The Horse gets back to basics.

Given that I'm stuck at home a lot these days, I decided to get back to basics. I've been making guitar sound hole coasters again. I mostly give these to musician friends, but I've sold a few pairs for $20/pair. I guess you could say that adds to my MyLot earnings. My overhead for this hobby is quite low: free sound holes from guitar manufacturers. A little stain. A little polyurethane to make them waterproof. Felt bottoms from Hobby Lobby. A borrowed glue gun. I'll probably start a couple of new pairs today before heading off to Guitar Center to teach some lessons. What's on your agenda for this sunny and mild Tuesday?

I made it home from Guitar Center. Maybe I'll listen to "One Toke Over the Line." It mentions bicycles and other stuff in the same song. I have it on vinyl.

@TheHorse I had it several years ago but sold it, I like that cut but the rest of the album didn't really grab me

I guess I’m going to order a couple of guitar sound hole coasters from some guy in California to help him afford his myLot Lamborghini. Just finished lunch, so I’m going to the park for a walk.

Getting ready for our trip. The days are running out; and we have so much to do. Our housekeeper is coming over today to help me pack since I can't do the running around.

Nice to have something to do. And make some money at it.

I'd like having a hobby that makes me money, rather than costing me money.

Did you score anything good? If you wind up with any vintage loudspeakers or guitars, let me know.

Coasters are something Americans put under beverages so said beverages don't leave rings on nice living room (or dining room) tables. I do not know whether coasters are used around the world.

I just took Pretty to the Post Office and paid the bills for the month... And now I'm back on myLot reading about your fun-filled day. I can't believe how long it's taking to fix your truck.
