    A microphone stand with a mic on it is very much a Lestivus Pole.
    If something is too hard to do, then it's not worth doing. You just stick that guitar in the closet next to your short-wave radio, your karate outfit and your unicycle and we'll go inside and watch TV.

    Ya know, if you add a cable and PA you could preach the gospel while crooning.

    DOH! I forgot because it arrived early - my sister-in-law got me the Tremonti instructional video.

    I think it's defective, though, because when I select PLAY on the menu, a message pops up that says, "Dude, just give it up already." Then it goes back to the main menu.

    please tell me where you got this, that is ingenious and beats the heck out of the cut off hockey stick I have been using for a log poker.

    And we took the annual picture in front of the tree...and if I could attach it, I'd post it. Haven't sent it to my web space yet.

    Wedge, I'll have to ask Santa. I was using a dandelion poker previously (which also serves as my mushroom hunting stick......No, not the ones from Mexico).

    Not much in the musical vein, except this:


    The camera was a surprise from the wife. We weren't doing real gifts this year (new appliances took precedence). She broke the rules... But it's OK.she'll get as much use as I will. As a photographer, work had really burned me out and I rarely get the camera out at home. I think this is her way of saying I need to take more photos of the wee one!

    I had a rather tough year between medical/surgical garbage as always and work offering some challenges, so Santa decided I've been an awfully good boy! This year he gave me the following:

    Paid off PS 4264:











    PRS Archon inbound soon enough:





    This CU24 Wood Library also dropped into my lap:




    Despite the year having some rough moments (understatement of the year haha), at least it seems like I'm ending on a high note!
