The weekend!


I am Home Alone this weekend. Well not quite. I am Home Alone with the kids.


My wife is off to visit her dad for the weekend, leaving me to deal with the ravening hordes at home. She won't be back until some time Monday, so I booked the day off so I can see them off, do the dog and make sure the house isn't too much of a bomb site for when the Lady of the House returns.


The kids are a pretty good bunch, really, so long as I keep them supplied with food and drink they are happy to amuse themselves most of the time.


The plan is to fend off the kids long enough for me to get the router going on the V-Bass, making the holes the right size for the pickups. Then I can do the wiring, make sure it all works and do a temporary "not-very-pretty-but functional" job on it so I can play it and see if anything needs tweaking before I do the final work of permanently attaching the switches, nobs, pickups and, last but not least, the shiny metal plate on the front to hide the holes and wires and make it look mean!


Think Phil Lynott's guitar, but V-shaped:


Hey, he stole my strap!

If all goes to plan I will be posting a vblog of myself playing the V in its "not-very-pretty-but functional" form on Tuesday!


That is if all goes to plan...


If not, I will probably be posting a vblog of myself ranting about what has gone wrong...


Wish me luck!

I didn't know who Phil Lynott was! Had to look him up on Google to find out he was in Thin Lizzy. I of course am anxiously awaiting the debut of Chief Rock Chef in concert! I just hope TZ doesn't toss her panties on stage!

Hope your weekend goes well with the kids. Have fun!
