Nineteen years ago I was having a lump removed from my abdomen: that lump is now taller than me and can play several types of stringed instruments. Yes, it’s Daniel’s birthday – and to add to his collection of electric bass, electric guitar and ukulele, we have bought him a Spanish guitar. He is very pleased with it and no longer has to borrow his sister’s.
Nineteen is a very resonant number, I think. It’s not one of the significant birthdays like eighteen or twenty-one, but there’s the song about Vietnam veterans, and then there’s Mark’s online handle, nineteenthly (see https://lizardyoga.wordpress.com/why-nineteenthly/) and of course there’s the impossible score in the game of cribbage. So happy resonant birthday Daniel, and enjoy your resonant present.
LOL. Tonight we will be having pizza, courtesy of Holly. Thanks Holly!

when i was about 10, I wanted a set of drums for xmas. So obviously, I got a guitar instead. Lessons every saturday, in a dark dingy back room, with an elderly guy who chainsmoked. I think I had four lessons before pretending to go and spending money instead on 45 rpm vinyl singles……got found out eventually by my aunt but she never told mum…….I never did get the hang of guitar, just cant make my fingers do diferent things. Yet another failing of mine. oh dear.
So what? You’re an artist! I’ve never been able to draw
