Aye. Haven't looked at vintage yet but current thoughts are:

Fender Player HSS in some sort of sunburst of tobacco etc.

Boss Katana 50.

It might cheer you up to think he'll probably end up doing jobs for his wife for no pay :)

It won't be much good compared to something well chosen second hand for similar money, if it inspires you to get playing though do it! The first guitar you buy will only end up being one of many :)

Don't know if this should go in the irony thread but it cheered me up.

Being passed by a vehicle with the name John Lydon on it. Nah, not that one, was the van of a painter decorator. At least, I think so...

Sorry Andy, but to be fair you probably should have thought of that before you jacked in the job. Retire in haste, repent at leisure? :)

Not trivial but has definitely cheered me up - I'm off to Greece next week for a weeks sailing on a mates 51' yacht. Get some proper sailing in as on family holidays have to take it easy.

Being overtaken by a white van on the way home. Passenger stuck his head out of the window and called out "You're a really good cyclist......I'll give you that!"

I have no idea why I deserved that and the "I'll give you that" concerns me a bit; sort of implies a missing sentence at the start eg "You are a complete knob but....." but it was a seemingly trivial thing that cheered me up!
