Ode to the cbg wives ..
Well I figure we need an honorable mention for all the wives / girlfriends of the cbg builders here .
You all know exactly what I mean ..
They put up with us hording up the house with 100 guitars and parts .. they sacrifice belt buckles , spoons , forks and silverware , heck they even scout for us while they are out shopping for themselves . ;-)
you know I’m right because you are smiling now .. :-)
They gotta put up with memory provoking questions like “ honey .. remember that thing we had in the drawer for like 10 years .. that blue thingy ??? know where it is now ??? “”
“ honey .. … um … can I have this ?” … …” got any spare booby pins ..? I wanna try something ..” “mind if I take this apart ?” then …. “um .. do you need this back ?” :-)
Etc etc etc …
Not to mention the things that go on they don’t know about .. , - like you just waiting for her to wake up soon so ya can fire up the power tool …. In the living room .. ;-)
And also having to put up with us not being smart enough to turn the computer volume down at night while a video pops on and scares her awake .. (while you scramble to turn it down , then wait to see if you got away with it ) ,… then somehow blame the computer or video ;-) (Possible same story with amps during an itching midnight testing urge .)
For all these things they put up with .. and more .. - HERE’S TO THE CBG WIVES ;-)
KOOTOS ! :-)
And an honorable mention for the lady builders and their hubbies that go through the same thing ;-)
As with any addiction .. we all need support .. and appreciate it .
hang in there ;-)
This is so on time. Although my wife has built her own 3 string (a nice one too) and can play a bit, she's put up with her fare share of practically everything you just mentioned. Her only real concern is the amout of boxes I have in the shed. It's well over 3 hundred now.
I've been wanting to build or buy her a dulci strummer. This is going to put that on top of the list.
Great post Mr. Pick.
thanx slow hound .
THANX KID ;-)
