Early birthday present
« on: February 25, 2021, 11:44:45 AM »
So last night my brother in law calls and asks if we are busy as the family went to his wife's parent's house for the evening. I tell him to come over and hang with us. He show up and gives my wife a bunch on candles, and then hands me a Sweetwater box from the bottom and tells me, "I got this over a month ago for your birthday and couldn't wait so enjoy." I open it up and there it is; a Boss SY-1. We must have noodled around with that pedal for 3 hrs. At one point my wife walked in and asks if that was me that just played the organ solo from Highway Star. I just grinned and told her THAT was why I married her.

Anyhow, very enjoyable night with a new toy and good company. That pedal is amazing, by the way. I couldn't stop thanking Donnie. That was a very unexpected gift that's also pretty expensive. If it had sucked, I still would have appreciated it.
If you're having one of those days where everyone is on your case and is just getting on your nerves, it's probably not everyone else
