It’s Tuesday! It’s Tuesday! Said nobody, ever.

Poor Tuesday. It really is like the middle child in the Days of the Week family. There aren’t even any jokes about it.

I really do have a banjo named Lucy. It’s a sweet little Bay State banjo (yeah, they made banjos in Boston in them days).

Of course, I have ten other banjos, as well. I didn’t name the others, except that one I showed you. The one I call the Lurve Banjo.

Incidentally, I have cleaned that one up and put it back together again and it’s a fun little banjo. Getting some fret buzz because there’s a split in the head and the bridge is riding too low (and because the frets aren’t proper instrument frets but square bits of wire). I’ll have to order a goatskin for it.

It seems like a goatskin kind of ‘jo to me.

I’ve been listening to “Ashokan Farewell” on the banjo, a sweet melancholy beauty. A good song for a Tuesday.

I only work 4 days/week and have every Wed off. I refer to Tues as “first Friday.” I have the BEST work schedule with 2 Fridays every week! So lowly Tues is one of my favorite days!

So, does Lucy the Banjo know about Banjo Lubricant?
(That’s as far as I’m going with this one, but I did just notice that Google has REALLY cleaned up the results for that one.)

Well, Google hasn’t cleaned up the image search results for the related product “banjo salve’ (yet). I hope all of you are adults.

Ms. Weasel: did you celebrate last Friday? Because K-Tel founder Philip Kives died at the age of 87. This is a man who “by the time he was 8… was catching weasels and selling their fur.”

Talk about a Bad Seed! The demise of such an enemy of mustelids ought to be an occasion for joy.

What’s the deal with Leicester and some soccer team? People keep going on and on about it but I cant make heads or tails of it.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
