CHET ATKINS

was one of Nashville's most respected musicians.  "Mr. Guitar", known for his gentleness and humility,  has been a great influence and inspiration to guitarists and music-lovers the world over.  As a tribute to the late Chet Atkins, I'm pleased to feature a number of his arrangements (recorded by some of his avid fans).  Chet Atkins died in June of 2001 at the age of seventy-seven ... but his music will live on forever!

"THE WAIT"

The Wait - A movie written and directed by Matthew Harris of Obscure Entertainment Group.   When Matthew was scouting around for "and older lady" to star in his film, his Mom, my One-Stroke art teacher, recommended me!  I found the script quite impressive and welcomed the opportunity to star in Matthew's film.  Before each "shoot", Susan Ball, the make-up artist, successfully pulled off a few miracles ... spending hours skillfully applying white hair, wrinkles and age spots to achieve just "the right look".

MY BOBCAT LESSON

In honour of my birthday, Leo presented me with a certificate for a three-hour Bobcat Skidsteer lesson!  Along with the certificate, I received two great little models - a Bobcat S175 and a 325 Excavator.


My Gift Certificate


My Toys!

March 29, 2006 - My lesson consisted of watching an hour-long video on the features of the Bobcat, its proper maintenance and safe operation.  This was followed by hands-on experience in one of these neat little machines!
