February was cold and snowy enough, with 12 or so snow days, which slowed produc-
tion, but I got some reading done, and my French is coming along tres bien. I've been trying to develop a story in my mind about a violin maker, and I am beginning to outline it on paper. I don't believe it will be the "Great American Novel", but It may make a good read. Again, anything to avoid getting a real job.
Here's some pictures of my latest instruments, construction completed but without lacquer. Also, did you notice my updated "Home Page" photo?
