Bass fishing is a great waste of time and a chance to get outdoors and "commune with the gods of nature." I love it.

Besides, I think Skippin'School is a wonderful nickname for you.

Why select "Bass"? 

I do enjoy an occaisional (that is, on every occaision) pale ale...



Maybe it's the love of the lower end...
     

Possibly a character from a popular movie...

Could be that fishing is the best use of our time...

but most likely- my wife's frequent reference to the "big-mouth bass#@rd" who drags dirt and rocks home from God-knows-where... ;D

Your spelling of 'base' means rude or crude. This is none of these things. I like a bit of slap bass.

A friend here in Montana makes bass and acoustic guitars by hand- they are a sight to behold.  Expensive too!

And what makes you think I misspelled the word? I may not be as dumb as you are, you know.

It was PUN!

I've got a 5-string bass guitar. You can get 6-string basses too.



The model shown (Ibanez SR506) is even more unusual in that it has 24 frets. Most guitars, including basses, only have 22.

My eldest son plays the double bass. I'm trying to get him interested in bass guitars but he prefers classical music. Where did I get him from?

He isn't your child - he has a strong streak of refinement.

Bach to the other subjects.

So do I - although, technically, it's a bass violin.

A whole new world of weird and wonderful musical instruments are opening up to me.

But JimBob is right we are supposed to be travelling the world and looking at its glories.

Then how about looking at the Rocky Mountains? They rival the Alps in their beauty, majesty and in simple awe-inspiring breathtaking scenery.

Breath taking is right. I had an asthma attack climbing in the Rockies. I think it was the altitude crossed with the ranching I'd been doing (horses make me cough, sadly!)

The Rockies are impressive from above. I flew over them on my way to LA & it was amazing.

Neil - yes, the Lake District is stunning; but don't forget it's the rainiest place in England.

Neil - it's actually Keswick that has the dubious honour of being the rainiest place in England.

I spent my honeymoon in the Lake District at Borrowdale and it never rained at all. We had fekin snow every day!
