My personal belief is spending that kind of money on a pet is something I wouldn't do. I know, I will be expected to contribute to the...

    This one-armed guy bought a pair of gloves and......

    I snagged some soft light-duty garden gloves because they were 75% off. They are perfect for moving my hundreds of guitars around. I was teasing the nice saleslady that I should get a deeper discount because I only have one hand. She said; "Just turn the one you don't need inside-out." I thought...

    50's TV Sit-Coms. Things I didn't know.

    I have given up on the news. I'm going back to old TV shows on MeTv and DECADES. I learned something today while watching" The Donna Reed Show." Did you know that her family and Dennis lived in the same town? He came over to help Donna paint the interior of her house. I have proof. :hippie:

    MIM Strat body poly crack or worse.

    Hi. I have a '96 MIM Strat body that has, what I believe, is a crack in the poly finish that is just that and not a split seam in the wood. It looks to me that the crack occurred when guitar was bounced on the strap button. I need your input. Thanks,
