Had a busy couple weeks around the "Old North Forty".  Still little rain, but we enjoyed a couple days of heavy mist.  Better than nothing.  At least it gave the grass a drink. 

Visited with Bro-in-Law for a few hours this morning and you know how that goes.  It's amazing to me how one man can be so knowledgeable in most subjects known to man and still have such a massive deficieny in logic.

Had to spend a few hours in the barn, trying to arrange things so to get the tractor in for some winter maintenance.  You don't realize how much stuff just acclumates our of thin air.  I can't remember buying half this junk.  Must have crawled through when the doors were open.  Talk about a super yard sale, wait until spring. 

Managed to install a Vertical antenna this week for my amateur radio station.  It works well on most bands and frequencies, but I'll still be relying on the old standby "longwire" for a while.  Need to do more comparison between the two.

Finally got back into "almost a routine" for practice .  I've tried to set aside at least 1 - 1 1/2 hours daily, but it's not working out that well.  It's more like 30 - 45 minutes when I can catch a break.  Sure didn't expect to be this busy in retirement.  I believe I had more time when I was working.  At this rate, my fingers will never toughen up.

That about does it for this week.  I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and getting prepared for the one to come.

Tom, I know how you feel. I'm retired now. I'm so busy I don't know when I had time to work. Although, I do get in a little more practicing than you do. I don't have a barn or a tractor though.

Good Morning!  Maybe with winter coming on there will be more time to take the hour or so for practice daily.  I sure don't care to work in that barn during long stretches when it's cold.  Besides, a hot cup of coffee, and the twang of a good banjo is enough to get your attention. 

I think I will even continue my lessons after the holiday, if my instructor has room on his roster.  Nice man too, extremely tolerant and can abolutely put fire into those old strings.  And, with a student like me, you know the man has to be tolerant.
