That's awesome Dave.
Sorry for the off topic post but I just have to tell someone.
I have a house full of teenagers twice a week. I let my sons band
practice downstairs, full drum kit and amps, the whole shootin match.
I give them a place to practice, make them dinner, fix their guitars,
tell them to drive careful when they leave. This has been Thursday and
Sunday nights for almost a year.
Funny thing happened tonight after practice. My wife called me
downstairs and all the kids were in the kitchen. In the middle of the
floor was a new hardcase with a New Haven made Ovation six string
guitar. They had saved their money since November and pooled it
together to get me something they said I wouldn't spend the money on
for myself. It was their way of saying thanks. I nearly cried.
The next generation is going to be just fine.
It almost makes me want to put these TVs back in the kid's rooms :/
It'll come.. thanks for the words of encouragement :)
