Happy birthday and that’s a nice looking guitar by the way. Hope to see you on the video chat tomorrow night.

Some people call me a tool, others are less complimentary. Tools being useful things.

@markbailey

That was one of my big life-changing experiences, for which I will forever be grateful to you, for your confidence that - really - I could and would build a guitar, you patience, your incredible skill-sharing and for being you.

That week, with you, Carol, Fiona, Billy and the other guys in the workshop for a week - seriously changed my life.

Thank you.

@tv101 Happy Birthday TV. I will crack a Canadian wobbly pop for you tonight. And a far away LOL just to get the night going. 🙂

I'm back!!

Took a while to clear up after all the wild parties, to recover from the celebratory events, and get back to the UK, but I think I can safely now say that I am young-no-more.

Obviously not as old as @jamesbisset but then few are.

 

Thanks for all the well wishes and other comments

😋

 

Who's next?

 

That guitar is still going strong too.  That was a real "I don't believe I just made this" moment for me and everyone who knew me (and my complete-absence of practical skills at the time).  Swapped the original pickups out for something a little more suiting to the guitar and reshaped the headstock (originally "designed" in the pub one evening - bad move).
