Dry running the equipment for Merediths upcoming archaeological adventure.
I bought this thing back in the seventies along with my gore-tex jacket that I still wear and can be seen in many of my photos.
Still looks good and works well.
Nice fourth with the family, although they sort of arrived sequentially rather than en partie.
Gary didn't get here 'till 3:30 and Dan and Maria 'till 7:30 or so.
But the kids were a hoot.
I showed them my collection of ABS hardware store instruments, violins, et cetera and yea did they create a joyful noise.
Now I have a commission to make a small violin for Ruby.
It's nice to have a reason to make something.
I think I'll make an exit.
