I bought some scissors today! The speaker screens are now done.

As many of you know, my house gremlins stole my best pair of scissors last week, making it difficult to finish up the cloth screens I am working on for the AR-4s loudspeakers I am restoring. Today, on my way home from another errand, I stopped by Michael's Art Supply and bought a nice pair of scissors. They cost me $3, plus tax. I finished up the screens, made sure they fit snugly in the enclosures, and snapped the photo I'll attach. All that's left for me is to oil up the cabinets. I think I'll blow off trying to get the tweeters to work right and leave that up to the next proud owner. I don't want this worm hole to get any deeper. The cabinets are made of walnut (real wood veneer) and will finish up nice and dark. I have hidden the screens where Kitty and the gremlins can't get to them. Wait. Hidden them? They are hidden behind another old screen to the left of my left KLH 6. I'll check now to make sure they're still there. How is your day before American Thanksgiving shaping up? Or how did it go?

How did the US and Wales fare the other day? I watched a few minutes of that one at the liquor store.

I saw what appeared to be two of Santa's elves, running out of your door with a pair of scissors! Hmmmm, What are the tweeters?

Oh snap! I was worried about that. I wonder if I've lost the scissors already. The only color they had (for the handles) was black.

@kobesbuddy Tell me more about this rule. All of my lighters are limon green. That's the color our cones see best. I lose them less quickly that way.

@TheHorse OH my gosh, you can't use scissors with a black handle! Only yellow or green, for what you're doing

The speakers look very nice. Are the screens okay? My day before Thanksgiving is going well. I didn't sleep last night but am trying to stay awake and sleep tonight.

So far it sounds like it's going to turn out great. My husband and I are staying in one of our favorite hotels enjoying their social hour, which will be in about an hour. So, there's that. I wrote a discussion about it. Scored some freebies, too.

The speakers look a lot better now with the new screens. My day has been a very common Wednesday and today is a very common Thursday.

When I was a child, the scissors were always going missing. So were erasers. There were other small items which seemed hard to keep track of. In my own house, I have about four pairs of scissors but we rarely find that they go missing. If one pair does, it's not a calamity. I have one pair of dress-making scissors which Vince is forbidden to touch. They are only for cutting material.

Ha ha...as adults, we get powers to dictate where we keep what we need. My father is so disorganized, and while I am absentminded, I do manage to have specific positions for specific things...so yeah, scissors ..don't go missing in our household...AS YET.
