    I just realised that I became eligible for the TDPRI over 60s club over a year ago. I'm not sure I want to join and admit it though. Always nice to see you @TheGreenHornet. :)

    And Katy Kerry thanks you..but wants financial compensation for digging you out of that hole over at the Gibson forum way back yonder. Maybe you can pass her the buck.;)

    I used to hate white guitars. My friend explained what it was all about. 1. It is a very formal color, as black is. 2. Additionally, it shows up on stage better than all others colors. White is a great choice! Now, Katy Perry. That is one nice picture of her. Very beautiful woman.

    I'm still old! And not dead yet.

    But speaking of the lockdown, I only recently got my hair cut, after like a year and a half of letting it go. I vowed to play at least one gig looking like a hippie.

    With the goldtop Gretsch Pro Jet.

    Enjoy every day of your life. Soon you will be old and think where did all the time go by so fast? Now I am fighting fibromyalgia and lewy body disease. My skills on guitar have plummeted, my memory is going but I still have a love for guitars and music. I really cannot contribute to forums on advice anymore. It has been years since I have played in a band, but when I did I could play with fire. I miss those days so I suggest enjoy them while you can. :)

    Mojo sent! :thumb: I'm 63 and relatively healthy (despite having had throat cancer about 11 years ago, and having had my jaw fall apart due to the radiation treatments, being rebuilt about 6 years back). I still bar-gig some, occasionally record, and am thinking about doing a weekly church gig again. My main band is in tatters (two guys got married and moved, and the married guy separated and moved!), but I'm working on that. ;)

    Wise words @TheGreenHornet , and I hope you'll keep in touch with the rest of us when you can. I'm really sorry to hear of your medical conditions, but I hope that if they have names, that means they're being treated.

    Oddly enough, I was thinking about this thread only a couple of days ago. I'm grateful for the 'bump' and the subsequent posts, because it's made me realise how many half-completed musical projects I would like to see finished before I lose the ability. Thanks for the kick up the butt! :thumb::thumb::thumb:

    Good to hear from you. Oftentimes I have wanted to pull this thread up but couldn't find it.
    Thanks to your recent post I found it.
    Prayers for all the health issues.

    I think about it every now & again but it wasn't until @TheGreenHornet showing up in a thread that enabled me to actually follow through with a bumper. :rolleyes:
