Did I mention that Iíve been busy? Wish I could say that Iíve been busy working for world peace, writing the great American
novel or sheltering the homeless. Unfortunately, Iíve mostly been working to ensure that our family doesnít join the ranks
of the homeless. That and all of the countless mundane, day-to-day tasks that drive you crazy because you invest so much time
in the doing and ultimately feel that youíve accomplished nothing.
Not to say that itís all been tedium and drudgery. We all got up to the
lake last weekend and it
was a perfect summer weekend (which is to say, way
too short). I had an opportunity to experiment a bit with my wind
organ. Not too much wind, sadly, but the pipes gave out the occasional toot or moan when the wind gusted, so Iím encouraged.
This week one of my projects is downing a two-liter bottle of Sierra Mist. Iím not all that fond of it, but the bottle is
perfect (i.e. smooth-surfaced) and I donít have one that large yet. Iím hoping for a sort of basso voice. Weíll see.
For you treasure hunters, latest intelligence suggests that the gnome hasnít moved, but stay tuned. I plan to be up for
(hopefully) a long weekend over Bluegill Festival. And on a Bluegill Festival weekend anything can happen.
