Cat tricks

 Cat with a hula hoop.
(Thanks, Gisele Metten FB)
Bottom photo: I captured my own cat standing on my porch. Isn't she cute?
She kind of resembles the cat with the hula hoop
don't you think? I will have to get her a hula hoop!
You can see how inspirational my own cat is.

It is a small self-portrait with a guitar.
There is an exhibit in Brussels at the BOZAR of

Tickler #3 - A Concert Ukulele (Crehore)

Tickler # 3 is getting near the point where I will soon be painting the top and headstock. This is a photo of the bridge being set up. As you can see, the bridge is made of carved ebony (lovingly carved by luthier Lou Reimuller) - it is my original design, as is the uke itself. There will be bridge pins and a saddle, so this is just a glimpse of what it will look like. There are also many other great features that this photo doesn't even begin to show. I will reveal them a little later on. Stay tuned!

Lou has worked so hard on this and his craftsmanship is near perfection.
Here's the link to a couple more photos of this # 3 uke in progress on flickr.

Also, Link to Tickler #2 which is a soprano pineapple model (that I designed and Lou built).
