It's my birthday today and I'm heading in to a guitar shop in Honolulu for my first lesson with my new '52 RI!!!! WOOOOHHHOOOO!!!! Then right over to the North Shore for some surfing, lunch and a few beers. All bittersweet though, I've been away from my wife and little girl for 17 months now with only a few breaks in work to stop by and spend some time with them. Actually, more bitter than sweet but Hawaii makes it a little easier. Off to my lesson!!!
