Been pretty busy over the last few days - Number One Son is now home from Uni for the summer. He has found an interest in cooking, so is practicing on us. His first dish was Balti Butter Chicken with Naan Bread. Amazing, one of the best curries I have ever had, interestingly spicy but not too hot, creamy and rich while somehow being light and easy to eat. Looking forward to more!
Sunday was Fathers Day. Body Builder (our younger son) got me this card:
Inside he wrote "Everyone forgets the bass player!" What a cool kid!
In a supermarket I saw these:
The area of woodland that I have been watching has come on nicely this year. Last spring it was flat and desolate...
Isn't Nature wonderful?
Meanwhile, inspired by the band, I have returned to the Flying V bass with its 4 pickups. I have removed the old on/off switches in favour of giving each pickup its own volume control, allowing infinite mixing of tones.
Number One Son wanted to buy me something for Fathers Day, so I chose a new bridge for the bass:
Shiny! It is also much heavier than the old one, giving a better sound to the whole instrument.
One final thing - Shabunkin the fish died. Not sure what happened, one morning she/he was fine, later in the day she/he was dead. No sign of any injuries or anything, strange. I hear that this is something you have to accept with fish....
