Sunday




A grand Fall day. Bright sun has the colors in the leaves glowing.

Our internet was down early this morning. Karen was on it like a dog after a bone. She has to submit her UMD graduate school homework tonight. Technology is great - when its working. If they could not bring our wi fi back we would have been in the oarking lot at the library. I have heard their signal is so strong that works. Laptops and wi fi. Love it.

So we will see what the day holds.
Posted later:

The day held a surprise. Driving back from Gettysburg Jim and I stopped at a yard sale. I poked around and found little - just two small vases for 75 cents (total).
Jim however found some thing out-of-the-blue -- a beat-up old guitar. He bought it.

I asked the happy seller "what's the story on this guitar." "Well we bought it out of a barn about 15 years ago - it's an antique." Oh, yeah, I thought.
"It was a barn up near Shippensburg. The guy had three - I bought all three. This is the last one." I was not enthused and he reminded me . "Its an antique."

A young man standing near-by added, "oh, its old all-right. At least 40 years old. And you can replace those two missing strings."


Jim does not play the guitar but I guess he has been thinking about it because he volunteered that he knows a guy who works at the gas station who is going to teach him.

Honestly, surprises all over the place. So for $15 Jim has a guitar.

When I stood the guitar up for a photograph I noticed a label
B and J Serenader.
A Clue. And - for the first time I saw the nice 1930s style design on the front. Google told the rest. Jim has a ca 1930s B and J Seranader made by Regal - if it was in great shape it would sell for more than $700 -
however, this one is not in great shape
and it just sold for $15.

The next step - to hear it make music.
