Cool, they are a very big band in the Alternative music scene. Very good musician/song writers, I have downloaded a couple of their songs over the years. Who knew they would have such good tastes in luthiers

Laurelyn and friend did go to last night's Imagine Dragons show in Sac and had a ball, she reports. Front and center tickets, too! She hoped to see my guitar in use, though I would be surprised to see it incorporated in two days, or at all for that matter. Still, she sent me a picture that COULD be it, and said it was brought on stage for just one tune and then taken off again. If anyone could recognize my work in such a chaotic setting (besides myself), it would be her. Definitely unconfirmed.

Although this particular guitar would be a serious overkill indulgence on a rock stage, it is actually highly experience as a performance tool, and would surely be up to it. I used it on less glamorous "stages" something like (wasn't counting) a hundred of times myself over the last 11 years.

I opened my go-to iPhone guitar tuner app, ClearTune, today and discovered it has been updated. I have always tolerated it's finicky needle position as it is easily used and highly versatile, but today it works unprecedentedly well. It's the little things in life, sometimes, that make all the difference. Thank you, ClearTune!

I roughed in Vic's neck today. Just 80 grit over rasp work, but the lines are established:





Cocobolo, logotogo.

The air is terrible this morning in Petaluma, but the major fires you may have heard of by now are about 20 miles north of my shop. Still, I am thinking about what to pack.

Really bad at our house as well. We woke up to ash settled all over the place and it looked foggy outside with all the smoke. House wasn't too bad as we kept the windows shut overnight.

I just heard from Howard Klepper and he and Helen are safe. They were evacuated at 2 am last night and he thinks he has lost his home and shop though he is unable to get back into the neighborhood so far.

Wow--that's horrible news about Howard. So glad they are safe though.

Stay safe, Bruce--hope the fire keeps its distance from your place.

So sorry about Howard. We were roused about 3:00 am. Got everything we could loaded up and ready to evacuate, but ok so far. Devastation 4 mi. south.
The smoke and ash are unbeliveably heavy. Hwy 101 has been closed southbound most of the day. Many homes and businesses destroyed. Be safe out there.

Because I can't really tell what's happening from media (They make it look as bad as possible!) I jumped on my KTM and rode the edge of the fire(s) area. Couldn't get to Howard's and the entire ridge looks like a fireplace. Rode the perimeter of Santa Rosa and it looked much better than I expected, not that that'll do Howard any good. Word is SOME homes are still standing on Howard's Bennett Valley ridge, so we can cross our fingers.

There are at least four major fires going near here, and it seems like an unlikely coincidence. I think I read that there are 19 fires in all that sprang up over night, though several are over a hundred miles away. I am guessing there is going to be an interesting though tragic story behind this catastrophe. Perhaps it's just that there's been so much of that kind of drama lately one gets to expect it.

My thoughts are with those that have been caught up in this calamity, may they find a way through to safety.

Default you're fired

So sorry to hear that happened to anyone, much less one that we "know" here, one that would have so much irreplaceable wood and tools.

Stuff like that makes me happier to live where I do. No fires, no hurricanes, no tornados, no drought, no tsunamis, and even less snow and cold than was normal before global warming starting making itself known. Not that we are immune to tragedy, it's just less likely.
