Wow, Stephen Tyler was having a bad hair day!
Had long hair once back in the 70's, had it permed.
No, I won't download a photo, some mistakes should not be seen. :)

OK, Christmas Cookie dough is in the fridge, will start
making them tomorrow afternoon. Have to bake another
cake for another party for tomorrow night first.
Will have to figure out a way to get you and Angie,
and Shep and Swampy some of those Austrian Nut Cookies
one of these years. They don't travel well in the mail.
You would have to eat them with a spoon when they got there. :(

Time to go horizontal, hope you are feeling better!

Slow down, you crazy child.
Take the phone off the hook and disappear for a while.
It's all right you can afford to lose a day or two.

(for only $.99)

His beard is actually slightly longer than 'Snakes!

The prior track and this one...remember calling the bass player that I was playing weekends with at the time and who is still a really close friend and telling him...man, these two songs that I just heard on a late night radio show for new artists are perfect for you. They were. Although, if I'd seen how goofy these guys look I might have reconsidered...

We love you too sweetness! M'lady send hugs! Seasons Greetings from the both of us!

Yes, Shep. Pain pills are worthless. 'Specially since they preclude the appropriate application of rum. Some days I'd like to have a medic following me around with an offer of a morphine injection though!

Thanks for the offer of the loan of the club. I know how special it is to you. All okay though. Just need to stop listening to so much head bangin stuff!

Thanks Briar!
Hung the feeder from the big maple by the deck where we see lots of them every morning. Maybe they'll get a clue?

Goofy,
Yeah, music finds a way...even with a washpan and bailing wire.

Hoping to get a new blog up tomorrow seeing as how the count is getting pretty high. M'lady feasting on shrimp scampi at the moment. She's smiling. Guess I done good.

Beauty and guitars are in the eye or ear of the beholder or Segovia could have coaxed a song from a cardboard box, a broom stick and bailing wire and a McPherson in my hands is a joke. I'd love a 5 in MaP. Got to play one once 3 years ago. Hint if you fells are feeling really stupid. Rather generous.

Reading back a ways I see Arthur Itis has made your acquaintance. A more irascible old fart you'll never meet -- gets grumpy and acts up for the dangedest reason sometimes. Come to think of it, he'll act up for no reason at all if you ignore him.

Quoting RobDaHood from my blog:
Bought Angie a feeder today for the little guys.
Getting ready to hang it.

I hope the little guys come to entertain you. Be patient, though. When I first put up a thistle sock, I had no takers for a couple of weeks. Then, one day when a bird was waiting in line for the sunflower seeds, he stopped to rest on the sock. And discovered food. Duh! The term "bird brain" does have a basis in reality.

I'm a lot better now. Yeah, I could go to the doc again and after a few thousand dollars they'd tell me I'm getting arthritis, I have an old fractured vertebrae that acts up when the pressure drops, and I'm just generally wearing out. LOL


800mg Motrin 3xday for 2 weeks....and no more or you'll feel your kidneys burning.

Men my age have to be careful with Ibuprofen.
Not good for the heart with grandpas.

Pain pills are useless for what ails ya.

The magic of modern medical technology - 2 ADR in my cervical spine & I feel bionic! Great! No neck pain unless I really over do it... still some nerves acting out, but the good doctor had to drill out space to give them freedom and he said it could take up to a year for them to settle down & possibly never completely. But my neck is full of titanium and turns with out pain, so I am happy!

Hope you feel better.

Tell Angie hi!

Merry Christmas!

Actually, it's a free country for the most part, so everyone has the right to an opinion...actually, the only thing that's free anymore is an opinion.

Good (late) morning guys!
Been having some problems with compressed nerves the last few days. Haven't been sleeping well. Think I've been spending too much time at this desk, so gonna stay away from it for most of the day.

Beautiful day outside so I'm gonna do some stuff outdoors and try to get the joints loosened up.

Have a really great day!
Will check in later.

Oddds and ends:

Gurus say neat little system to begin heading towards Lake M from the western plains. Back side finally drops white stuff on the Windy City and aims at KOG. So Halo has snow, KOG looks to maybe get some and RTL continues to look skyward and sees raindrops but is secretly longing for a dusting to hide the white worms.

So a little ditty to accompany 50 KT winds off the lake, if the band leader sounds and looks a little like der bingle, well they are brothers, the drummer is a look-a-like for WD and towards the end there is an unusual acoustic bass sound.

Shep,
I think you are like me.
I like all that fret noise, fingers sliding, and acoustic harmonics. That's why this will always be one of my favorites.

