  • Anybody Get Anything Good For Christmas?.....

    My wife and I haven't exchanged Christmas gifts in a long time. We usually buy ourselves whatever we want throughout the year.......so, when Christmas rolls around, we can't think of anything we'd like to get that we don't already have.



    We have more fun spending money on gifts for the grandchildren. Watching their faces light up is all the "Christmas gift" we need.



    I did, however, buy myself an early present back in late October when I got the Martin D-15M. Other than that, I didn't need or want anything of a musical nature. My daughter gifted me with a small bottle of my favorite bourbon over the weekend, but it's already gone!



    I'd still like to hear what some of you got for Christmas, though. Any new guitars out there?.......mandolins?.......fiddles?......ukes?. ......straps?....tuners?........strings? Tell us about it.
    Three Dreads......2 Martins and 1 YamahaA fiddle, a mando, a uke, eight harmonicas, a Zoom H2, a Panasonic recorder, coupla penny whistles, an Italian made Titano accordion, three handguns, at least a dozen chess sets, more power tools than Bob Vila, and one old Westclox "Big Ben" wind-up alarm clock that still works! Oh, BTW, I forgot to mention my ocarina and maracas.

    Gratitude. If something's priceless, does it still have value?

      Lots of good stuff, all not very expensive. My home studio is complete...my wife bought me a lava lamp!

          My goal was/is to be "Campfire Good".

          What's "campfire good"? I've been around some campfires where the players were pretty good.

          So if that is "campfire good"...and that is my goal...Then I guess I'll stick to "candle good" until I improve...

                          I received a pair of Optical White Low Top Chuck Taylors, a gray flannel sheet set, a black Flexfit sweat wicking baseball cap, pack of guitar picks, a titanium spork, a buttload of tools, and a few old Ronson Whirlwinds.



                          Oh and these:

                          Last but not least my loving sister bought me 2 new Rocksmith cables so my lady friend and I can play together with bass and guitar.

                            Sorry, no musical things...but I got new socks, underwear, a rice cooker, and a new coffee grinder...all stuff I needed.

                            To me Xmas is about the kids. Got to share some happiness with them.
