Got my tax refund and immediately used it on two things I had been putting off for too long; one important, one frivolous. The important one was a dental appointment. I’ve lived in Portland for three years and haven’t been to a dentist in that time. They pulled off bits of tarter the size of a tonsil stone. Painful and expensive as all hell, but it had to be done.

The frivolous one was a new guitar. In December I bought a new acoustic, so I decided to buy a new electric. So say hello to my new Kramer Baretta. Mahogany body with an Alnico V humbucker for only $150 on Reverb. Can’t wait!
