Golf, Guitars and Life

I had a feeling that this was bound to happen. While I was sure I had my moods and “flavors of the month”, I suspected that there were also some guitars that I just could not bond with. After several tries using several amps, I decided to sell Daisy, the Duesenberg Starplayer TV. On paper, […]

The afternoon got hot, and I left work pretty tired.  I went home and made a pizza with ingredients I bought from Trader Joe’s.  I walked over to the library and chose some DVDs to borrow, and then I went to the theatre to catch “Echo in the Canyon.”  The film was a documentary that […]
