You can tuna banjo, but you can't tuna fish....
I've been on a dead run all day. Up early and at the dentist by 8, home by 9 and I worked til 8. Smacked monsters (unsuccessfully) for a while, and now I am back at it. I played for a short while during a quick dinner break, which consisted of the end of the egg salad and a can of tuna mixed in. Worked for me. I will be slammed, work-wise, for the next 3 weeks, but the payoff will be worth it.
Both of my banjos need strings; I am hoping to carve out the time this weekend to change them. Or maybe Friday. I think I only have one full set, and that means I need to find some time to get to the music store. I know I can order them online, but I do like to support my local music shop when I can. The last time I was there, there was one cheap, scary-looking banjo in the acoustic room. I was afraid to touch it, because it looked like a stiff wind might tear it apart. But perhaps if more banjoists shop there, the selection will improve. So I try to do my part.
It's still very cold here, and we are due for snow flurries overnight. But the signs of spring are still evident, even though I still have ice on the driveway. So I know it will get here. Once it does, I won't be as content to work very long days, so I suppose I should take advantage of the last few gloomy days and get my nose to the grindstone!

Just don't wear yourself out and break. Don't grind your nose all the way off. Just a little. LOL We need you here. Spring is just around the corner and you won't even remember the ice and snow.

Always leave room for some Banjo Therapy! I actually look forward to changing strings, makes the banjo sound so much better!
The same as when I sharpen my wood chisels in the shop, you just gotta use 'em!
