lefthanded guitar BS: Where do the picks go? (29) BS: Where do the picks go? 05 Apr 18


We know where all the flowers have gone. We're pretty sure where
that spare sock had gone:
creviced in the recesses of our dryer. Pens, even lost pens can be
found again, usually by tracing the ink stains in the pockets of one's
best hand woven sweater.

But picks!!! Wherever do they disappear to?!? I buy a half dozen at
a time, and by the end of the month, they've all disappeared.
Not in the guitar case. Not in the little clear plastic pickbox I
bought just for this very reason. Not on my desk, or under my desk,
or even between the, admiittedly, ever growing pile of newspapers,
books and magazines adorning my desk.

Here 's the weird thing- they disappear and are never to be
seen or heard from again. Socks turn up when you do
enough laundry. Pens (and keys and lost CDs) turn up
when you move. And I m not saying anyone should consider
moving just to find a rare and cherished autographed Bill Staines CD, that may
eventually show up in your sock drawer (as did mine). But they
do show up, eventually (though you may have to do a cartload
of laundry and move some furniture around.)

But where are those flatpicks?!!!???


Btw I realize this is a pretty slim topic for discussion, but hey,
I'm suffering through the longest winter to ever hit the
Tri state area. Snow the first week of April and TWO more
snowstorms heading this way this week. So I ' m lookin'
for some humorous diversions and observations from
you witty and/or philosophical catters. I' m looking
for a way to pass these slushy hours indoors. I 'm
looking for some fun.

And I 'm also looking for my picks.
