the Reynosos' Torrance home while my MG TD was in their garage for its semi-blueprint
engine rebuild. It was during this period Miguel Angel "Mike" Reynoso
told me I'd have to make a choice: "You can't have both guitarist and mechanic
hands." He was wrong. No choice required, just inattention. I am barely competent
to either play or wrench, and my hands aren't remarkable one way or the other,
even though at numerous junctures I did simultaneously have serious dings on my
knuckles and calluses on my finger tips.
