Santa came and went...what did you get?

Well, ladies and gentlemen, Christmas came and went. Did Santa bring you any thing good? Anything good for Hanukkah? Anybody get a guitar, or guitar-related gift? I got a peg winder and some strings. Anybody give any guitar-related items for the holiday?

On Christmas morning, before all the commotion of friends and family, before I had to start thinking about my cooking schedule, I got in two solid hours of peaceful, uninterrupted, productive practice time. After that, I needed for nothing more...

Two hours of uninterrupted time? That would truly be a gift. Merry Christmas Oski.

I got a shirt. Which I had bought at Sears, and my wife decided that would make a good gift for me, so she secretly confiscated it and wrapped it for me to open on Christmas morning.

My children have given me the wonderful book "Orfeo" (numbers 6-10)! :sorride:

The photos are superb, the articles are very interesting. A beautiful art book!
I already have the first book, numbers 1-5, bought two years ago.

My wife only buys guitars for me. A shirt would be nice. It's cold outside.

The best gifts are the ones you choose yourself!
You have to make a list, as for children.

Well, I want a guitar Torres, 20 sets of strings, a solid desk, a home studio and a digital recorder very good quality, with some boxes of good bottles of red wine : Medoc, Châteauneuf du Pape, Burgundy Crus ( Gevrey-Chambertin, Meursault,etc..) vins blancs d' Alsace et Sauternes du Bordelais) .... :ivresse:

No champagne, it gives me acidity in the stomach and I ...burp! :oops: sorry...

Have a good holiday, no regrets for unwelcome gifts.
Playing the guitar every day is already the most beautiful gift! :chitarrista:
Health is also a precious gift. Let's take care of ourselves.

:bye: :delcamp_fiesta:

für Andreas777 ... Ich mag Schokolade sehr, aber bei einer homöopathischen Dosis (nur eine Schokolade nach der anderen) :mrgreen: ... du kannst mir deine schicken, ich werde es sehr gut machen! :merci:
Tschüss !

Fat ... I got fat. My son and I made a huge amount of hot cross buns, popcorn balls, sugar plums, jam, persimmon muffins. And on top of all that, we made a Christmas Breakfast feast for the extended family of eggs, sausage, ham, pancakes, fruit, and much more ... I am now eating up the leftovers. Yeah. I got fat for Christmas. :D

Shoulder surgery, new pillows, some nice cologne. A new bow tie and Apple Ear pods, the bees knees. I can leave my IPhone upstairs and walk all through the house listening to music..
