    Yesterday, after a sumptuous feast of fruits and pastries, soaked in black tea and coffee, with both of our kids, son-in-law and longtime friend Cathy and a small kennel of pet hounds we distributed and open presents. Having just purchased a house, put up a back fence , paid for a multitude of moving related expenses and making co-payments on cancer surgery I was thrifty, but made sure everyone got a gift, my son-in-law getting a beautiful alpaca sweater from me. (OK, it was a wool blend sweater with a llama wearing sunglasses on the front and a llama butt on the back)
    I got a couple of shirts and a countertop grill, but small package after small package contained guitar hangers, at least 20 of them. I quipped, " I don't think I've got enough wall space." Then my son-in-law blabbed out , "I counted at least thirty guitars when I moved 'em over here."
    My wife's eye brows audibly rose. I have never lied about how many guitars I have, a few years ago I stopped keeping an accurate total, but I haven't bragged about it either. Truth be told I was a little surprised. I haven't gone into the music room to count yet, but thirty doesn't seem impossible.
    Here's the thing, I have nothing to throw back in the s-i-l's face to raise my daughter's eyebrows. She knows about all his nerd gaming stuff, you know the 13 sided dice and destiny card kind of crap. he has no other vices. I must ponder a suitable revenge.
    In the meantime I'm gonna start putting up guitar hangers.

    My wife refers this situations as lying through omission, lol. I get caught on it all the time.

    I have just taken a guitar census and find only 28 guitars. I feel vindicated.
    A ukulele and a bass wouldn't count as guitars, right?

    I have five, and one will be sold soon. I used to own lots. So I guess I'm in the clear, I'm married 38 years....so I don't really care what my wife has to say either way.

You gotta count all stringed instruments including lap steel, dobro, pedal steel, bass, uke, mandolin and one string Diddley Bows and anything else with a string on it that ya got hidden under your bed, stuffed in the closet or have assigned to trustworthy friends to hold on to so the wife does know about them!

    Guitar hangers being for guitars? Yes, I’ll agree with that. But I think you still need to deal with the Rat. A self respecting gasser can’t abide with that action. You let it slide, and he’ll rat you out again, then you’ll never get to 30 guitars. We can’t have that now, can we?:cool:
