    How many? I'm not sure, either. Depends on definitions, I suppose. But then I was never very good at that kind of "story" math... :confused::rolleyes:;) My wife and I had three children, and they have given us 19 grandchildren to date. Our eldest has three (now all in their early to mid 20s)...

    Congrats. It's a great feeling, isn't it? You said, "New Grand Baby Day." Not, "First Grand Baby Day." So am I correct in assuming that you have more than one grandchild. If so, how many?

    What are you asking from Santa this year?

    Not what this forum usually talks about, but since you asked... ...a Ruger Redhawk model #5060, 8-rounds in .357 mag.

    Got your holiday lights up?

    Christmas lights/decorations? Bah! Humbug! 🤨 Kidding...sort of... 😉 We're never in a hurry to put up lights or anything, because for my wife and me it's just been the two of us for Christmas. Our kids don't come "home" for Christmas anymore. We'd love it if they all did, but it just hasn't...

    A description of a Job once gone, will always be remember. What's Yours?

    Gil, you just made me realize that Buddy never shared that part of the story! 😲🤨😉 But if there was ever anybody who could talk a cop out of writing a ticket, my money's on Buddy.

    A description of a Job once gone, will always be remember. What's Yours?

    I used to be a truck driver. At different times I drove for different industries, oil companies and paper/chemical deliveries. I have two stories from those days that are competing in my mind for inclusion here. I'll share both of them and let you decide which one best fits the parameters of...

    I don't enjoy dancing

    I don't dance. I can't dance. If there was ever proof positive of this, it was the time I was asked to stop dancing in a Pentecostal church. True story. I was really getting into the worship, and they had some dance troupe or something. As the music and choreography progressed, others were...

    Hohner Owners

    The rack and the room (studio) both look great, both classy and functional. The fact that your HG-905 came from Lee makes it all the more special, in my book. I too have a 905 that came from Lee. It hangs next to my MiJ Hohner G-940, which I bought new in 1983. Which of those two Hohner dreads...

    I did watch/listen to that brief video clip. That was some mighty fine playing. As for the tone, I should probably go back and find it and watch again. But I remember even at the time thinking "vintage tele tones." I know what you mean about not being 100% sold initially on pickups but...

    It’s the quiet ones ya gotta watch…

    I'm gonna cut ya a break and assume that last word is a typo.

    It’s the quiet ones ya gotta watch…

    In my case, it’s my wife of 49 years. she’s no shrinking violet, and she can be quite chatty if she knows you or is really comfortable with her environment. But she is essentially more introvert than extrovert. And yet she is quite capable of making quips that are positively startling coming...

    Vox Pathfinder 15R -Foot Switch to control the tremolo.

    Like Chiogtr4x, I never use mine. I don't find the size of the pedal off-putting. I suppose there are smaller 2-button footswitches out there, but this VOX one doesn't take up much stage real estate (the size of the stage and how much gear is on it being factors, of course). I have 3 Pathfinder...

    Must I move the mulch much?

    The wood chip gardening method we're following is articulated in this video.

    Must I move the mulch much?

    If I had to pay her according to what's she's worth, I couldn't afford her.

    Must I move the mulch much?

    I’ve posted threads periodically that speak of the farming endeavors me and Mrs. Berean are into. Those endeavors consist of keeping chickens and quail and rabbits and gardening. On the latter subject, a few days ago my wife spotting some tree trimmers (with the apropos name of The Tree Amigos)...

    Just Bought My Halloween Costume

    Halloween?!? Bah! Humbug! I don't do Halloween. All it represents to me is little demons and diabetes in the making. One of my grandsons was born mid October, so as a young boy a few of his birthday parties were costume parties. I dressed up as Gandalf the Gray. In recent years, I have been...

    My Mom’s coming to visit…

    Actually, both my parents were twins. From the pics above obviously my Mom and my aunt were identical. My Dad and my uncle were fraternal twins. Dad always felt close to his twin brother, and in his youth idealized the notion of marrying someone who was also a twin. So the story goes that in...

    Logan Custom Guitars Club

    Well Bob, I'd like to talk more about the move you're making, but I'm a little distracted. Have been for a few days, actually. Tomorrow morning, Beth and I are driving up to pick up my Mom to spend 8-9 days with us here in Corpus Christi. (I started a thread about that here.) So we've been...

    My Mom’s coming to visit…

    WOW! Yeah, life's kicked me in the teeth a few times, and I've lost loved ones. But I know I had a good childhood. I've long realized that I am blessed beyond anything I'll ever deserve. Even losing my Dad young to cancer (as I said earlier), I treasure the relationship we had, and the impact he...

    My (latest) "Here's your sign" moment...

    I took my wife to pick up her car from the dealership after an oil change. We got all the way there before she realized she left her phone at home. She was going to run a couple of errands before returning home. I, OTOH, had Bella with me in the truck so I came straight back home. When I got...

    My Mom’s coming to visit…

    That description sounds positively Biblical to me. And lest we stray too far into forbidden discussion territory, "That's all I've got to say about that."

    My Mom’s coming to visit…

    Yeah, what happened to me, right? There's a reason I hide my face behind a bush of whiskers. In the looks department, me and my brothers took after my Dad. A few years ago, I ran into an old friend of my parents in a local restaurant. He came up to our table and asked me, "Which one of Harlan's...

    My Mom’s coming to visit…

    Thanks. I'd like to think she's proud of me. What musical talent I have is owing to my parents, both in terms of nature and nurture. Dad played guitar and sang, Mom sang with her twin sister in a trio before she ever met my Dad in college. For a decade before I took up the guitar myself, I...

    My Mom’s coming to visit…

    There's two steps up to the third "step" or landing to the apartment's entrance. I'll be walking Mom up and down the steps while she's here. If she comes to live with us, we'll install a new step system with handrails.
