Hello, everyone.
Here’s the art. . .


I normally don’t offer anything for sale directly from these newsletters, mainly because we like eBay’s auction format, and setting prices is hard. But these little folk art guitars that I’m making are the perfect candidate to give it a go. They would make a thoughtful gift to that music lover that’s hard to buy music for, or they could easily be converted into Christmas ornaments. I’ll even put a screw eye and ribbon on top upon request to make it Christmas tree ready.
The acoustic style guitars with the penny sound hole are $18 + $4.95 shipping. They come in black, red, and light brown (for that classic acoustic guitar look.) More info here. . .


The electric style guitars are modeled after a Les Paul. They are $25 + $4.95 shipping. They come in red. . .


. . .and in black. . .


All of the guitars come with a stand made from a bent fork. Fork styles vary depending on availability. As always, we combine shipping. We’ll ship as many guitars as you like in one order for a flat shipping rate of $4.95.
Just write to me to place an order: dylancurry@msn.com
Be sure to let me know which style you want and in which available color. They’re all made to order, but there’s still plenty of time to have it there by Christmas. You won’t be invoiced until your order is ready to ship.

PS I can’t leave without giving you some sort of family update. It just wouldn’t feel right.
Our daughter’s ipod finally gave up the ghost after years of service. Her friends can’t believe that she’s had the same one since middle school. Most of them replace theirs each night after dinner. So while she’s between ipods, she decided to get some blank tapes to dub CDs onto for her car’s stereo. I was quite amused at a modern day kid trying to figure out our old school technology.
“You mean I have to listen to the whole CD while it copies?”
“When it gets to the end of side 1, do I have to rewind side 2 to get to the beginning of it?”
“I have to hit play and record at the same time? That’s stupid. How would anyone know that?”

OOOOOOH BOY! Dylan, I didn't realize you have a blog, too! I ALWAYS go to Jo's! COOOOOL! And I WANT ONE, I WANT ONE! I will write to you in a sec. But I'm so happy that BOTH of you have blogs so now I can read what both of you have to say. Doesn't GET any better! NOTE: Good darned thing your daughter didn't have to be introduced to - gasp - EIGHT TRACKS! OMG! She would have had a meltdown. Giggle!
