    So…that’s a steel guitar? I always thought it had something to do with the strings. It sure is purty!

    Swampy – We made the stencils and painted Kokopellis in a border around the room and then Willi stenciled the quilt blocks and I put them together. The innerds for the quilt is an old blanket of my moms so it is doubly nice.

    Dilling – Ah – Tom Waits. He’s been around a while too! Nice lyrics.

    Susan – There are different types of steel guitars, as I found out this morning. This is what I always called a steel guitar, but you will also see pedal steel guitars that are rectangle shaped and sit on a stand and lap steel guitars. The key to this one actually, as Willi tells me, is that it is a “resonator” guitar because of the way it is built so that the sound resonates. What I really know is that I like the way it sounds.

    Jenn – Oh, the blues is right! Is there good music where you are?
