Artwork by Mary Ann DiNella gives the Luna Mermaid Mini acoustic guitar a personality that appeals to young guitar players. The acoustic guitar’s petite size makes it ideal for learning and comfortable to play for small players and children. The Luna Aurora Mermaid Mini Acoustic guitar features moon phase guitar neck fret markings. The crescent moon at the sound hole and fret markers add more Luna magic to this guitar.

Way too much fun

A cruise ship in Spain blows its warps, and some passengers get to go swimming.

Thanks to Mr. Clean for the find.

Now we just need to get Michael trained up to do bow Saturday morning.  I’m letting Edward call tactics on this one, hoping he’ll have better luck than I did in 3BF.
