    Listened to cricket, read some Stephen King and generally buggered about on TDPRI, where I spend at least half of my time anyway.

    Sunday was down in Devon. A little place called Newton Ferrers (across from Noss Mayos, near Plymouth). My wife’s first cousin lives in their grandparents home and my wife was christened in the little church in the village. We walked the cliffs, met various people, ate very good food. I played a Martin D35 very poorly.

    Monday morning, still in Newton Ferrers, did a minor setup on my wife’s other cousin’s son’s guitar. He’s 14 and he’s got a Squier Mustang in Daphne Blue. Apparently he is really good on the guitar. He was at his first day of school so I did a little setup and a new set of strings and then took it for a test drive. Man, I love that guitar! I played it for about 2 hours after it was all set up. I was inspired so it may have sounded better than the Martin playing from the day before.

    Monday afternoon we went back up to London.

    Today (Tuesday) a health thing I have decided to flair up so I spent about 4 hours with National Health Services in London to get me some meds to tamp it the heck down. The NHS people on the phone, at emergency and at the health centre couldn’t have been nicer and they hooked me up with the appropriate treatment so I’m now good to go. Heading to Northern Scotland by train tomorrow.

    It’s nice to see ST back up and running smoothly now (touch wood).

    I never worry about it, I knew it would be up and running in a day or two.

    Played guitar, went mountain biking, created an account on TDPRI(cool people over there btw), and waited for my first ever tele to arrive.:whistling:

    Total coincidence with ST going down, creating a TDPRI account, and having a tele on the way, it was the perfect storm! Thanks for the GAS attack last week @vid1900 , I owe you one.

    NGD post coming soon...preview...tele arrived a couple hours ago, just finished my first session on it and it's friggin' sweeeet! The Iceman cometh!!! Full review to follow in another thread.

    Played more guitar. Which is a good thing.

    I did check back a bunch of times. But it was a busy weekend so that helped, too.

    actually registered on tdpri (the horror!) and mylespaul (lurking for over a decade) which was an anticlimax.
    emailed Rob about the issue got a response yesterday.
    nearly bought a w124 wagon (still might) instead of a new guitar
    returned to work after 2 weeks annual leave
    watched my home state go up in flames
    had a laugh at the Ashes result... how England screwed that one up is beyond belief, but still... It's payback for the convict insults.
    Watched Boris the Bullet dodger sack 21 members... the facist a-hole.
    Saw this over-hyped Landrover Defender release on youtube... static displays with useless POS urban suv matchbox models placed in a rural setting.
    Played my SG (rather swmbo's SG lol)
    played my JM
    procrastinated over a pedalboard build yet again
    actually had a good laugh with myself on TDPRI as I slowly wound them up about owning canoe paddles and snow shovels. They can at least enjoy the humour and are a tolerant bunch towards ST asylum seekers. Glad to see they have calmed down 'a bit' since I last lurked there.
    Chilled out with the fur kids and spoiled them a bit.
    procrastinated over meal decisions (what are we going to have for dinner? FIIK... )
    plus other relatively meaningless daily drivel things...

    Also,
    Mrs TD and I helped a homeless family secure an apartment, helped them get a used refridgerator, fed them two meals, and bought them a bed, a weeks groceries, and gave them some gently used items they needed to get started again, blankets, pots and pans, utensils, plates, cups, etc.

    Since getting the new acoustic, I've been getting back to some fingerpicking and bluegrass rhythm work. So I just did even more of that for a bit..............:D
