    I felt like mentioning some of these things to you guys. I decided it was easier to do it all in one thread. First off, I've been working at a job which I took on to make some extra cash for my wedding. It was supposed to be part time but it quickly developed into a '7 days a week' kind of thing. Needless to say, I haven't had much time for anything else but hey, I'll take it while I can get it.

    Also, I had mentioned in another thread that my fiances car got hit in our driveway. They still didn't find the culprit but we finally replaced her car with a 2003 VW Jetta wagon. It's pretty nice.... she parks it in the yard.

    2 days after the car got hit, our computer died. We've been using this crappy old laptop while we wait for our new (refurbished) Mac. That was not a fun week.

    And finally, I had to order a few pieces from guitar fetish for a friends guitar, so I took the opportunity to add one of their new mini-trons to my shopping cart. It arrived today and by the look of it, I'm fairly happy with it. I had a filtertron cover laying around so I slipped it over and the polepiece screws fall right into place. I may just swap the covers out. Either way, it's going into a tele body with a real filtertron that I have laying around.

    As soon as the new computer comes, I'll be able to put pictures up and do a 1 to 1 comparison of the filtertron and mini-tron. Anyway, that's what's new 'round these parts.