Enjoy.



Now we're talking.
Mention my name next time you see her, would ya. :)))

She's a player, for sure.

You have to spend a ton of money on a classical to get one that plays and sounds any better than an Ovation. IMHO.

Dire Straits apparently agrees with me. The Eagles use the high dollar ones. :)

My 89 Master Classical is by far my favorite blues picker.
They don't make them anymore, but their new one similar to it will set you back around 3Gs.
I got mine from a guy that didn't know what he had for $150.

Wow, sounds like Pottery is having fun or at the least
he is being well fed while he is there.

33*F in Macon this morning, no snow yet.

Sorry about the car troubles, bad timing for sure.
I mean time of day, not plugs or wires. :)

Busy day ahead, family starts arriving this weekend.
Non stop until Christmas Day. Love it though!

Hey Pottery!
Good to hear from you. I see you are making the best of a cold and damp situation. Don't worry about overdoing it on the food. I'm sure you'll work it off when you return home and find that "the list" has grown exponentially!
Have fun. Love to the lady and the kids.

Greetings !
Cold, foggy, rain coming later, whatnot and stuff.
Tried to quote "that's why God invented grandfathers" from Snake. But this computer is strange. Plus, I'm stuck in the 'new and improved website' and I still think it's boo !

Strange and Peculiar times, innit ? sigh....

Anyway, today's Adventures are about to begin.
And they start with a heap of sausages and end with dinner at somewhere and include lunch with friends.
A sort of Snakeymon day....... Gastronomic Overdo. :):))

Me? I'm loving it !

Hey, sorry for the post and run last night.
Didn't see your comment 'Snake.

Yeah...I remember those recitals.
Does southern mashed potatoes mean it's made from potatoes grown in the south or that they are mashed in the south? Perhaps you take them to the south side of the kitchen before the mashing? I really think you need to elaborate on this.

I do know that you don't mind preparing them yourself because then you can sneak in some extra butter & stuff.


Anyway, about yesterday...
Last day at work for Angie Until Jan. One of the two busiest days of the year for her. Starts the day by calling all the instructors who don't have their grades in. At 9 they begin the process of "rolling grades". Then they have to do all the other end of term stuff before they can leave. Naturally yesterday was the day that a server chose to die in the afternoon after having crashed a few times during the day.

Naturally yesterday was the day her car chose to die on the way home. Don't know what it was yet but I suspect bad fuel. Went up and got it started. Seemed to run okay but parked it and left it. Will deal with it later today. If it gives me any trouble she might be getting a car for Christmas. That doesn't really fit in the plan right now either. In fact...all plans are on hold until the idiot politicians in D.C. get their act together.

Marvin,
Yeah, some good music in his repertoire, even after all these years.

OK, 6 days and a wake up until Christmas.
I'm going to need stronger coffee. :)

Had the whole day and evening planned and then
daughter called, she forgot to tell us that the
little Princess had a Balet Recital tonight.

Well, we certainly couldn't miss that!
Just getting home, was really cute too.
Christmas cookies tomorrow.

Also found out that Grandpa is responsible for the
18 lb turkey, southern mashed potatoes, and the gravy
for Christmas Day Dinner. No problem, its in the
freezer already. :)

What time is it? Why, look at that, its time for bed.

Id like to see her a little more aggressive on the thumb stroke. Maybe too much hand lotion? :))
A little crisper would be nice.

I'd like to here her play the same thing on silk and steel. I don't use them, but they do serve some styles best, IMHO

Snake gets up at 0445 hrs, checks the house,
everything seems to be in order, wonder what the hell
woke me up, makes the coffee, checks the garage, nope,
all secure there also, checks the weather, nope, no
storms with thunder anywhere around, stops in to check
on the Ark, there it is, its that dam esp thing again.
Think I'll try wearing ear plugs when I go to sleep. :)

Evening Rob:
"Having to explain how life sucks, but there are still things worth saving is hard."
I just put up Bob Marley - good advice there!
I happen to have just two daughters too. Youngest turned 38 last Friday.
They don't ask for advice much anymore but I doubt I had everything covered. There is more to tell.
One facet is obviously that we do not need nor want to pass on a pessimistic attitude to the next generation - they need our encouragement.

Song playing on repeat in my head last night at 2 am as I lay staring at the ceiling, trying to fall asleep:

"2 am and I'm still awake writing this song,
if I get it all down on paper its no longer
inside of me, threatening the life it belongs to..."




No one can find the rewind button now, just cradle your head in your hands and breathe.
Just breathe.
