Had the house up for sale, put most of my banjo-making tools into storage.
Didn't do much banjo making.
House didn't sell, hauled everything OUT of storage. Moved it into the house, much in bags & boxes.
Stuff piled EVERYWHERE, didn't have it organized enough to do much banjo making. House also a huge mess.
Wanted to build a garage, so as to be able to put some stuff out of the house.
Busy building a garage, no time or energy for banjo building. House even messier.
Garage now DONE.
Am now running out of excuses to leave the house a mess.
Actually got ONE of the rooms on the first floor cleaned out.
Have run out of excuses, by and large, for having such a mess.
Estimate that I should be finishing a banjo project I started back around March, by end of November. (The General Pharbeigh banjo.)

Now all you need is a banjo-building song to motivate you. :-)

Well, let's see: Could be- - -
He'll be strumming 'round the banjo when it's done, He'll be strumming 'round the banjo when it's done
He'll be strumming 'round the banjo, He'll be strumming 'round the banjo
He'll be strumming 'round the banjo when it's done!
When Little Mikey was a scrawny youngster, No taller than his daddy's knee, He picked up a tin can and a chunk of lumber wood,
And said "A banjo maker I will be, Lor,Lor!
A banjo maker's what I'm gonna be!
You got to JUMP down, spin around, make another banjo!
JUMP down, spin around, make it right a-way!
Geez, Hoosie, you sure know how to inspire a fellow.

Wow, man, you are energetic. At my age, banjos to build and rifles to construct, I find myself in the tub enjoying a little existential meditation on the plight of my big toe...
Glad you are busy. Hey shouldn't we become "friends?" I'm not sure I know how to get on each other's list, but if you wish, kick the proceedings off. OK? I'm kinda the new kid on the block...or is it the blog...
Take care, now.
