  1. (Munching popcorn, wondering if I should pull the plug)
  2. What's black and white and red and has can't go through a revolving door? A nun with a spear through her head.
  3. I've never seen that style of tuners on a Gibson guitar in my life.
  4. It's fairly common with this agency for retirees to come back "under contract" for a certain term, usually 24 hours a week. At this stage, I flat refuse to even consider that, but I'm also smart enough to realize things change and I may feel differently at that time. But as for right now, let me out of here!
  5. July 15, 2022 I will have 20 years with the federal government. I actually have more than that, but it was like a 'temp' position and did not count towards retirement. August 27, 2022 I will turn 62. I think you know where I 'won't' be on august 28th. 1 year, 11 months and 13 days. This is a good job, I just don't want to be here. I will stay busy. There aren't enough hours in the day for me and retiring from the day job will alleviate it some. I don't know the meaning of the word 'boredom'. I can't even wrap my head around what it might feel like.
  6. I do have one and you can email me at ksdaddy@yahoo.com to discuss.
  7. It’s a very dark metallic blue. It might be the same color as my 2010.
  8. 2016 Impala is gone, replaced with a 2019 Impala. I can drive like a pépère (which is most of the time) or I can make my cheeks touch my earlobes. I will be paying for it for a longer period of time than the 2016. I financed the 2016 rather aggressively at 30 months and the 2019 is 60 months. The payment is $14 more a month but I'm driving the Batmobile instead of that neutered silver thing. I can't remember the last time I got butterflies in my stomach when I looked out in the driveway.
  9. If it’s not on the back of the headstock, it might be inside on the head block. It might be on the inside of the back but hidden by dust.
  10. I'll be happy to edit anyone's post. You can email me the link to the thread or give me the subject line or whatever. Doesn't matter how, just as long as you convey what you'd like done. Something else to consider with tinypic and similar. I've had photos in the past that were assigned a URL and I would use that to insert it into a post. Then if I were to delete that pic from tinypic (for example), tinypic would then reassign that same URL to someone ELSE'S pic. And now THEIR pic shows up. Could be embarrassing. Feel free to email me directly at ksdaddy@yahoo.com or PM me through the forum. Either way, give me the details of what you want fixed or deleted and I will do it. S
  11. It's not an exact science because you don't know (at this point) how much the neck will shift and the top will rise under full string tension. You can get somewhere close just by laying a yardstick from the first fret (not the nut) to the bridge and lift the bridge end of the stick up so you have a little space at the 12th fret...not a lot, maybe 1/16" to a max of 1/8". That will give you an idea of how much your new saddle should protrude up from your bridge. Again, that's just to get you close, and I'm sure you'll want to tweak it. Some people even have a summer saddle and a winter saddle. Depends very much on the guitar. I have some that shift if the sun goes behind a cloud or if I'm boiling water on the stove, and I have others that shrug off being left in a snowbank.
