We hope this message finds you and your families well. Since last update, so much has transpired and the rapid pace in which events are unfolding is unprecedented. The spread of the covid-19 virus has prompted government officials to warn citizens against traveling altogether and are strongly suggesting people stay home. These travel advisories have impacted everyone worldwide.

We want you to successfully weather this unsurpassed storm of events, and we will too. Stay healthy and eat well, be safe, stay sober in order to make the best decisions possible for you and your family. Remain organized and keep lists of important phone numbers handy, drink water and hydrate often, remain strong and fit by continuing any exercise program you are currently on. Stay mentally active to avoid depression by reading, playing music and improving your guitar skills.

Covid-19 and you

While you’re stuck “sheltering in place”, consider doing things that need doing. Look around and fix broken items in the house, the car and your guitar that you never got around to. Use your time management skills to your advantage and be productive as well as creative with your extra time. Invent, study and explore your musical instruments. Do these things for yourself and as a helpful positive example for those around you who may benefit from your direction. Be there for them. Most importantly, please stay safe and well.

    Hello Rick oh, I trust that you are doing everything to stay healthy and safe. I am doing the same not much going on. With some of the health issues I have I have sheltered in place going out occasionally to do work on the apartment complex,, but for the most part not taking on any new clients as I don’t know what I’m walking into. It is a good time for me to spend more time with my wonderful guitars haha!!! Continue to do what you know is right and take care of your health and Sanity. And know that you’re loved from Tehachapi California. Hope to hear from you soon my nephew, yours truly love always your Uncle Bubba.
