That's it for the Banjo versus TV project!

Sunday, December 26, 2010 @8:51:08 PM


It's time, my loyal readers (Hi Mom!), to end the Banjo versus TV project and to start a new banjo(ish)-related project in its place.

"Why?" I hear you ask, because you're kind of loud when you cry out in surprise.

Because TWINS! That's why.

From left to right: Baby B, J.R., Baby A

I've really enjoyed doing the Banjo versus TV project since I started it in 2008 as a new year's resolution. I have, since then and with only a short break, kept that resolution and have spent as much time on my banjo as I spent watching TV. It's been very, very good for my banjo playing.

But with the twins here, a few things are changing. For one, the redhead and I are determined not to have the TV on all the time as we're raising the twins. If I'm only going to watch a meager amount of TV, what's the point of matching that with a meager amount of banjo time?

Also, too: There's just not going to be a lot of time for blogging.

If I'm going to continue exploring the banjo — and I am — I'll need to try a different approach. An approach which will...

  • take into consideration the limited amount of time in a new father's schedule,
  • figure out how to integrate amateur banjodom and parenthood,
  • be a little more forgiving of delay than a track-my-time-really-carefully and blog-about-it-once-a-week project,
  • but still be fun.

So watch this space for my next project: New Daddy Banjo.

Contratulations! Twins are something else - they don't eat, sleep or need to be changed at the same time! Have fun!

My twins are now 46 years old and I wouldn't trade a second of my life with them.
