Do you have a question about stage 4 brain cancer?  Ask if you do!  

Exercise total for 5 days. 

500 Curls w/ 20 pound dumb bells

300 Shoulder raises/Chest presses w/ 10 pound dumb bells

1050 Crunches

900 Leg lifts

300 Squats   

600 Back flexes

My exercise has been VERY satisfying & the number of crunches in a week went from 900-1050/week.  It feels great to be able to work on my physical handicap, eat well & not be drinking!  Hard to get up this morning while Kim’s cocooned in the blankets & Brewster’s curled up & warm while snoring.

More pill refills headed my way this weekend, YAY!  How far away is the vaccine?  I have another 3 hour MRI sometime in May.

I woke up around 2:45ish am Wednesday night because I was hungry?  Weird since that’s never happened before.  I guess I was pretty excited to see baseball back Thursday too.  I got up, had some food & did my weights, everything felt good, ready for the game!

I decided to exercise today.  Kim has Monday off & I know I probably won’t want to get up on Monday & exercise.  This seemed like a more advantages day to exercise for me.  I did increase my repetitions of crunches by one extra set of 50 3 days a week.  Still no alcohol since January 30th of this year, & no foreseeable plans for it, no coffee either for I don’t know how long it’s been?

Kim’s getting a little frustrated with the back & forth conversation with Revenue Canada on our income tax.  When she worries, I worry.

We have no children, if we did that’s where any money would go.  So with time on my hands, likely being inside of our place most of the time & falling in love with guitar more than ever, that’s what I want to do as well as help out where I can.  I know the guitars I like but I also understand responsibility and affordability.  I quite like my less expensive choice, especially that Godin radiator.  Every time I look at it or hear samples of it, I get so excited!

I don’t care how low the price is on a guitar as long as it’s built well, it’s always a GREAT day!

Kim doesn’t like the music I play…it’s not pop/country?  Sheesh, tough crowd!

That’s a LOT of guitars!  Even if money wasn’t a factor I’d stop at 12 at most & Kim’s stubborn about getting stuff with her gift money.

I still like my original 3 choices of the S2 McCarty 595, the Godin radiator, & the Sterling Cutlass.  I know that I really like this Mark Morton signature Jackson Dominion but because of the price I’d have to say no even though there will be some here on the 26.  I think when I get older I’d prefer a PRS Core “Paul’s Guitar” in an “Orange Tiger” finish

I’d never be so bold to get a “Tremonti” Core PRS.  Since I know one “Alter Bridge” riff & chorus.  I’d consider a “Special semi hollow” instead but that’s a crazy amount of money, for any Core model!

The PRS S2 McCarty 594 in this “Whale Blue” finish

The Godin Radiator

Always the Sterling Cutlass!

I’d have to pass on this as much as I like it, because of the price.

I’d like the PRS S2 McCarty 594, the Godin Radiator, the Sterling Cutlass , & the Mark Morton Jackson Dominion. I guess I’d have to learn some “Lam of God” I have some on my long list of songs to learn!

Again the price comes into play.  Any way you split it the PRS S2 McCarty 594 is the next purchase.  I worry too much about guitars being discontinued!  Back to that trying to be responsible while being irresponsible thing.  Income tax could easily factor in as well?  Now as I think about it, my guitars are all keepers, but I’d gladly take a DG-335 Trini Lopez in place of my Squier Starcaster or upgrade the bridge pickup at least.  I’d be breaking out many “Foo Fighters” songs on one of those!  Yes I’ve learned this song…

I do feel VERY selfish saying I want to buy these guitars.  Especially when I know other families have loved ones that are sick, have died, lost a job, they might be struggling more than Kim & I are, etc.  

Toronto Blue Jays baseball regular season started yesterday in N.Y. against the N.Y. Yankees.  Playing guitar while watching baseball, Kim’s told me on Wednesday “Great, now you’ll have 2 things to talk about”L

I’d tell you all about the game & how great it was to see regular season baseball again, you’d be bored though.  I missed baseball SO much, the Blue Jays are undefeated after their first game that had an extra inning.  I have another date with the couch on Saturday.  I didn’t play guitar today, I just wanted to soak in the game.

VERY quiet weekend ahead of us.  I’d stop babbling about guitars, but that’s my thing.  It could be worse, it could be baseball talk or CFL talk if there’s a season this year?

I started streaming the new album from “A Day to Remember” they’ve really mellowed out in a good way.

“Royal Blood” have a video for their single ‘Limbo’ now.  I’m so glad I actually bought/pre-ordered this album.
