Clowns, so many clowns, but it is good to laugh.
I'm not the handy-with-glue-and-clamps-type, so I will not be attempting my own repairs.
Thanks, everyone, for the opinions and suggestions. I'll be out of reach now for a couple of weeks, playing my borrowed guitar in snowy New Mexico, beyond the reach of technology. I'll check in with the Mudcat again when I return. Sorry, breezy, no time to get a photo up, but I'll post one if you like when I get back.
