    Wonderful timeline photos of you, your great looking kids, and of course the Tele just that keeps on trucking.

    Great family timeline - and , you kept it ?

    I've had three and there was always something that kept me from letting them stick around.

    But the pickups - wow.

    Great post

    Great post, very fun to see the progression over the years, thanks.

    Would it kill you to crack a smile once in a while? :)

    That guitar stand is sure aging well.

    But yeah, have you thought about changing your facial expressions for photos? :):D

    Chip,
    Such a great story on your Tele and family around it.

    Having children, God has blessed you with the gift of life.

    Watch the Muddy Waters concert in Newport with Pee Wee Russell, about 1960.

    All the best,

    Great idea for a thread. 2017 has a sort of American Gothic vibe going on to my eyes. :D

    Fret,you gave me a great idea!

    When Grace moves away for college in a few years I'll replace her with a cardboard cut like the Dead did with Jerry at their induction to the R&R Hall of Fame....

    How COOL, Chip! Thanks for sharing those pics.

    My mother's and grandmother's names were Grace, too. Beautiful name.

    You are a blessed man and father. Congrats on your beautiful family and you Tele!
