    All I want for Christmas...

    Is to whittle down the guitar parts and crap that I'll never use. I'm slow at getting around to it, but if there's anything usable, I'll gladly give it to you guys. Don't get excited, I don't think anybody'd want most of it.

    Re: All I want for Christmas...

    I'm getting most of what I want, my oldest and her 3 girls are coming down, as well as our oldest granddaughter and her family! It would put a cherry on top if our only grandson could be here also, but it doesn't look possible.
    CH Willie, I too have too much "stuff", but peddled some on CL after my bride took her fall. I got a few hundred dollars, and traded my SG for a Strat, but it worked out as it seems we are poor, and qualified for the hospital to waive her co pay!
    Now we have a little Christmas money too!

    I haven’t made this public anywhere on the internet so I’m hoping we can all keep this private but, on the 12th I head to the robotic surgeon to attempt to cure me of prostate cancer. For Christmas I just want to see my wife’s smiling face when I wake from whatever drugs get pushed into me for this event. Thank you, Vietnam!

    Well, shit, Laker. I wish you all the luck and good technology and science in the world. The prognosis for prostate cancer is pretty good from what I've read. Much strength, man.

    Damn man, my very best wishes and please don't be pessimist, prostate cancer nowadays has one of the highest 100% cure rates, if I'm not mistaken.

    We're your friends and we're with you, man. All the way.

    I live in a distant country, but whatever I can do for any one of you guys I will.

    If you don't mind, keep in touch and let us know how it went.

    Sergio, I just want to see my wife’s smiling face at the end of this event. She has been there and backed me for 45+ years of this insane musician’s life and to see her will tell me that all is normal and the show goes on regardless of the little speed bumps that get tossed at me.

    I'm joining the chorus: my best thoughts and prayers to you -- and to your wife! Remember, an optimistic mindset means half the battle is already won!

    Sorry you have to go through that Laker!
    I had a scare a few years ago, but they found no cancer, (I have to take a couple of pills every night though!) The VA has me in the AO registry for my diabetes.
    Best quick recovery wishes! (Several of my friends have had the good luck!)
