Talk about a complete surprise... My family got me, and got me REALLY GOOD this Christmas!!

You see, earlier today there was a humongous box in my adult daughter's room and was told that it was something special for my other adult daughter (now married, moved away, etc..) Okay... Fine... She'll be surprised when she and my son-in-law arrive. Probably a giant flat screen TV or something....

But noooooo... Earlier this afternoon when all the family was over, they all turned the tables on me and dragged the huge box over to me and they all said, "MERRY CHRISTMAS"!!! I was so shocked, I was saying, "what are you doing?" and things like, "We're done with presents", etc...etc...

My wife helped me open the box, and inside it was a big guitar case. I was so blown away, I didn't know what to do or say. Everyone was like, "take it out and open it up!". I opened the case up and saw a beautiful Gretsch G5122 hollow body electric guitar! I will be absolutely honest with you all... I got so choked up, I got up and had to leave the room. My wife came and checked on me and laughed, "Gotcha good, didn't we?". After I got myself back together, I rejoined everyone in the living room and tried out the guitar. I just can't believe how blessed I am with such a wonderful family!! :-)
