This picture made my whole day. Clint, wearing my new glasses (which are being exchanged because they look way better on him than me), a guitar cable wrapped around his neck, and that funny look on his face.
Clint has been buying and selling guitars and amps ever since we've been married. It's a never-ending conversation around our house. He'll tell me he found his "dream" guitar or amp and that once he has it he'll never want anything else, ever again. Then a month later someone is at our house buying it (always for much more than he initially paid) and he's agonizing over what to get next. It's pretty hilarious. And cute. And also a good way to practice for much bigger ventures he has in mind. Example: this email he sent me the other day while appraising a commercial property at work...
"it's worth about nine million bucks if it's all leased up. it's vacant now so it's only worth 5.5 million. which means, we should buy it, lease it, and then sell it for over 3 million more than what we got it for. that's the future."
Glad I married a go-getter. Even if it means I'm learning way more about guitars than I ever cared to know.
p.s. a quick SUMMER SALE on everything in the vintage shop!
