Pretty sure I was sick for a week (food poisoning) & then I just stuck with regular holidays in Saskatchewan.  Likely 9 days & weekends without exercising, yes I’m sore, tired, & looking forward to a 5 day weekend.

There is racism against black people in Canada.  Regina, Saskatchewan is a small city, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan is the biggest city in Saskatchewan.  From what I see on the news, there is more racism against black people in larger cities outside of Saskatchewan.  Here in Regina it is more towards the aboriginal community.  This is a delicate situation we’re in.  We can’t have the police not do their job, but we also need to see equal treatment for EVERYONE.  Racism is a real thing in Canada but I can’t find any history of it that is anywhere near the level the history or current state that America has!  I still say, keep up with the peaceful protests until there’s a change!

Not sure when my guitar will get here from Stevensville, Maryland, USA now?  The website says “When ordered, this item usually arrives at our warehouse within 210 business days (7 months). We will advise if there are any delays due to the Covid19 pandemic.” As of this moment if you order this guitar.  Mine was ordered on January 15th, 2020 with a shipping date of mid-April 2020 then delayed until August 21st, 2020 then Covid-19 happened.

I wouldn’t expect anyone to have an accurate date for the shipment of my guitar at this point?  I’m giddy about it, but I understand things aren’t normal right now & that even asking for a shipment date is kind of pointless.  My order is in the system, it’ll get here when it’s ready.  Merry Christmas to me??  Money is saved up as of last year for this…

S2 Custom 22 Semi-Hollow Body Guitar w/Gig Bag - McCarty Sunburst

There’s currently a (180 days) 6 month wait for the guitar I plan to order.  If I could put down 10% for the down payment, which mostly covers the 11% tax, I’d put the down payment in ASAP & order it, on the other side I won’t have the full payment in 6 months.  Good things come to those who wait I hope.  Hopefully an order will be placed by May or June 2021 if not earlier?

S2 McCarty 594 Electric Guitar with Gigbag - Faded Blue Smokeburst

Guitar first hands down!  Amplifier & footswitch can be purchased afterwards.  Packed up 4 grocery bags of DVDs.  One for the family cabin & 3 to pawn.  Also my mountain bike & Kim’s old mountain bike, since she just got a new bike.  Trade in 3 guitar pedals I don’t use as well, more money for the guitar!

NOW THEY’RE ALARMED????????????????????

I really need to stop watching any & all news!


Lamb of God released a self-titled album as their 10th album, if you include the 2 albums they released as “Burn the Priest”, FANTASTIC new album.  In Flames just released a 20th anniversary edition of their album “Clayman” with 5 new songs.  I’ve got the original, Swedish melodic death metal ages very well!  Between Lamb of God, In Flames, & Trivium, I’m listening to a TON of metal.

  1. You look great Chris! But I understand how you feel, people may say you look great, but you see what you see in the mirror. I was feeling fat and disgusted with image in the mirror and ppl would say “you’re not fat, you look great”. There was no convincing me, so I had to work hard to loose 30lbs. I’m happy with that, but Im not done yet. I truly think you look great but if you’re still not satisfied, keep on going until you are. You have to be happy with what you see. But you should be happy that you are making some progress.

    • Thanks! I was really expecting to see about 235 on the scale in muscle, a jump of 10 pounds instead of a loss of 13. I’ve never been muscular and that’s not what I’m looking for, just figured if muscle weighs more than fat that I’d see an increase in weight?
