    Morning Rich! Two jack plates...ha!

    And good news. Weather forecasts had me thinking I’d see a couple delivery delays but the Englishman Bo is still scheduled for tomorrow delivery. Penguin Bo’s has been bumped to Monday. This will allow me to devote the weekend to the handmade girl exclusively.

    Time to toss and expletive in front of the wow.

    This Beautiful BA Princess was due Friday, then Monday. Chatted with Fedex Monday as their truck drove by and tracking wasn't looking good. Individual told me it was on its way and guaranteed arrival before 6p. Fedex guy showed up a bit later and dropped off a TPS for my warn out old Ranger (not Capt. Call or Gus, a Ford).

    Driver came in and made a call, took my number. Texted this morning and as I was in a unique loction at work they were able to deliver to me there. Didn't need to aclimate much, hours later she was warm enough to open indoors.

    Billy Bo is for Sunday Go to Meetings. Red and I will tear things up Friday and Saturday night.

    3 white GreTsch's, 3 different finishes. Big girl's poly. Doesn't show well in the pic but there's a larger difference in shade between her and the little Princess.

    Do you walk 47 miles of barb-wire, or wear a cobra snake for a neck tie?
    How about a brand new house on the roadside, made of rattlesnake hide with a brand new chimney built on top made out of a human skull?
    Just curious...

    Double congratulations on two gorgeous guitars!

    You sir demonstrate much more maturity than I. My expletive preface to ‘wow’ in this instance is a 2 syllable word...
