I need to start playing the pipes more frequently to get back up to snuff. I found a band in my area and may look to join when they start meeting again. I do miss playing in a band.

Bagpipes?

It's on the list. Maybe I can at some point.
You have to be able to blow, finger, and squeeze all at the same time. Other than that, they're easy!

I agree. It is also a fine addition to beer.

I am listening to Phil Keaggy's instrumental acoustic stuff today. It has kept me near tears for the following reasons:

His playing is so dang beautiful.
I can't play that well. At. All.
I want a James Olson SJ so bad right now.

I just found my double bit axe! A Collins made in the USA(both head and handle) hardly used. I bought it new about 25 years ago when I was packing mules in the Sierra, for clearing any windfall blocking the trail. :chili:

Today I picked up a 1.75 bottle of Glenlivet and a bottle of 18 year old Glenfiddich. I will save the Glenfiddich for a special occasion.

Seven years ago I twisted my hips so bad I couldn't stand up. That required several chiropractor visits to straighten out. The last couple days I've been really feeling it again. Tonight I could barely stand up from practicing my guitar.

C'mon body! You're not 40 yet! You've got another 11 months before that happens!

I like peanut butter and I like tobacco. I buy the big 64 oz jars of peanut butter, eat it, wash the jars, make a new label, then fill it with new bulk tobacco. Not for long term cellar, but to use. Holds 12-14 oz and has a nice big neck.

Why do stores try to squeeze everyone in and out of the same entrance, increasing the chances for contact?

I'm perusing CPS while attending SS class this morning. I have it on mute, and video off, so hopefully no one can see me. Besides, no one else is on mute anyway, with all of the other distractions. Its ridiculous.

Let us know if you ever try a peanut butter aromatic blending experiment.
