The wife wanted a guitar for Christmas last year but that was expensive so I thought why not make her one. Heck I built a drum once using just an empty oatmeal bow and wooden spoon. I mean, how hard could it be. I even made the strings and to save even more money, instead of buying inlay, I painted the inlay. Is that sick or what?

I might just go into the Luthier business. Now if I can just get Slash or Eric to endorse my work I’m golden.

Can you believe my wife is afraid to even try to play this. She says it’s a bit small , women!

8) The chicks dig it.
But I don’t abuse the power of the beard. I use it only for good and for hiding an occasional skittle.

Related? Could be. You do resemble my sister but then her beard is thicker.

Eww, is right, but then if the local bar advertised this I might misunderstand. (Appoligies in advance) JADOM

I already challenged Griz to a length contest. My bear as of today measures 3” from chin to tip. He hasn’t responded, the chicken.

You sure, I thought all Canadianers sported a fair beard this time of year. One of my favorite lines that annoys my wife is:
Know love like you’ve never known love before~ Goose a Moose or
Know fear like you’ve never known fear before~ Goose a Moose
and so on feel free to add your own
