Jacob and his Fender

 
 
  
Recently, I spent the day with my grandson. He is teaching himself to play guitar by watching the guitarists on YouTube. Who knew? Click the screen above to see the video... video

 
Obviously, I'm not working very hard this summer. From the time Jacob was a toddler I told him to come on over whenever he wanted to. "Gramma's writing a novel, not world peace," I'd tell him.
 
Other news around here:
 
On my CD Player- Dan Mangan's CD Nice, Very Nice. Love this guy. he's a real poet. and Bread's CD, The Best of Bread. He has some music I'm craving that was recorded in Brazil, too, but I haven't ordered it yet.
 
On my TV- As usual, I'm the last to know about a good TV show because I don't watch much TV. I am crazy about The Big Bang Theory. Can't get enough of it!
 
On my bed table- Gifts of the Crow by John Marzluff and Tony Angell (How perception, emotion, and thought allow smart birds to behave like humans.)
 
On my Kindle- Mary, Queen of France, by Jean Plaidy
 
In my kitchen- homemade salsa with homegrown tomatoes and cilantro (made by our daughter), fresh caught salmon from the river just three miles away (I'm hoping it isn't full of radiation), yellow squash (homegrown) soup with onions, garlic and cubed chicken, and more...
