With the sunny, semi-cool weather, I have dug out my bicycle and in the process of rejuvenating it, fixing gears, brakes, wheels, etc. so I can get some exercise for this "ole lady." Come with me on YouTube.com and take a ride along County Road 500, at Vallecito Reservoir to see what my neck of the woods it like.
Besides getting my exercise with my bike, I have also been learning how to pick out "rolls" on my banjo with my right hand. I have only begun the banjo, so no musical repertoire of recognizable songs is being played here. It is turning out to be a slow process of learning the picking, tuning and care of the banjo. No fast picking for this old lady, yet! I will leave that to my youngest son!
