Another nutritious meal

He just cracks me up the way he says butter.
Anyway as you see I have no artwork. Well, I do have lots of pears I have been painting getting ready to film "Pear-ology" but after you paint 50 of them and post most of them they start looking just alike. So I thought I would spare you the pear boredom.

Here's a news flash...
I am starting (restarting) a new venture which will be fun I think. (I hope)
I used to play guitar when I was younger and when I was 13 I had a rummage sale in front of my daddy's store to raise money for this very expensive Gibson classical guitar I wanted. I paid $150 for it 45 years ago so at today's prices that would probably be over $1000 now. I am just guessing on that one but back then is was a nice guitar.

I have agreed to lead some singing at our church with the little ones and I decided I would get out the old Gibson and get it restrung and give it a go. Our son, Zach, the" lawyer by day and rock star by night" said he would help me. I can play just basic little tunes on the guitar so hopefully this will turn out to be fun and not a disaster. Here is the Gibson.

It will be interesting to see if my old skills will come back. I will have to practice up on what I played back then..."If I had a Hammer", "Lemon Tree", " Hang Down your Head Tom Dooley".
You remember those, right?  :)))

Ok, I am off to Chip's Music Store with the 'ole girl and see if she can some back to life.

I wish you well with learning the guitar again. I do remember those songs, very well in fact.

Music can bring add to doing your art..as it's a "quicker" creative endeavor! At least that is what I have found!
