Picture of the Week #14

Standard

We are staying with fireplaces this week,

as we found another beautiful fireplace in another room,

hidden behind a 50’s wooden board.

before and after

After cleaning and repainting, it will look great.

It is so much fun to discover new things and to restore them.

Food for thought

Most of the things you see, touch, and use today
were thought to be impossible as little as 10-20 years ago.
"Impossible" usually only means
"hasn't been done... " yet.
This one started to bloom……. with all this rain and wind we are having at the moment.

Good Bye Double Bass

Standard

It was time to say good bye to my Double Bass adventure.

It has been picked up again to travel back home.

What a great adventure and experience it was!

It is an amazing instrument and not that easy. It made me admire and respect the Bass players who so easily improvise.

I had such a great time learning it

I loved every minute of it.

I can only recommend,
if you want to try something you are passionate about...
go for it....
have fun,
you might love it,
and you will always remember it.

Here are some Blues I learnt with ‘You Tube’ backing tracks:

12 Bar Blues in C
Jazz Blues in F – Improvising
Bags’ Groove 140bpm

To finish off a riff

Hope you enjoyed the odd Blues.

I have recorded more so I can always listen and remember the time with my Double Bass fondly.

A big THANK YOU to my sister who made this adventure possible.

Laugh a little

Standard

Shared laughter is the best tonic.

Laughing is essential in life.

Have a laugh today!

What is the longest word in English?

Smiles – there is a mile between each S.

Today is Wednesday, which means  tomorrow is Pre-Friday which means the next day is Friday.

So it’s basically Friday!

A: I have the perfect son.
B: Does he smoke?
A: No, he doesn’t.
B: Does he drink whiskey?
A: No, he doesn’t.
B: Does he ever come home late?
A: No, he doesn’t.
B: I guess you really do have the perfect son. How old is he?
A: He will be six months old next Wednesday.

Have a fun filled day with lots of laughs!
