Soundtrack was the 1966 John Mayall and the Blues Breakers with Eric Clapton album.

My son and I have been taking online guitar lessons together and also working on some home brew amplifier kit projects.  He’s learning about electronics as we go.  We recently completed an 18 Watt Marshall Plexi kit, which inspired the Blues Album choice for this morning.  We are both pretty novice with the guitar, but it’s been a lot of fun spending more time with my son, who will be 14 in a couple of weeks.  I don’t want to take the time I have with him at home for granted, so finding good ways to hang out together is a huge blessing.  So, if you want to hear a shaky rendition of the opening bars of some songs you never really liked, come on over.  I would encourage all of you to find a good way to bond with your kids before you ship them off to grown-up land. 

Enjoy your time with relatives this Thanksgiving.  For those travelling and staying with your folks or the in-laws, just try to make the most of it.  Search around and turn it into a treasure hunt. 

Lots of things in play:

  • Punky Brewster VHS collection
  • 27 year old bottle of Prell shampoo
  • 1973 Funk and Wagnalls Encyclopedia set w/ the “S” volume locked away
  • Fraggle Rock tank top
  • That He-Man action figure that smells like an old sock on purpose
  • Some Olan Mills portraits where three of your faces are inserted into a larger version of your face
  • Love notes to your old flame written in Iambic Pentameter
  • Assorted H.R. Pufnstuf memorabilia

Whatever you find, just make the most of it and enjoy time with your family. 

Time to run,
