Let’s try again shall we? I did get this blog written the other evening but in my ineptitude I decided that the wrong button to press was right! In other words, I’m a dick and deleted a whole blog (too many words to count but more than usual due to the time I haven’t written … More It’s the final countdown
It wasn’t the bloody guitar that wept today! I shed a tear as I’m realising now what civilian exactness is. I mean we used to work to a couple of millimetre tolerance with tanks but when I’m off by less than a quarter of a mil, I could kick myself in the head when the … More While my guitar gently weeps.
I had it, I had something to do today. As I stood in front of the tumble dryer and realised why so many comedy programs fixate on women and dryers (?) there was a thought about my delivery from Saturday! My ‘Sliders’ I had read the instructions, then thought it would be better to have … More Water on glass
Now it’s been a couple of days since my last tirade (well I call them tirades, they are musings really, just phantoms of my mind fleeing the confines of my bike helmet). I think the last one I wrote was about being crap at woodwork, well since then, I’ve become crapper! All I was asked … More A day at the races
Well it’s Wednesday so that can only mean one thing. Pheonix house guitar building. Now unlike the last unpteen weeks where we were supposed to be sorting out the jigs and frames, I actually MADE some jigs and frame today! There really was an element of planning in this one, but I found that adding … More Measure once, cut once, glue some wood back on.
Sun, bleaching sun through my blinds! It was gonna be a superb day I should say! Well about thirty seconds after the sun awoke me from my slumber (fitful sweaty nights fractures sleep) the clouds rolled on in and took his fucking hat off! Then like a global strobe effect the skies proceeded to confuse … More It’s raining, Raining in my…..town?
Strange weekend really! First I went and got a bit drunk on Friday night, then I spent the entire day (just about) in a motorbike shop drinking coffee and talking to strangers. This was after the news of a good mans death at the TT during the last sidecar race. Then there was Sunday! I … More Raining in my heart (I’ll finish this one eh?)

As I sat last night in Pheonix House (another trip to see if I can start making geetars) I found myself talking to a load of guys with similar problems. Now PTSD is an overarching acronym for many things psychological, but through conversation, all stemming from the same point (sort of). Control; that’s it, or … More A thought!
Well FML, (again) not content with working myself to a sweat yesterday (not very hard these days granted) but today I left my abide a tad early so I could find a small place called ‘Belsay Hall’ (small place????? Forty odd acres of gardens and land…..and a bloody big house/ castle). My reason? Why, to … More Look around see what you do, Everybody smiles at you.
