A Whole Year Of This!!

A year of the Covid Blues has not been a lot of fun for any of us.  The Lakewood Music Collective is trying limited hours, again.  Right now Tues & Wed the studios will be open from 2:00pm-7:30pm, and on Sat from 11:00am-1:00pm.  I'm going to do my best to be at the store at those times.  Meanwhile..................

Tragedy has struck the matriarch of my familiy, and although she's doing ok, everything is difficult right now.  I'm navigating through the labyrinth of care decisions that need to be made, taking care of the mundane stuff that makes the world go round, and actually trying to get some work out.  It's been a terrible balancing act for anyone to perform, and I'm not doing it very well.  I'm still working, just not as fast as I wish I was, or as fast as my custumers wish I was.  There are also some jobs I'm finding myself unable to perform, anymore.  That's from hitting the wall of doing 45 years plus of fret dresses, and other micro-torque jobs.  That's going to limit my capabilities.  Even more than the handicaps I was starting with.  Hahahahaha.  However..................

Drop offs are still welcomed during the open hours above, and appointments can be arranged for those who can't make it within those hours.  I seem to be perpetually looking at a list that rarely shrinks below 14 to 16 souls who have trusted me with their instruments.  So I'm not in a position to do anyting in a hurry, but I'm more particular than ever about the shop's production quality.  The time delay can change depending on how many other plates are twirling in the air at any given moment. 

The LMC is poised to take off during the summer, and into the new school year.  Music may be more important than ever in helping us all recover from the difficulties we have all faced in the last year.

Chris has lined up a group of new teachers, and greatly expanded the amount of instruments the studio now offers lessons on.  Please give him a call, or drop an email to the Lakewood Music Collective if you would like any info about lessons. 

  I am grateful to still have something to do, and many thanks to all my custumers: past, present, and future.
