    Not mine. I can’t take most anti inflammatories. Some of my family is also allergic to most local antiseptics. We have a different relationship with pain.

    I have a ton of unused vacation days. So many, I’ll likely end up taking payout on a couple weeks worth. I’d like to say that’ll go to a new guitar, but probably not. I have other stuff that I need to do with the house and pay some things off.

    The Wife's working this year as she's a care worker which gives me the opportunity to do absolute Jack, play guitar and get sent to the naughty step. ( what Bliss).!!!

    Headed to Texas to visit the oldest and his wonderful family. (Just outside Houston)…return to work late next week...
    Driving down with the Daughter and her Hubby and our youngest (who's 24) from Maryland.
    Hoping the kids inherited some of their mother and my love of driving,
    seeing the sites, and good conversations. I guess we'll see??!!??
    Not much guitar playing in the immediate future, but I'm ok with that.

    To those that are Retired, or soon-to-be: Enjoy the livin' hell out of it!!!!!!!

    Side note about my retirement. My company normally gives a really nice watch but since I don't wear one they asked me what I wanted. I am getting a 32 channel digital recorder and a alesis sr 18 drum machine!! I love that company. I'll upload some music once I figure it out

    I took Christmas week off the last seven years, but the team I'm on now has to stagger time off, so I took last week instead. Stayed around the house and tried to do as little as possible in order to destress and relax.

    In-laws came this weekend and took the kiddo back to FL with them for the next two weeks, so that's a semi-vacation for me and Mrs. right there! Plus I'm working from home all this week since half the company will be out of the office.

    That's cool! I've watched my company do some really nice things for people retiring too.

    It's incredible to see companies doing things like that in this day and age.

    We're shutting down the factory for nine days. We've been busting butt, so this is a much needed break. I plan on polishing off the remainder of the Christmas cookies, playing some guitar and practicing lots of yoga.

    My company doesn’t do anything like that. I’ll be lucky if I don’t get kicked on the way out!

    In the midst of two weeks off. I needed it. Did a lot of string changing the first couple days. Going to try to make some headway with a couple recordings the rest of this week, as long as the finger cooperates. Finished off one jigsaw puzzle last night, may do another this week.

    Permission to use this for the name of my 2019 guitar driven record? I'll give you credit in the notes.

    Just off 24-26th and New Year's Eve and Day.

    Our office is technically closed this week for the "music industry winter break" but month/year end close still needs to be done.

    Oh, it happened. A lot at 3 AM-ish times. Space shuttle cockpit. 1000 pieces. You can see a bit of the glare we deal with when we build. The pain on this one was the borders (not edges) on the right and left - those pieces all tended to blend together. I upped the contrast a bit in this pic, but if you're not looking straight on at those sections, they really look monochromatic.

    Next up, if we build another this week...Shawn's favorite band (most likely).

    Looks like how Les would imagine his ideal recording console from the 70’s!

    The 70’s was the best time for recording consoles.
