I think I *Know* 500,000 guitar players who are better than me ;-)
I've always been a musician "wannabe", in High School and college
years I was a drummer, now I attempt to make guitar-like sounds.
Generally I don't play in public out of deference to the delicate
sensibilities of any real musicians around. I keep telling myself that
if I could just make more time to practice...
Back in the 80s I sang at church with a beautiful redhead who was a
great singer and picker. She headed off to Nashville to make her
fortune, but was back in a couple of months.
"Dick," she said, "I'm good, but there are two thousand waitresses in
Nashville that are better than me." We were glad to have her back
singing with us on Sunday morning.
Heh. I can appreciate that. My kids wondered why I thought getting a Boston
pencil sharpener at a garage sale was such a big deal. Way better than
anything else. Even electric. You have *control* with these babies. Quickly
take down the dull or broken (or new) point, then back off the pressure on
the pencil and get a nice fine point.
No, they're not. They're just as crappy as the plastic ones. One of the
biggest problems they all have is they only have one cutter instead of two.
I feel your pain, brother. I sharpen pencils on my belt sander.
Cool gloat. You suck!

The fellow from whom I bought this house some years ago left just such a
one here when he moved out, nailed to the door jamb in what is now my
shop, what with the automobiles having been suitibly evicted.
Best bit of handyman work he did on the place. I understand, however,
that he is one heck of an accountant.
The wife and I have a deal going...I don't try to buy her scrapbook stuff
and she doesn't buy tools. ;-) I pulled the trigger a week or so ago when
Amazon offered the Jet Mini Lathe for $175 shipped, so I told the little
woman that was my Christmas gift. She responded by buying $100 of paper.
For today, she gave me "The New Best Recipe" from the folks at Cook's
6" X 169" belt to be exactual. Here's a picture of one the
Mine is the same down to the horse anna half single phase
motor. Condition of mine is a wee bit less than Louis' but
it's still plug 'n play.
Cha? I've been hunting for one for the past two years. For
now it sits in the shop of a friend in Omaha. I just need
to set aside a couple of days for the "out 'n back".
Allegedly (from the catalog pages/circa 1980) it's 450ish
lbs. but I think that's crated. I'm figuring 350ish lbs.
once it's all set up.
Currently it resides at a friends shop in Omaha (it was
bought at auction in central Neb.) He reports good things.
Another owner (via the OWWM) also says nice things about the
Me? I'm tickled, just that I have to figure out how to get
it from there to here without it costing me the entire
purchase price all over again.
UA100, who knows now how the dog who chased cars all his
life feels after one day catching one...
