this day. So that is why I am happy to be talking with you. I have not forgotten. It was through you that I came to know Robert Greenidge and always talk about the evening around 1967 when you both asked me to come go up the hill with you and I refused. I eventually went as a 6 pan player in 1990, and always called your name. I even became a good friend of a very short guy who played double tenor with you. Seems as though everyone up there respected you as a master player. I used to enjoy listening to them. Anyway, keep in touch, man.
