Sounds like the ingredients for some strange Rube Golberg contraption. This seven year old should be watched.
I would strongly encourage the banjo. A five-string open back should do very nicely.
Off topic: Does anyone know what happened To Capt. Dave? Flight Level 390 has disappeared from the blogosphere. I miss him.
My 8 year old asked for a ukelele. She is going to get it.
Steve Martin would agree.
What a perfect interlude in the madness! It's why this is still my first stop every morning.

Six-year-old nephew, when asked what he wants for Christmas, answered simply, "Gum." That's a big improvement over last year when he asked for a dinosaur head to hang on his wall.
The year before that, when he was four, he wanted a "phonics kit." I was rather puzzled, until I realized he meant the Snap Circuit electronics kit.
In any case, this year I'm getting him a gumball machine filled with gum. It should be a fun Christmas morning for him and his siblings.
