    Musicians — the qualifier — said it all.

    Me too. Her eyes in panel 3 are adorable.

    I like the way Lizzie seems to be glancing over to see if her mother noticed what she’s doing yet!

    One fish is missing. I think Lizzie ate it.

    All that hi-tech equipment (for the day). Reminds me of high school days when I acquired a Wurlitzer juke box for $10.00
    System I put together was not hi-fi, but could be heard 1/2 mile away or more. The amplifier had two 6L6 in push-pull and a 14" speaker. Later added a pre-amp (for a microphone) and switch to connect to a modulation transformer to drive an amateur radio transmitter. (Back in the days that AM was still popular and not yet obsoleted by SSB)

    Right. Since when were ordinary musicians sane and normal?

    All the members of our jazz orchestra back in high school were either band geeks of the 5th order, or psychos who turned to music to quell their inner demons. It was an interesting dynamic, but yeah, no one was you would call “normal”.

    Lynn ’s Notes:
    Around the time that my brother came to live in southern Ontario, I began taking classical guitar lessons. I had learned to play by ear, I owned and played a 12 string guitar, an acoustic 6 string and I still played the button accordion! Many of my friends were musical and I began to go to coffee houses to sing and enjoy the company of people who would eventually become very well known- like Stan Rogers and Leon Redbone.


    My dear babysitter would take Aaron for a whole weekend, sometimes, as I joined the musical all-nighters that made for new sounds and crazy new friendships. Some of the places I stayed were less than comfortable. People slept on couches and chairs. You sacrifice comfort for the sake of the music. Musicians are unique, wonderful people and it helps to be a little a little insane!

    Good old 6L6’s. Fender guitar amps used those, as I recall. The 50 Watt ones used two and the 100 Watt ones used four, I think. Do you still have a license?
