“Experienced” is the word she’s looking for.  Or “tempered”, “cured”, or for the music-gear (or wine) enthusiasts, “vintage“.  By the looks of things, though, Lucille will be amused by Elaine’s clumsy attempt at good-natured flattery no matter which word she chooses.

I read some articles about the curing time of Tru-oil (the varnish I used on my guitar refinishing project I mentioned on the last page), and it seems that a few days is really all you need to wait before you buff it out.  So I went ahead and did that (because I am really, really impatient to play this thing).  It is almost done.  I’ll have pictures on Tuesday.  For now:  Sleep.

Have a great weekend everyone!
