Aurora 16

Posted by Malou at 6/12/2015 06:32:00 PM 0 comments Links to this post
My neighbor next door has a few different collections. Besides having his own family band years ago he now collects old band equipment guitars, amps etc. It seems like every other weekend he's dragging something through the side yard to show me. My husband also has quite an expensive collection of guitars. This past weekends surprised my husband with something new. The aurora 16 as they were down in the basement hooking it up I heard my husband laughing with Paul saying I guess  you're going to start buying new stuff now? 

Feeling sick

Lately we have all been feeling sick. And I mentioned to my husband it seemed like the county water had more chlorine smell on it. Sure enough he tested it and its about ten times the normal chlorine level that it had tested about two years ago. So instead of just boiling the water to feel safe we went out and bought some Nestle's  bottled water until the town gets back to him on why the level is so high.

Eddie van halen string gauge

Posted by Malou at 4/05/2015 03:03:00 PM 0 comments Links to this post
So we finally figured out a date for the kids and a couple of relatives to come over for a weekend to try to revive  the family band.  After my son telling me  he needs a new foot switch  he also asked if I could buy a eddie van halen string gauge. So far the list of things has grown from one thing to eight new things I have to order. What they all don't know is next weekend I have the electrician coming out to install a couple of new circuits to carry the power that we need for the new amps.

Snack time

Before having our Easter seafood dinner  everybody was ready for a snack after the big breakfast had wore off and I was ready for everybody because I had baked apple strudel cupcakes. They were the hit of the day so far but wait for my seafood to be done cooking.

The Hanger Project Men's Hangers

Posted by Malou at 3/26/2015 07:16:00 PM 2 comments Links to this post
About ten years ago my husband decided to sell his business. He went to work for a global company it specializes  in just  building store fronts. A lot of times when they are constructing  the fronts the owner of the store wants to come up with an unusual interior making his store unique to all the other ones that are out there.  Some of the things that he builds may only take a day to build them but what you don't see is how many hours went into utilizing a designer sometimes an architect and hopefully the ideas that come from the owner of the store. A three day job sometimes requires ten extra trips back to the store tearing out a new built to replace it with another new build.
 
My husband heard the owner discussing the different kinds of hangers they were thinking about using in their store. In a way my husband could understand what the debate was about. Over the years the coats and jackets that I bought my husband a lot of them are very heavy and you need special hangers to hold them to keep them in shape. The Hanger Project Men's Hangers  has very unique hangers  that can accommodate anything  that you might want to keep in shape for many years.

Hungry fish

Our salt-water fish  are becoming so finicky. I ran out of their regular food the other day so I boiled up some fresh clams then chopped them all up and they didn't seem to like that very well. They like their store bought cube shrimp. The next morning I let them starve for a little bit before I feed them the rest of the clams. I guess they figured out they better eat it or go without.

Fender acoustic amp

Posted by Malou at 11/20/2014 05:09:00 PM 0 comments Links to this post
Over the years  we had been changing out some of the old equipment of the band for new. In the past year its been really tough to get together to play in our band  but now that everybody has better schedules it's time to get together and have some fun again. Replacing my old amp for a new fender acoustic amp is kind of hard. The amp that I had for years seems like an old friend  and changing it out  took a little while.
