Very well spotted indeed! I bet that's a brand new Weber! (OK)
Friends call me Chuck. :photo: This link takes you to my Flickr albums. Please click on any album to scroll through it.

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|

Nope. Screen top on our home AC. Werers are too expensive. Matt

My mother played the guitar, my great aunt played the piano and my wife played the accordion. I can play the radio pretty well but that's the extent of my musical abilities. :lol:

I bought an old second hand piano because I have always wanted to play. Had it tuned, as best as the fellow could do. Started lessons last week. Told the teacher I don't have time -- or patience -- to learn to read music; I just want to learn how to play by ear. And he showed me how. So, I am plunking away. "Send in the clowns." Matt

Good on you! I don't have that kind of coordination. If I were ever to try a musical instrument it would love to learn either be the bagpipes or the hurdy gurdy. I've always had an affinity for these two. Or the bodhrán on the percussion end of musical instrument. Unfortunately I have other interests that far outweigh any desire to learn a musical instrument but I do appreciate those who can play at any level of competency.
