Camping so close to the beach that you could hear the waves at night.
The beach was really beautiful and was never really crowded.
So a good time was had by all although I can now proudly announce that at 40 yrs old today, I am officially a load.
Training starts tomorrow.

TV Personality Billy Mays Died of Heart Attack in Sleep; Autopsy Shows Mays Used Cocaine Before Death
(AP) An autopsy shows that cocaine use contributed to the heart disease that suddenly killed boisterous TV pitchman Billy Mays in June, officials announced Friday.
These aren't the REAL Amish although they pretty much act the same way when they get mesmerized by bright lights, buzzing motors and colorful clothing.
The Amish are into large pretzels like this,
It's rumored that on the weekends and the entire community gets together and constructs them.
Here is a little video of the day. I wish it was better but it's not.

I was never picked last for a team.
I always had a date to the dance.
I always asked the "big" guy to leave the "little" guy alone and it happened.
I have always been asked "How'd you do that!"
and so on.....
I'm not bragging I am just stating my life to this point.
Why is it that I currently have some ability to re-enter my Blog Life ( I may get that tattooed across my belly) you know, write some/read some and someone who was kind enough to follow this little ole blog hasn't invited me to hers yet.
Namely The Dizzy Life of me.
Click the link.
That's what I get.
Wha'd up with that? (I don't know if that's how you spell it because I am horrible at Urban.)
It was my pleasure to interview Ed McMahon last year about one month before his monetary issues really became public.

This is my 1975 Honda cb750 K-5 although it also has parts from a Super Sport and a Honda 500.
I did a minor rebuild on the engine and painted it myself. You can't tell from the pictures but the paint is not that great. But for a first time it is a great way to learn.
Now I just have to adjust the carbs and set the timing and Va-Rooooom. I'll be speeding to an unemployment office near you.

After some muscle and sweat, it now looks like this;

And finally, the fruit and veggies are coming in.

Why. I guess I like torture but it is an easy way to see how I progress.
Last time I wrote of how I was trying to change my style of playing, so after a couple weeks of practice I will admit, I am like a baseball player trying to learn a new swing or a hockey forward trying to learn a new shot, it's uncomfortable but I'll see if I can push thru it. According to those in the know, I will improve.
This time I tried to do a variation on a theme. In other words, come up with a melody to fit the music, expand on that melody, stay in theme. I tried to do something a little more progressive than bluesy and failed an all counts.
For what it's worth, I am going to keep with the training. I figure I should give it an honest 6 months.
This time the light is better and for those who may care, the guitar is a 91 Fender American fitted wit a 59 reissue at the neck and a Jeff Beck stacked at the bridge. Unfortunately the amp is a piece of junk Peavy Trans-Tube so you cant really hear it.
No effects were used besides the gain on the amp.
Without a doubt. A garden.
Done reading? Good! Now if you are asking yourself "Just how can I be so sure that TBY would start a Garden of Hope West in your yard?" Let me tell you ladies and gentleman, the evidence is overwhelming.
