    Default I pulled the trigger again. Hope this isn't a blank this time

    After the disappointment of not getting the Eastman MD 614 . The MASS multiplied 10X.


    I must be crazy . I just bought this from the Mandolin Store. Brian to the recue again!

    You lunatic. You should forward that thing to me as fast as possible. Its your only hope.

    When you think you're going down for the last time, could you give me an indication where the estate sale will be and when? I assume you didn't tell anyone what you paid. I need an oval cheap, but at 67 I can't wait too long.

    Cheap?? The bad news for you is like the say , Only the good die young. I'm closing in on 69 so It will probably 30 years or so until the estate sale . I'll probably forget where I put it someday anyway . Hopefully I will learn how to play it by then.

    I sold that way back, maybe 3 or more years ago when my tremors got too bad. Since I had some nerve blocks in my neck and got off the bad meds for the Essential Tremors. My Tremors are very manageable. I even had a Cochlear implant done. I'm hearing better. Finally back trying again about 2 months.

    As my grandpa used to say, getting old's a bitch, unless you consider the alternative.

    My goal is to have my skill level stay ahead of my physical decline. That's harder all the time. Yesterday I found out two carpel tunnel surgeries in my future.
