^Playing a stringed instrument is actually rather unlike riding a bike. To be good you have to play every day, and while I did learn young enough that I know I can still play, it's definitely not the sort of thing that just comes back to you after years of not playing. Playing the cello and riding a bike are similar in that both involve placing an awesome piece of human technical and creative achievement between the legs, though.
Stupid lucky cello...
Garrison Keillor on the cello:

The Cello section seems so normal, and 'cellists seem like such nice people. The way they put their arms around their instruments, they look like parents zipping up a child's snowsuit. They seem like us: comfortable, middle-range. And yet there is something too comfortable, maybe too sensual about the cello. The way they hold the instrument between their legs: why can't they hold it across their laps or alongside themselves? I'm only asking.
And of course female cellists would be banned from playing 'Hol Rock'.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

All I can play on a piano are the notes to the musical tone used to communicate with the aliens in Close Encounters. That impresses somebody else for about, oh, a minute or two. If that. Then its: "so....what else can you play?"

Sad, really.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Getting situated in the new house, decided that we needed to update the mud room. Met a wonderful local carpenter through our real estate agent. He came out and built these cubbies for our children to use.

Before


During


Finished


It's designed to be able to grow with the kids. I really look forward to them using it over the next decade or so.

Having lived most of my life in the South, I'd never heard of a mudroom until we started watching HGTV a few years ago.

^It's the place where you take off your boots, coats, etc. In places that have snow, you change out of your winter in the mud room so you don't track snow and mud throughout the house. In most homes, it's a small coat room for kids' backpacks, shoes, umbrellas.

I've only seen them in East Coast homes; I haven't seen them in California or Texas, but I have seen them in Philadelphia and Maine.

More like the crap the weather produces gets its own room, so you only have one space to mop up, instead of the whole bloody house.

I imagine it's also a great way to keep kids organized. All their junk--backpacks, jackets, boots, sports gear--gets dumped in one place, instead of spreading it all over the house.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Our mud room is also our laundry room. So it serves a dual purpose.
