Ken_Coles Posted September 30, 2008 Share Posted September 30, 2008 I've looked and looked and never found the thread where I interjected that I was planning a little project of my own. So here is a new thread. I hereby present: The Morse Ceili that is really ready for a Ceili (or other wild Hibernian goings-on)! The motive/deadline was to show it off at this year's Squeeze-In. I never got a suitable act worked up for the concert, so I just showed it to Rich, Bob, and Doug, who all gave a hearty laugh. Very sporting response to my mustache on their Mona Lisa masterpiece. While I've always loved this box, it often struck me as a bit too plain. One day, there in my hand, was the answer! Or so I thought. Truth be told, I feel like I personally know whoever it is at Guinness who glues on these labels; it took me a lot of tries (and a couple of hundred spoiled labels) to get the 84 good ones I needed. You're not going to believe me, but because it takes me a month or three to drink a case of G., it took a couple of years to collect enough bottles and a couple more to finally get around to doing it. Now that I've glued on bellows papers (with water soluble gum glue) I can say it isn't hard, and I may put some more serious papers on my Guens-Wakker baritone with the pretty green bellows. After the first row was on, I laughed. I inverted alternate rows on a whim. Now my reaction is that this is sort of Andy Warhol-like (appropriate since I live near his home town of Pittsburgh). Funny how sometimes these jokes one plays end up being what one is remembered for - oh no! Taking a break from concertina projects (I just bought a century-old sewing maching to fix up), Ken Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
