A fun tangent to the Daily Deal today is that Bette Claire Graham was the mother of The Monkees Mike Nesmith! Hey, hey ...

Bette also was the inventor of White Out (pre-computer product for correcting typing errors. Came in a bottle like nail polish with the little brush).

Jean, Jean, Jean - it isn't made to use on computer screens. No wonder you have trouble reading all the posts!!

Enjoy your day off. I'll be thinking of you as you crawl between all the Spandex, elastic, lace, and satin.

Miss Graham -- who I assume became Mrs. Nesmith -- did us all a big favor inventing Liquid Paper. And she showed tremendous business acumen by selling her company before computers and word processors greatly reduced our need for it.

Truth be known, I actually still use it on a regular basis when I transpose guitar chords on sheet music. Somehow there's poetic justice in that; the musician's mother invented a product to help me with music!

This is just plain crazy as far as I'm concerned.

Sandy, you make it sound like Jean is hanging out with drag queens... jean had a lot more fun when she was hanging out with those guys (The Producers). They were a fun group. I peed on myself laughing everytime they came on stage, they were that crazy hilarious!

Wow Jean! I wish we could post sound files on here as well as pictures. I would LOVE to hear you play. My DH and son have also played for years. Blues mostly for DH. My son is self taught and plays open mics locally. What style guitar do you play?

My DH, Son #2, and I play guitar. I'm not to good like they are. And since I now have long nails, I haven't kept up with practicing. I play an acoustic silk and steel. I like finger picking. (:o)

Oh My Goodness - That photo is too funny!

How fun to find so many guitar-playing WOMEN on M*QC. I play a 12 string, and I've been playing at church for 28 years now. My avatar is the Ibanez guitar I've had since I was 14. I finally had to retire it last year -- it just wouldn't hold its tuning for an hour.

There is nothing I love more than singing, but quilting has become a close second.

Sold my electric about 6 years ago. My brother is the collector, he has 18 guitars now. I still sing in the church choir but because of difficulties with leadership of the group, I no longer play guitar with them.

I have sent that picture to my sister-in-law several times. It looks EXACTLY like her and I can just picture her doing this - needless to say, I won't climb into a car if I know she's going to be driving.

** Three of the DGDs play guitar - one is continuing and has been playing for 8 years now. One recently stopped lessons and went back to the piano, and another stopped lessons to take up the drums. Now if we can get a couple of horn players in there, a singer or two.

Those sound like beautiful guitars. I upgraded to a Taylor 12-string; its a great guitar, but that Ibanez had such a full voice that I miss it.

About the time I bought my Taylor, I found this hilarious video that seemed to have BOTH my guitars in it. If you have four minutes to have a smile, enjoy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5YGc4zOqozo

BTW I understand how difficult church music can get. It takes a strong personality to participate in music ministry. And, sadly, strong personalities can conflict even at church. For the last three years, my hubby (playing electric bass) and I have been a duo at church. We work really well together, so there have been none of the usual "musician" problems. Praise God for that!
