    Jupiter, my friend, I have been laughing all day over this.... :)

    I guess, at heart, I'm still six years old....

    May the Force be with You!

    I'm not dead yet.

    Just been busy with far too much real life stuff.
    I was laid off back in June and managed to start a new job in August.
    I got to deal with the coworker from hell who hated my guts and was constantly trying to get me fired because he was so insecure.
    Fast forward to December and they let him go and gave me a promotion and we got to hire my best friend and former coworker of 15 years to be the other half of my department.

    My wife and I also had number 5 back in November,

    Time to get back at it.

    Yep,

    It used to be the other way around but I had to sell all my guitars to pay for these kids :p

    I've still got my Taylor acoustic but all the electrics are gone.

    No more electrics? ! ! !
    Well, I guess you can always build one yourself once your situation improves.

    Good to see you back buddy. Conrats on no. 5. If I'm not mistaken, that's two since you started this thread! You know what causes that, right?

    I noticed that the thing about starting a child project is that unlike mandolins and military-themed guitars, is that once started, they tend to run right to completion, no delays, no time off, no "gotta wait for payday for parts". Main difference is you only get pictures of the completed project. (And that's not all bad!)

    Congrats on a beautiful project completion, Josh!

    Welcome back, Josh! Can we kill off JarJar now?



    What, too soon?
