I merely took the energy it takes to pout and wrote some blues - Duke Ellington (1899 - 1974)

As usual, very nice Carl!  Tr?s bien/Heel leuk/Sehr gut. I like the atmospheric lighting - or does the mains supply go off in the evenings in Belgium?  >:D

How come you seem to be able to master every instrument you pick up in just a short time??  I'd better get back to trying to learn a fourth chord on the guitar...

Thanks PP,  well...you know there are a few crossroads in Belgium...strange things happen there if you arrive at 12 in the evening, toting all the instruments you can hold... >:D

Sadly, the part of Belgium where I live is not yet connected to the mains supply - the government expects to realise this before 2050 - but only if the 'indoor plumbing for everybody' project has been finished...so we have to produce our own electricity and the bike my wife has to use for this is about to fall apart, hence the rather dimmed lights...she had a rough day as well chopping wood for the kitchenrange  and hauling water at the creek wayyyyy down yonder... ;)

Ha ha, Carl.  :)

If anybody says Belgians don't have a sense of humour, I'll hit them with a copy of a Tin Tin annual...  ;)

I likes it fine! ;)
