    Same thing I’m doing today. Some guitar and some reading and winding down with my wife and kiddos.

    84 miles on a 1985 steel bicycle. I have no explanation as to why, but that's what happened.

    Long bicycle ride. Lots of exploring around the lakes in the area. It was hot out.

    Went to a flea market, then to my son's Auto Zone store and spent $296 on brakes and rotors and threaded body clips for my pickup, went home and installed my $75 Facebook marketplace score factory Ford running boards on the truck, then got on the mower and mowed and ran the weedeater and various other yard things.

    I had a gig from 2-5. It was my 8th gig in 9 days... totally wiped me out. Then a gourmet dinner (not really) with my GF.

    A bucket of KFC, followed by apple pie and Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla ice cream. Then NASCAR while I did some more rehab on a pair of Acoustic Research AR-5s I "stole" from my local Goodwill earlier in the week.

    I worked on my friends 12 string with a neck like a banana. I really thought the neck was toast, and even started a thread about it. However, when I went to her house today, it turns out the neck has straightened itself out, when we tuned it back up to pitch today, it has about 10 thousandths of relief at A440. It was at 16 thousandths. We shall see if the neck goes back to banana territory.

    Took Son and daughter-in-law to Rib City for BBQ, then watched first 2 episodes of Vikings Season 6, then mowed lawn ahead of weather from approaching tropical storm, then drank a couple beers while noodling on guitar.

    If you get it working, can you go back in time and develop it sooner?

    Just another day for me, although at around 3 am Monday I started wondering what kind of explosives were being used and where they got them.
    One was strong enough to rattle the windows, they aren't fireworks, unless someone is buying the commercial mortars.
