Oddly Enough Blog: Basil Strings Along

"Seeing the world with strings attached"
Robert Basler, Oddly Enough blog, Reuters (December 28, 2010)

"Blog Guy, you haven't mentioned your brother, Basil, in a while.

"I believe you once told us he works overseas, in an expatriate job. He's an expert at export, as I recall?

"No, he's no longer an expat export expert. Basil left for a career as a folk musician. He moved to the Gulf, to play guitar in Doha.

"He plays guitar in Qatar?

"He didn't like it, so he said aloha to Doha...."

The post goes on like that for a while. Playing with the sounds of words like this appeals to the Lemming. As I've said before: Your experience may vary.

For the sake of seeming to be analytical, the Lemming noted that Basil plays - or played - the guitar, banjo, spoons, and mandolin. Also, the Lemming notes with some surprise that there is lacking a report of Basil playing the viola in Angola.

Perhaps biographical detail will appear in a subsequent post.

Actually, some of yesterday's news may be here. Or maybe last week's.
