    Exactly... and when we can't remember what we were talking about, we start saying: "Fluck, we're getting old!"

    Old Guy #1: The Dr says the reason I have a hard time going pee is due to my prostate being swollen! Boy, I'd give anything to take a nice normal pee again!

    Old Guy #2: Peeing normal is no problem for me! I'm conically constipated & no longer have regularly bowel movements anymore! I'd give anything just to take a nice healthy poop again!

    Old Guy #3: Aw stop your complaining fellas. I take a good strong pee every morning followed by a good healthy bowel movement! I just wish I could wake up & get out of bed before it all happens.

    Meh, I just go with the flow, questions get asked, and the conversation turns....eventually someone will say something on topic....or not.

    Back in 1980 I bought a Gibson Les Paul and a Marshall tube amp second hand. I am not sure what year they were but I think the guitar was from the early 60s. Right now they are probably worth more than my house.

    In 1980 eh?!? Holy $#!t, your a Doodoo Meister from way back in the day! LOL Just like so many of us here, maybe we should start a club?? LOL

    Safe to say if you still had that rig you's have quite the set of collectable Rock 'n Roll memorabilia!

    The Gibson Les Paul went through some crazy changes in the 60's Like.. giving way to the newer SG design for 61 & 62 & only being available through special order until 1968 when the original style Les Paul reappears in the product line.

    So that's a lot of years without a basic Les Paul Standard right? Don't forget, in 68 the Les Paul shows up as the mini-humbuckered Deluxe & P-90 version 'Standard' & the full size humbuckered Custom.

    Here's a pic of a typical '68 Standard Gold Top

    Here's a Wikipedia page to help you remember what you might have had way back in the day.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gibson_Les_Paul

    Here's an even more in-depth Vintage Les Paul breakdown with all the beautiful little detail that us Gibson nerds love!

    http://www.guitarhq.com/gibson5.html

    The price on a 60's Les Paul swings by 10's of thousands of dollars depending on the exact year & model.

    The Marshall stuff sees the biggest price change coming out of the 60's & Plexi stuff into the 70's metal panel stuff.

    Boy, if we only kept that stuff from back in the day huh?

    1981 Peavey T-60 (my first quality guitar)
    Epiphone Masterbilt DR500M (well, I missed it until I bought it back)

    That's really about it for me. I don't really miss the rest of the stuff I've churned over the years.

    I can't come up with 5 either...but here is what I do have...

    1950's Gretsch Double Anniversary my Uncle gave me...
    1970's Les Paul
    1970's Kustoms Amp...

    What I REALLY want back is my Vinyl Record Collection I sold back in 2005 when I got tired of moving with them...big loss for me...
