I fell asleep to “Haley Williams” the album “Petals for Armor” EP, followed by “Royal Blood” the album “Royal Blood”


I still felt a bit nauseous Wednesday but went on with my exercises.  I’ve managed to keep food & water down since Sunday but as of Wednesday I still had the chills followed by intense sweating.  I think this climate change thing is SERIOUSLY messing with me.  Is it gonna be hot or cold out?  It’s February in Regina it should be -15 Celcius not +1 Celcius.  I can’t wait until its +12 Celcius outside so I can light up the A/C like nobody’s business, sit in the dark, play guitar, and watch baseball.

Really hadn’t recovered from being sick last weekend.  Thought I’d make it through the week though.  Woke up late am Thursday had breakfast & went back to bed.  Nothing in me at all.  I figured I’d rather be productive than just going through the motions & say “Good enough”.  Quality over quantity.

The guitar I ordered is another example of quality over quantity.  This video shows the difference between a lesser expensive PRS guitar & a top of the line PRS.  The one I ordered is somewhere in the middle of that price range, but still made at the American factory in Maryland.  I could have bought 1 mass produced $700 guitar & maybe a couple more in the distant future, or get a very nice, well made, fairly expensive guitar.  I went with the quality of the product here.  I have a few $700 guitars & they’re great, I have no complaints about them.  If this is going to be my last guitar purchase, I might as well go off with a bang!

I’m ecstatic about the guitar coming in April, bad timing though.  Brewster just got back from the veterinarian Wednesday night & now we see how much money we can squeeze out of our rock.  Vet bills, heart medication for the rest of his life, taxes, guitar, more vet bills, dog teeth removed, etc.  Yet our house is still for sale & that possibility is always looming in the background.  If I could cancel my guitar to free up some cash it would be done already.  Where is the money going to come from?  We’ll space it out as much as we can over the next 3 or 4 months.  His dental work isn’t a rush, but his heart medication is.

Breaking news, Thursday afternoon, regarding my guitar order, a blessing in disguise really.  Got an update moments ago.  My guitar has been delayed until late August.  Sounds like they have to make more guitars to fill the orders?  I expected a delay after hearing Paul Redd Smith saying they were flooded with orders in January at the trade show in California.  What this means for us is, more time for us to spread out our cash over a few more months.  Ended up being the best outcome for the situation.

Woke up late again today.  Had breakfast & I’m still aching & tired.  I’s hoping this is just my body’s way of saying “Too much!  I’m not used to this & I need a break”.  I’d like to get back on track next week.  I’ve even been too lazy to pick up a guitar & play with any productive effort.  I messed around on my acoustic for a bit since it weighs the least.  Waste of a week!

I didn’t even realize the “Haley Williams” EP was out already!!!!


If you’re getting this through Facebook, give it a like or other reaction, or share it.  That’s the only way of promoting this site, since I’m not profiting from this in any way.
