THUNDERBIRD, BABY!  Be the coolest cat to slap a plank and get you a Thunderbird.

Up the neck and tonal range?  Come on!  It's a bass. It's supposed to be low notes. You don't need anything above 14. If you do, use a guitar.

You go all up 14  I was thinking 12

i thought i'd give bass a go 2 decades ago. so bought a bass and joined a band who played a bit of everything, but i played it like a lead guitar, and missed my timing quite a lot with the result that i got a lot of telling-offs from the drummer. if i was standing too close on stage i got a drumstick across the knuckles. so my advice; keep it simple, stay in time (listen to the bass drum) and don't try to be too clever

That's been the problem with the last bass player

Dishwasher leaks. 

Washing machine has a worn down gear.

Kitchen drain has been a problem for a long time.  They keep running a snake down it and saying there's nothing there.  Well run the darn thing further then because "nothing" doesn't stop water, and the only one that doesn't drain is the kitchen, so it's a partial clog somewhere between the sink and where the drain connects with the main stack. 

Everything else but the kitchen sink comes to the main stack elsewhere. 

Oh, and the hose bib on the front of the house started to leak enough to discolor all the brick around it.  So, now there's another water thing. 

And the passenger window on my truck stopped working, so that's at least an anti-water thing. 

All this in the last two days.
