HOME it's green
REALLY NOT HAPPY NEWS
Shiloh is very ill. The prospects look very dim and no matter what once again not cheap...it is going to be a very difficult decision for Ruth.
What can I say? I feel like writing a very heart felt lullaby...that would make even the wretched feel hope...
Okay, at last I have almost got my other website in order, well, uh huh. marginally, but it is up and running so to speak...
...and what the hell, we will see if anything happens like me getting back to work and out of the house.
So... if there is any body out there looking at this blog of mine...hello...are you there? And you know about a school district or even a teacher who would dig what I do...PLEASE, BE KIND AND LET ME KNOW, not because i'm starving, but just because i'd like to get back to doing something that seems worthwhile...
We got back from Truth or Consequences after a four day visit. It was 70 plus degrees when we left and 39 degrees at home, but it still is good to be in our own house, our own bed...
I've spent the last week reviving my old persona of "Chalk-Talk Mc Draw" with the idea to start touring schools again...you can see what so far is on that web site at
...it will be another week or two before I get all the tabs and links to all the pages...
Ruth and I took Rowan and Geno out to THE INDIA HOUSE last night for a belated birthday meal for Rowan, who is 33 and expecting June 15 to be three of them...they will have a beauty for sure...
...as for me, I am busy this week resurrecting my old CHALK-TALK performance art piece, so I can start touring schools again, as well as getting prepared for my April 9th gig doing a center piece for a fund raising dinner for the Jewish Families Association at the Albuquerque Museum of Fine Art.
Jan. 4 This is exactly what Molly once looked like...the first day she came into my life...January 1969
Me and Molly Boulder, 1969
HOME SWEET HOME
This is exactly what Molly looked like the first day I
as for the guitar project...
Molly is completelysanded down
also has her new saddle/bridge
thingme glued in place...I have yet
to re-string her so I am a little nervous
aout the whole thing...will she sound
just the same?
...if nothing else to put right this year, a main
project is to fix the old case that used to house
Molly Gibson, and put Molly back to looking a bit
more like she was at one time...
she is even getting a new bridge finally
and that was the one thing I wanted
replaced when a half-rate dishonest guitar
repair guy worked on her in 1982, took off
(I believe for his own purposes)her genuine
tortoise shell pick guard and put a crumby
varnish on it that cracked to a zillion
fractures within a month...and if I ever see
him again it will be too soon...
NEW YEARS DAY IN OUR VALLEY
