Summer is definitely over and was it ever boring. Mostly due to my dental situation, which I haven’t really come right out and said. So I guess I will. Had my top teeth pulled out and had to wait three months to heal. As it is now, I am still waiting for the end result, which leaves me unable to eat a lot of things. I’ve regrettably lost some weight, but I am hoping the dentist will be done with me in the next few weeks and I can work on gaining that back.
So fall is here and it is getting cold, moving right along into an early winter I think, but that is just my opinion. Time to bake things. I am sure I have mentioned before that I spend a lot of time alone. Sometimes it is hard for me to keep myself busy. I admit I play some computer games to pass the time, but I don’t watch t.v., so I think it evens out as far as entertainment goes.
I recently regained possession of my guitars. This is a good thing as they are special to me. The first thing I did was call and leave a message for my old music teacher letting him know I had gotten them back. I even have a small collection of picks left here by the previous tenant. Must be some kind of sign.
I was talking to my sister-in-law through face book and she is playing her guitar and singing in a club now. I thought that was really cool. My music teacher, Mario, thinks I should practice up and play out with him. I think he is crazy, I am not that good. Not to mention the nerves I would feel playing in front of people.
What I did not get back was my tuner. I will have to go out and buy a new one, simply because the last time I tuned my guitar without one I broke a string. The time before that, Mario said it sounded like a squirrel tuned my guitar. It was horrible. The string breaking wasn’t all that thrilling either. A person could lose an eye that way!
One little thing Mario taught me about used guitar strings. If you save them and tie them onto a kite, they make a nice sound when you fly the kite. I haven’t actually done this myself yet, but I plan to.
