'splain this to me
Jack got a gun for Christmas. He told me that it was a .22, but it has an attachment to make it a .21. I've gotta see that thing tomorrow. I've never seen a .21 and I've never seen any .21 ammunition.
Jack becomes confused sometimes.
Quinton didn't make it over to the Crackerbox until well after noon (it seems that what Jennifer wrote in her email about Christmas Day was very fungible, depending on her mood and her memory). In other words, she fucked me over again. What the hell... I am accustomed to that kind of treatment anymore.
We didn't make it to Mom's house because Quinton arrived so late today, but she's making biscuits and gravy in the morning, and we'll be there shortly after first light. I'll probably miss my brother, but his gifts will keep until he visits mama again. I bought him some fine stuff from my friend willy, who runs a most excellent web site if you want to buy musical equipment. Good shit at a fair price is available there.
Aw, fuck it. I don't feel much like blogging today.
Oh, yeah. Biscuits and gravy.
A .21 huh? Now I've heard everything.
You and Quinton enjoy the day at your Mom's place. Wish her a Merry Christmas for all of us.
I have a question... My niece received an Acoustic Eletric Guitar. She wants to buy a tuner for it. Is one better than the other?
Bless his heart, Jack sounds a couple cards short of a full deck. Kinda scary to picture a kid like that with a gun. Maybe you could do a community service and at least teach him the basics of gun safety.
.21 caliber? I seem to recall crossman made a gas powered air rifle in something like that many years ago, but I've never heard of a rimfire or centerfire rifle in that caliber.
I've been lookin for a Washburn to learn gee-tar on but so far haven't found any online places that I'd trust with my money...looks like I may have to patronize your friend's business. Thanks Rob!
Dave, get an Oscar Schmidt to start with. They are made by Washburn, they are quality guitars, and they are easy to play. Plus, you can buy a good one for about $200.
A genuine Washburn is going to set you back about four times that amount, AT LEAST. Learn to play first, then shop up to what you really want.
I have three Oscar Schmidt guitars, including one of the best-sounding 12-strings I ever played, and I like 'em all. I bought them all from Willy, too.
He's an honest man.
