In which Remy gets more stuff...

Got a new cane. I'll post some pics after the battery in my camera recharges. It's a hand carved Indonesian cane; the handle is shaped like a femaile naga. And yes, I meant to spell femaile that way; I think it looks better. So nyah.

Anywho, we hung out with Matt and Katy, two of Cate's old friends. Fun was had. Antique stores were visited. One of them had the oddest instrument. Mandolinish, except that the back was round instead of flat. Almost teardrop shaped. Now, the fingerboard was mandolin-like. Eight strings, paired, tuned in fourths. Fretted. There was only room for eight strings, eight slots in the nut, eight slots on the bridge, eight for the tailpiece. But the head of the instrument had twelve tuning pegs. I couldn't find any sign that the neck was redone in any fashion. I am perplexed.
