Boogers of Beeswax ::: Twist of Hemp 45:::

We got a little gooseneck filming tool in the post today just minutes before I started today’s drawing so I did a quick movie to see how it works.  I like the gooseneck tool, but I need to change my angle.  It’s all an experiment.  

Anyway! John Joe Badger and I have been diligently working with the poor shocked drone reeds, trying to get them into tune.  My pipes teacher Cathy has been sooooo patient, teaching me all about how to remove the reeds ever so carefully and place bits of booger shaped beeswax here and there to teach the reed where to be and how to sound.  It’s one part wishful thinking, two parts magic and 1 part engineering.  But it’s fun to fiddle with as an escape from this frightful world on some days.

What are you doing to escape reality now and then?
