Happy Belated New Year!

Well, nothing like starting out the New Year right; I've whittled down my resolutions to one. Lose 300 pounds by February! Okay, maybe I'm aiming high...The Chet Atkins diet is going fantastically, instead of pizza and ice cream I'm just eating the pizza. I figure I'm cutting my calories in half! Vast improvement is needed...

I've been currently shopping for new E/A (electric acoustic) guitar rather obsessively. I'm trying to be ultra practical and not spend too much green on one, but there is this incredibly pretty Takamine I've had my eye on for a couple months. I'm going to continue to sleep on it for awhile and may check back on the models I'm watching on ebay. No hurry, although I may have my ailing finger healed without the ever-present scab. I lost the callus I had for 20 plus years and am now starting from scratch-it's a bitch! I finally rescued my Deluxe Strat from the pawn shop. They say that you can't play the blues on an axe until it's been pawned...this one is ready for "The Thrill Is Gone" and then some! I won't tell you the interest they charge here in AK, but it's absurd...

Well, I wish a fulfilling 2005 to everyone-Peace and over n out--Sir Derek Oz
