My first work at home day was filled with frustration. The office preparation went well but I had multiple problems connecting a printer to two computers, we had Internet connection issues in the house (what, you mean I can't have four computers sucking on the DSL at once???) and yadda, yadda. Tomorrow should be better. Not sure how long it will last though. Our owner is being very generous by keeping senior staff on the payroll in a time negative cash flow, but our financial controller is nevertheless preparing for the doomsday scenario where we all get laid off, including him.
I finally got off my ass and enrolled for community solar. It's been on my to do list for a year.
Next, is to sew the holes in my ski sweater so I can do a wool load. My mom would be rolling in her grave, if she were in one, knowing that I have holes in my sweater. Somehow, she equated lack o' fashionable clothing with lack of SO. I fail to understand that as my ex owned a painting company. :p
So i had another Cyber mtg today with hospital board , nice to sit here all comfy in my skivvies 😉
So to get in the Proper mood beforehand i felt hell : Why not an Aerosmith hour ?? So me and Mama Kin went Walkin' Dis Way to find The Last Child before we started Dreamin' about some Sweet Emotion ........ya mon !
Switched axes and gave THIS Bad Boy a work out today
Life ain't a dress rehearsal: Spread enthusiasm , avoid negative nuts.
Saturday I cleaned and put away the skis for the season unless we get a big dump.
Might have to get the guitar out, haven't picked it up in a while. Have an old Gibson Accoustic w the F holes. Picked up in the 60s from a friend, had been varnished over and some kid drilled a hole in it to put a pick up in. Stickers all over it. I didn't really know what is was. Started playing in college, friend said to bring the old ax so he could look at it. Put some new strings on and proclaimed it sounded pretty good, frets worn but ok, straight neck. Short story. stripped off stickers and old varnish. Turned out it was a Gibson.
BAck in the days before the internet I sent pics of it to Gibson, found out it was a limited production L-50 made sometime during the early days of the 1940s. They said it was limited production due to the war. No idea what it would be worth in good condition but it has a unique sound to it according to good guitarists.
Might have to get it out again while things are on hold.
^ eotl wold love to see some before and after pics? I also broke out my old Ibanez acoustic. I had been wanting to start playing again for some time and was semi looking for a new one as the bridge is lifting some making the action a little rough, but non essential spending has gone the way of non essential work...
Working at home is rough, although the music is better at home I'm much more focused at work. I have about enough work for another week and a half or so then I'm not sure.
