Jumping into the conversation here (former music ed/voice major). Any double-reed instrumentalist has to make their own reeds. They are very labor-intensive. I took Woodwind Methods twice, including once several years after graduation. I actually enjoyed learning the bassoon, but I’m grateful I didn’t have to make the reeds!
I have our family’s Flexible Flyer, but no one’s used it in years.
Dang!!!! How many teeth did you lose?
I actually felt more comfortable on our plastic saucer than on our Flexible Flyer (which I still have!).
The basic joining fee isn’t that bad… well, compared with the Executive Membership, which used to be the only way one could get a Costco credit card, which I needed when I replaced my HVAC through them. One of the employees that came from the company with whom Costco contracts the service was a former student, so that was cool.
That’s always been my problem: storage space.
It’s 2023, so my guess is Luann would pull it up on her phone to show everyone.
I did hear that Humpty has had a lot of trouble trying to get his act together.
The reason I asked is that it was my understanding that Elon financed Tesla, but didn’t found the company. I mean, great job hiring people who hire the engineers, designers, mechanics, assembly-line (yes?) manufacturers, but I was under the (mistaken?) impression that he did not actually do the actual intellectual, let alone hands-on, work.
So does “jumper,” and it’s taken me years to be able to visualize a sweater instead of an overdress/tunic.
