    Just last night I had a few beers and bought Inversions (Stevie Wonder) album off ebay for $10.00 delivered. Original album from '73.

    I did buy my old Variax guitar while 3 sheets to the wind one Thanksgiving. As it turns out it was one of my better purchases and the only guitar I really regret selling.

    Only thing I ever bought while inebriated was more booze.

    I don't drink enough to get drunk anymore.

    Got tired of being broke and not remembering why.

    usually I just burn my fingers with hot solder or the tip of the iron. The big loupe gets in the way a lot when you're 3 sheets to the wind.

    I rarely drink.. I haven't bought anything just after drinking. Is that a good or bad sign about my impulse purchases? I can't use the excuse that I had been drinking.

    I used to drink. Woke up at 5 am in the middle of a truck weigh scale about 80 miles from where I should have been. No idea how I got there. I don't drink anymore and I don't know how I got here. Guess it wasn't the booze.

    In Texas if you know beans about chili, you know chili ain't got no beans....

    Isn't the "Yellow Rose of Texas" the Texas national song?

    The reason I don't really sing has a lot to do with it, actually.

    I'm working on it.
