I am also a little burnt out from work. I haven't had a week off since last September. That will change next week. I am headed back to Martha's Vineyard and I don't mind telling you I can't wait. I am fortunate to have such a nice place relatively close by. I can get away without really going too far or having it cost a small fortune. It's about an hour and a half drive to Cape Cod, then a 45 minute ferry ride to the island and about an 5 or six minute walk to the hotel. All the Memorial Day crowds will be gone (I hope) by the time we get there on Tuesday of next week. I can't wait.
Today I got a new toy. Did I need it? No. I already have six of them. What did I get? A new guitar. It didn't cost all that much as it is not a top of the line Gibson or Fender. Two of the biggest names in the manufacture of guitars. It's not a Gibson, my favorite brand, It's a copy of a Gibson that I would love to have but at about $2,700 it will never happen.
|A Gibson ES-335. About $2700.00|
| My reasonably priced Warwick copy.|
I do have a Gibson Les Paul though it's a low rung model that cost $1100.00 new. I bought it used back in 1984 for $300.00. It's still my favorite guitar. I played it in that little video I made last summer. All of this loot that I have spent is thanks to my federal tax return. When I return from my little trip I will have to put the brakes on spending. Boy it's fun though. Hey you do have to try and enjoy life and make yourself happy once in a while. By the way I tried to get both guitar pictures next to each other but just couldn't manage.
OK I'm off to play with my new toy.
Until next time,
I'm outta here.
