    My question is how are you going to get close enough to tape your proof of start sign to him? :eek::lol:

    This is going to be an amazing build!

    I wonder... after your last guitars, how can you ever come up with a more original idea? (except for the one who's thinking of a concrete guitar top... :p)

    I do not wish you luck for the force is already with you (so good luck, i'll check it on a regular base ;))

    I'm sorry Mr Lee, you are in violation of the "Proof of Start" rule. The Proof of Start document has to be plainly visible in your picture, being held in your hand by a death grip inside the Gator does not count.

    Scatter Lee, glad we'll have another opportunity to learn
    from you.

    I've already learned that gators and turtles like to hang out
    together. :eek:

    I'll enjoy your build, open creative inspiring. Lookin' forward to it.

    ps: meanwhile please mosey down to the beach and taste the incoming tide, is it fresh or salty? I'm wondering if Hurricane season has started yet?

    Hmmmm,

    That marriage is either gonna turn out Allurtles or Turtigators. Throw on a little Barry White and let nature do its thing..... Very creative place your neck of the swamp is.
