Carne asada tacos at our house, every major holiday.
May just have a new band name here
I simply answered the question what had I done today without reading the thread, for which I'm sorry. My post was pretty upbeat for a thread about one of our friend's final days. I wish him well, and hope that somehow he gets better. It can happen. One of my neighbors went to Michigan to see her mother for the final time, her family said come quick she has two days at the most. My friend flew back there, the family came in and said their final goodbyes. That was five weeks ago, and Grandma is doing better now than she has in a long time. They think just seeing her family again all together kind of jump started her.
Not much of this year has gone to suit me. I probably should be in a tither, but I'm not. I'm only a few years behind Slowpoke, and I figure any day could be the beginning of the end. I don't dwell on it, it'll be here soon enough. I try and find something to enjoy each day. My wife and I have endured loses on both sides of our family, and together, but we journey on. I wish Slowpoke the best possible outcome for the situation he finds himself in.
Beginning March I popped down to see the dude in IT to ask if he’d set up a VPN connection for me. “Because of COVID?” He said? “Don’t be ridiculous, it will have blown over in a few weeks”.... luckily I persisted, and have been home ever since. We’ve had some ups and downs, but have managed a massive home-improvement project, I’ve bought a new guitar and amp and built a brand new pedalboard, my playing has improved massively, and we’ve had some lovely time bonding with our 7 year old. Work-wise I spent two months on Furlough, right at the beginning, but was the first to be called back. We’ve discovered some lovely walks in the local area, some nice places to go, and to be honest I don’t miss the office at all (other than the eye-candy of course).
guitar-wise my favourite guitar is now my telecaster, Nathalie. Waiting for a new bridge to arrive, she’s been slowly customised so the only original bits are the body and neck.
I say ‘slowly’.... I bought her in August
No reason to feel sorry TD.
Slowpoke wants to read our posts to feel a part of us. It's all good my freind.
Let's celebrate life for him.
I've been handing out Lasagna all day like its Halloween.
I have one stipulation though:
Return my Tupperware !!!!
Or else I am like the Soup [email protected]! On Seinfeld:
NO SAUCE FOR YOU !!!!
Yes, I am an Italian Sauce Queen.
I have to spread it around when I make a huge batch of it.
Just had Thanksgiving dinner #1. I was cooking from about 8:00 this morning (and yes, it was just me and my wife). Turkey, gravy, sweet potatoes, green beans, and farro salad. (Recipes available on request.) And dry Riesling, of course.
Now to clean it all up and get ready for leftovers...a/k/a Thanksgiving dinner #2.
@FenderGyrl I used to do lasagne with the ex and the ex-in-laws...I guess I'm getting more traditional in my old age.
How was your day, @Jupiter ?
my house smells amaze. so many good smells, the puppy is playing, ballgames on, I'm going for a walk.... @kelnet what is new with you? @BigDaddyLH when is canadian thanksgiving and will you be having tofurkey?
Don’t really know what to say, today’s been positive. Had a rest day today, hope everyone else is doing well.
Have some tasks to do but keep putting them off, need to just do them. Working on TEFL qualification to teach english and need to officially accept my new uni offer to start in January. Looking forwards to start studying psychology if it goes well might go for a career in it. If it doesn’t, I’ll have teaching English as a backup. Not far from finishing the English teaching course but my level of interest in the topic puts me off haha. I’ll slug through it & complete it eventually by January though.
@getbent hows this for a backyard buddy?
The day I took that he was tussling with a 10-pointer. Guess who won...
Not yet but his facial expression is saying "If my pants don't re-appear within the next 30 seconds it's gonna' rain down hard in this muggy fuggy"
We didn't this year, but we often do sushi for Christmas and/or Thanksgiving!
Sadly the stratmaster is currently out of commission, it's been without strings for 2 months. I was designing a pickup for a friend and used the humbucker in the guitar to determine what the normal phase is for a standard humbucker, accidentally broke a wire in the process but have been too busy to fix it.
I will get around to it eventually but for the time being I'm balancing uni, work, a few pedal projects for another friend and I'm building a wall hanger for 5 guitars for myself. Luckily I have a few other good guitars.
@tubelectron, are you working on any amps at the moment?
Great Posts Everybody ...
Your all the best
My day was just yer basic work day. T-giving isn't a holiday here. I did get some bench press, standing press, bent rows and dips in after school though.
I also bought a turkey at Costco for Christmas dinner: that'll be my present to the family, as usual.
I haven't been keeping up as much here as I used to, but I've been wondering how ol' @1955 is doing these days. We haven't had proper riffage from him for a while...
Oh, wait, guess he's still got it!
I was thinking about IMing my buddy @24 track ....
Maybe he can post a pic of the Keith Emerson Synthesizer he has created...
The mans a Mad scientist I tells ya !!!
All of my kids are in lock down as one or the other has a cold or exposure to the Rona. We had a quiet dinner of a roasted bird,stuffing, mashed tatters gravy from the bird, coarrots and green I made my 1st apple pie. We’ve got left overs for a week.
This has been a fourtunate year for my health and our deli. We’ve survived and thrived on takeout and delivery. Being retired I’ve indulged in my guitar, and music library, built a few VW engines, and rebuilt my reloading and bullet casting spaces.
It’s been a good year,
Just cuz you asked so nicely! scientist no , Mad most certainly! LOL
Ive added three modules to the eurorack portion four more to go ( not in these photos )
Amen to that for sure.
Hey FG, just a quick one I now refer to full tear down repairs as going "Full Fendergyrl "on my guitars.LOL ( much respect, kiddo)
there are some cool wise people on this site , makes it a joy to log into every day !
I often wonder what @Larry F is upto such a wealth of knowledge and a joy on this site
nice pic , I saw a 5 pointer and 2 3pointers sparing in the back yard facinating to watch it was like dad teaching the boys how to box.
