Stringer, A Long

Posted on Saturday, October 2nd, 2021 at 3:13 am

In the process of adding new strings to the Egee. Four are on the keys, eight to go, then stretch and tune. Taking a break from the action, which started with removal, then polish, then string insertion at the bridge. It’s my last set of M190 (Martin). Ever. I have a MSP6400 (phosphor) and four MA190 SP.


Stringer, A Long is from Big Time Fishing, the wife of Fuller Stringer. Her maiden name was Anastasia Long, but she hated Anastasia, so she went by simply A (pronounced ah, so as not to be confused with hey). When married, she became A Long-Stringer. But Fuller wouldn’t let her get a driver license, because her name would appear as Stringer, A Long (string her along). The longest A string was the last one I keyed before the break.


It’s October, and it started off raining. Most of the rain moved east, but a small rain cloud hung around town like a lost puppy that decided you’re the one. It dropped 2.2″ after the 2.6″ we got on the 29th.


A third of the baked potato soup is gone (3 quarts total, 1 down, 2 to go). Plenty else in the fridge and freezer.


Payday came and went, nothing happening to mark its presence. The emergency perks are still there, sans the smallest one that expired.


I need to make doctor appointments for both me and Myka. I may get as many needles as she will.




The Egee is in tune again (at least temporarily). Looks pretty too.
