I'd rather be in LR eating seafood.  Last time there we went to the all you can eat place on 17 a mile or two past the new Rio's Brazilian steak place.I ate crab legs till I popped. I got my D-15 there. And I could go to GC to talk to Zoe.  Girl with glasses turn on.

Yeah man no shortage of all you can eat crab legs. We usually hit Crabby Mikes in surfside. You’ll have to introduce me to zoe. Lol. If you get down next week let me know. Had the first positive corona case this morning at grand strand hospital. Don’t know yet where this person got it yet.  they been taking a lot of precautions with spring breakers and tourist season starting. Closed schools and cancelled some events so far. Don’t know if they gonna cancel the 2 Bike weeks or the country music fest yet. I guess that depends on how long this sh!t lasts. This sh!t might put a hurting on tourist season

Its anarchy out there cats lying down with dogs, TP shortages, idiots thinking anti bacterial soap will kill a virus, and people using Tito's Vodka as hand sanitizer. Ever been to Brisket on 17. Killer Q and a good bourbon selection.

Mostly trying not to get this virus. It's crazy here.  I did go with Deb to a few places, The streets are empty of cars compared to what it was. Yeah, the TP is all wiped out here too. I told Deb if we do run out we can do what the Romans did way back in Christ's day. use a sponge on a stick LOL. Or get creative and go to the hard ware store and put a T fitting on the water line to the stool, put a small hose and a sprayer on the end and have your own Bidet. Anyway...I looked up Gibson ES 390's today, Thinking about selling 4 or 5 of mine and getting one. I want to downsize to 4 guitars. 

That would give me 2 Gibsons, a Casino and buy a nice acoustic.

Richmond Government offices closed down. Lord please let us close down. I'm ready to do the 5 hour drive south. I'm ready to leave VA. Hate this state. People are loosing it here. 

Zappa is killing it on side one of One Size. Inca Roads is f-ing amazing. I know people don't get him, sorry about that. Their is always Taylor Swift if you can't wrap your head around the structural density of his music.

Good score on a Gibson DC..

Thanks! It was listed at $550. Got it for $500. It plays and sounds amazing! My guitar with a P90.  Always wanted a Junior, Special, one of those older Melody Makers, or something in general with a P90 pickup or two. Seen this in the new GC in my area when they first opened on the 5th of this month and seen the price being brand new and was like, "Hmm.", so I went back and got it that Saturday.

Not much better here. The crowds are light so be pretty easy to get into places to eat. Just hope they don’t start a friggin curfew. Don’t blame you for getting out of Va. took me 33 years lol. It used to be a lot worse though. Yeah Zappa if they dont get him on the early good records they sure wouldn’t like trance- fusion. Lol. The first time the wife heard she thought it was me playing 😂

I put new pots in my 339 and fixed the nut.  I've been putting this off because I really was a bit apprehensive about it.  

The pots had a really steep taper.   So I got a set of Gibson historic pots which have a really nice taper.  I didn't replace the whole harness, I just un-soldered each pot one at a time and replaced them.  Way faster than redoing the whole thing from scratch.  But man, getting all that stuff out and back in is a bit of a pain.  I used surgical tubing.  Turned out well.  

Also, the low E and A string nut slots were cut really low so I did the super glue technique.  This guitar has a bone nut so I bought a blank and ground some up with a file, used that to fill the slots then just a drop of GluBoost superglue, refiled and done.  First time I ever tried that.  Went well.

Well they closed all restaurants except for curbside pick up and delivery. That means wife’s Wednesday luncheon with the girls is off. That means no loud guitar playing today. cant interrupt the cooking shows shes watching. (Like she ever cooks any of that stuff anyway). I’ll have to use the headphones. Well I guess thats better then a sharp stick in the eye.

P90's sound incredible, specially on a Jr style guitar with a wraparound bridge that seems to intensify the way a P90 resonates and not mention that LP DC's just seem to be more fun to play.. Enjoy....

Might be headed to LR tomorrow. Just waiting for the big wigs to tell us what is up. Supposed to know by close of business today, which is quickly approaching.

Slept in late anticipating coming to work at 5pm. Got called in early to possibly shut our wind tunnel down.

Its gonna be a ghost town at least n. Myrtle, Myrtle proper the whole south strand. Haven’t heard about Little River proper but I would think there too. Everything is closing. Restaurants, bars and I think most of the stores except grocery and their even cutting hours. Gonna be warm at least around 80 tomorrow and Friday

My wife and brother are down there. Still no word yet. Looks like NASA really cares about out health and just wants to keep running their test. It'll happen eventually. I can bet the civil servants are all starting to telework but us dirty contractors can come in and risk getting sick.

I swam 100 lengths in the local pool then suspended my membership for the next few months.

After that I went shopping...good grief....you cannot buy fresh meat, bread, flour, veg, canned goods in the big supermarket but I found a few things in the cheaper one. 

Do you have Aldi in USA?  In an Aldi this week a shopper filled her trolley with 80 tins of tinned tomatoes; they took 76 tins back from her at the checkout, apparently she got really angry.     FFS - 80 tins of tomatoes?   Idiotic.  If that's her diet no wonder she needs all the toilet paper.

I'm hoping the greedos will have bought so much by the end of next week that they'll stay home while the rest of us can buy what we need.

And it's still raining in the UK tonight.

Cat's steal your soul. JK. We have 2 dogs. A  13 YO Cocker Spaniel and  2 YO Rat Terrier. Ginger is the the Rat and Max is the Cocker. Both are different and crazy in their own way.  Pets are like family no matter what you have.
