Drums, I think.

At my best, I've never been good at guitar, I'd be classified as nothing more than an enthusiast, somewhere below amateur. Now, I'm a bit less than that. I don't know any theory, can't read music, don't know scales or anything of that nature, basically I only know how to play songs I took enough of an interest in to play over and over again tons of times to get it into muscle memory.

That being said, I'm living proof you don't have to be good at it to enjoy it. Grab it and just noodle with it a bit.

Re: A day in the life...

in middle school i was awesome at Nirvana's come as you are, and wonderwall by Oasis. in high school i finally learned Pennywise's bro hymn and Bad Religions American Jesus. then there was a bunch of half ass Green Day, Offspring, and eventually Dashboard Confessional (was trying to get laid with that one :D ) attempts. don't think i ever learned more than main riffs and couldn't play worth a crap. so whatever you call yourself you've already got me beat :lol:

Very nice "atmospheric" photo, really like it.
Reminds me of Blair Witch for some strange reason...

That is awesome! Although it's hard at the same time I guess.
May be the sessions help to train flexibility of your joints or even contribute to lessen or ease the periodic tremors.
BTW perfect continuity regarding the wall color... :)

Tried out grandma's almost 100 years old gingerbread recipe...

Well... Finally got all the ingredients right but there's still some room for improvements when it comes to mixing the dough... :D

In the end the baked cookies turned out quite well and taste fantastic! Way better than the modern ones...

That's awesome! Like getting to taste your personal history :)

Pulling the gauge cluster apart on the El Camino. I'm suspecting some bad wiring/grounds from the long-standing windshield leak.

Everything old is new again. I always enjoyed Trends so much more than HVWs but the best ones I've ever seen were the Euro magazines that I used to find at some bookstores. They had anything I had ever seen beat by miles.
