It’s refreshing to know that a guitar slide is a reasonable enough gift request for me to tend to this Christmas for my favorite nephew who has wonderful musical talents that we are all trying hard to foster. So far so good. He really is a good kid. Get’s good grades, teachers like him, hangs with a decent enough neighborhood crowd and loves playing music on the guitar.
He managed to graduate from high school last year with a pretty high GPS and is now working as a plumber’s helper while pondering college next year. He wanted to take a year off before attending college. We all tried to convince him from doing so, but it is what it is. I’m sure it will all work out in the end and he will turn into a wonderful young man. In the meantime I will continue to enjoy him and his music while he is still around here at all.
