1875-1885ish Buckbee Banjo

"I love these banjo restoration videos of yours. Each one reminds me that I should get my old banjo out of the closet and restring it. At the same time I kind of dread it because the last time I looked into restringing it, a music store guy told me…"

NatureJunkie commented on Chig's blog post I don't know if anyone out there will see this, but maybe those that do will find it interesting.
"Lord knows I hate having to defend Google. Their original motto was "Don't be evil," and now they are The Evil Giant. Trent Lapinski could have distilled all his ramblings about why LV failed in his one line, "It was mostly the…"

1876-1886 Buckbee banjo

"Baby's a dancer! She's beautiful. So is that banjo. For the inlay that you replaced, what material did you use, assuming that there's no antique ivory to match it with? Your videos are inspiring me to dig my five-string banjo out of…"

A A Farland

"When you first unwrapped that thing, oh my god, I was amazed that it hadn't been long buried in a landfill. I would never have guessed that an instrument in that condition could even be restored. What you did with it is astounding, Willie. You…"

The Egg

"I was just thinking about this video today when an Arizona friend was telling me about the wildlife in her backyard. I pointed her to it on Vimeo and I just watched it again myself. I really love this, even after all these years. It still feels new."

On mourning a public figure

Posted on January 1, 2018 at 11:00pm 4 Comments

It’s an odd thing to mourn the passing of a public figure. I’m not referring to the “saddened to learn of their passing” kind of sentiment, but the kicked-in-the-gut misery of grief that’s usually reserved for the loss of those we knew and loved. It seems somehow inappropriate to truly grieve for people we didn’t know—but knew of. There really isn’t a name for this variety of grief nor any social convention for comforting those experiencing it.

I’ve been deeply mourning the…


What I Miss About Having a Dying Dog

Posted on November 7, 2017 at 10:03pm 6 Comments

1) Never worrying that spoiling him rotten with all of his favorite treats will be bad for him.

2) Having someone to eat up all the cheese, cookies and ice cream in the house so that I won’t be tempted by them.

3) Being able to say to him every morning, “I love waking up to your sweet, kind, beautiful face.” Because every extra morning with him was such a gift.

4) Having a…

Homeward Through the Haze

Posted on October 13, 2017 at 10:35pm 2 Comments

I live 70 miles south of where the fires are blazing in Sonoma County this week. Today I drove to a hillside a mile away from my house and took pictures of the air. The air quality is rated as dangerous. I will not take Buddy for a walk in it and he has cabin fever. I do too, now that I think of it.…


Got to keep on moving.

I sprained my knee last week, the knee that doesn’t have any cartilage in it anymore and that no longer completely bends or completely straightens out. Seriously, devastatingly crunched it, my leg folding like a jackknife as I fell straight down on it.
It’s been hard to walk since then. I conserve all my steps, saving up…

Crack epidemic of the 20-Teens

Completely, utterly, addictively, excruciatingly delicious.

Yeah, that's right. I bought the "share" size and didn't share with anyone. Get your own, people, get your own.

If it can't be laughed at, it hasn't happened, ever.

If we can't laugh we'll drown in absurdities and socially acceptable small-talk requirements.

YIKES ! ...just read your blog on VH about the dolls. It makes me sad that if this was 30 years ago I'd assume it was some nice old grandma who makes dolls leaving presents to bring ? Serial killer. No doubt.
