Whole Lotta DVD
Well, today we went shopping for Debbie's birthday present, a new wedding ring. It was worth every penny to see the look of delight when she found one she liked and could finally replace the Argos special she had originally. Also, as I was in a rockin' mood from the other day's post I found a Led Zeppelin DVD with 5 hours of live footage. This was 39.99 in Virgin, but I found it in HMV for 19.99 ?!?!?!?, no brainer, snapped it up along with an Albert King CD. So there went my birthday vouchers for last week. Both Debbie and I are happy chickens. I also spent a large portion of the day planning my luggage, as I'll be taking a guitar (Blade Delta) to Bournemouth. I need to play every day to keep my chops up so I thought I'd use the time to work on some of the hard (technical) stuff that I keep putting off. Ryanair is notorious for overcharging on excess baggage, so I've got to fit guitar in Hiscox case, Korg AX1500g modelling unit, clothes, toiletries, book, etc.into 15kg. In the USA, the FAA supplied a standard letter for musicians which requested all airlines to allow guitars etc of a reasonable size on board the cabin. Monday afternoon I'll have to leave my number 1 with some dodgy looking dispatcher in a yellow vest at the foot of the steps on the tarmac at Prestwick praying that it makes it. I just hope that Hiscox cases live up to their rep!
I'll try an post somethig a little deeper and more thought provoking (ie.interesting) before I go to Bournemouth
