    I just did a rough count and I've posted about 70 times in the last troubled fortnight. Some sense, some nonsense. Some posts liked, some not, and one has probably rightly drawn a little flack. But it's really helping me through, having this community to enjoy.

    So I just wanted to say thanks to TDPRI and all mods and contributors for making it the best forum on the web. I know I can join in discussions about nearly all my musical interests (Teles, Jazzmasters, Resonators, among others) and there'll be others who share them and have interesting and informative things to say. And lots of beautiful eye candy.

    This is my favourite guitar picture ever. It's by a member here "Bill" and is titled "The Good Life". I hope he doesn't mind me using it - it's the best way I can think of saying "Here's health to you all!"

    Whoa ... careful. That Tele looks like it's about to take out a nice bottle of Scotch. 12 year old single malt at that.

    That picture is from TDPRI member "Bill."

    I've been drooling over that one for 15 years probably. Love that guitar and that picture. And I call first dibs if he ever decides to sell it. :D

    Thanks, I’m glad you like that pic and the guitar in it. Which I still have of course! That guitar and that amp—and that scotch while it lasted—represented my happy place.

    and another great thing: here at TDPRI, there's no nudity! i mean considering it's mostly males over 40, that's a good thing. don't you think?

    I dunno. I've still got my barrel chest. It's just a lot lower these days.
