You should be happy you still have hair, excluding nose and ears anyway. 

 

Before you move the Phillippines be sure to buy plenty of sunscreen to take with you. :P

When your hearing test is done and you realize that you've been giving advice and touting what tweeters are the best and you can't hear anything over 7000 anyway. 
Right on.

Bruce my brother ... thought of you yesterday while on the Sweetwater Music website.  I’ve played a Godin only briefly (years ago at a Guitar Center).  Wondering if you had any experience with them?  Nearly pulled the trigger on an American made Telecaster.  My first guitar was a 76 telecaster thin line semi-hollowbody ... and i regret giving it away. Now, I feel the need to eventually have another Tele.  My biggest want now is a 12 string though, so that will probably come first. As you know, acoustically, I’m a Taylor loyalist; but, since life has been a bit different the past year, i haven’t picked up a guitar since October, so $3000+ for a nice Taylor may not be the wisest move until I get back to playing again.

Steve, my last electric was a Godin LP90 and had the best intonation and feel. I bought it used for $350. Was a great guitar but I just didn't need it. One of my favorites was a Gibson ES-140 like the one shown below (it's not mine). Only paid $100 for it including the brown case with pink lining. The body is about the size of an LP but a hollowbody. About a 3/4 scale neck.

 

I would love one of the new Taylor Grand Pacific 717 or 517 round shoulder models.

thanks ... at the store, i thought the Godin sounded and felt nice. Nice Gibson.  I have the Epiphone version of the ES-175 and it’s hands down the best bang for my buck that i’ve ever bought. Had it for years and i think i paid $399 brand new. I have a few left that i really just want ... replace the Tele that i got rid of; a 12 string Taylor or Guild; Rickenbacker, and a Duesenberg.  Of all those on my list ... the Duesenberg is the most costly.

Do you ever give a cashier an odd extra amount, so your change will be an even $10 or $20 or whatever?  That used to be a routine thing to do, but it baffles most modern cashiers.  I even had a late-twenties, likely university-educated man on the cash at a bookstore tell me, “I can’t do negative math this late in the day.”   Apparently, subtraction is now called negative math...

 

You know you’re old when you pick up your Dark Side of the Moon LP and realize that you bought it 46 years ago.

Sure, it’s costly, but it’s a Duesie!  That’s where the later “It’s a doozy!” expression came from.  A Duesenberg car was always very special.

When you see what concert tickets cost now to watch a bunch of old folks. I saw AC/DC and Molly Hatchet for 7.50! Thats one good thing. We saw all the great bands on the cheap and could smoke pot during the show!

Not totally true. I started out purchasing 45 rpm singles with my part time job after grammer school like ~ 47 years ago. Years later i progressed to vinyl albums. 45 rpm had two sides, two singles, and used a yellow plastic center insert to play on a turntable or portable stereo (my older sister's).
