The Old Man and the Strings

Did anyone in So Cal feel an earthquake about 10 minutes ago (11:15 pm or so)? It wasn't huge or anything, just a little shake?

I might be imagining it.

Do you remember when I went to a going-away bash recently and everyone got to leave with an original painting of their choice? This is the one I chose, newly returned from being framed.

As you can see, I had the perfect spot for it. It's great to finally have a Joe Ongie original in my home.

Better yet, this painting hung in the restaurant Joe and his wife Catherine owned, a place from where I have many fine memories, musical and otherwise. I love having a little piece of the Gypsy Den in my living room.

Oh my. Earthquakes would freak me right out. Do you get them often?

Love the painting, LA. That is a very cool gift to give at a party.

Original art is such a nice touch to any home. (And nice choice on the frame, too.)

We get mild earthquakes once every 5 years or so. Still kinda freaky.

Ah I kinda miss those little shakers tho not the Northridge type quakes. Tennessee has tornados which I have yet to experience (knock on wood)

Cool painting. I like the way you've displayed it.

I didn't notice the quake, though I did wake up about that time

Love the artwork and love the grouping where you have it displayed!

I found the Earthquake. It was a 3.9 in Devore. There were two quakes within minutes of each other.

Great painting and a lovely frame. And you definitely have the perfect spot for it.

PS - Cool guitar!

I like the display of the guitar, wall hanging (with a guitar!) and the new painting.

but what really catches my eye is your ipod thingy. Can't remember what its called but I want one. Do they come in ipod mini size?

Ffleur - It's called a docking station. This one is made by Bose, but there are other manufacturers as well. The Bose docking station comes with various sized adapters so that all ipod sizes will fit. Best of all, the sound quality is fantastic.
