Mother's Day Presents!

My guys showered me with my Mother's Day presents earlier tonight!

Sam gave me a gorgeous blue and white sapphire eternity necklace:

Ian gave me five movies: Steve Martin's version of the Pink Panther, a collection of 200 classic cartoons, Stand By Me, West Side Story, and Fiddler On The Roof.

Sean gave me a sock monkey!

And Evan gave me a heart shaped sapphire pendant with a tiny diamond on top:

I am wallowing in being treasured. :)

Sam brought me flowers, too. I adore that man!
me - wtf?

Great guitarists

I did one of those My Top Five things over on FB, and here's the ones I chose off the top of my head, although Clapton is ALWAYS king:

eric clapton, Tom Scholz, Carlos Santana, Jimi Hendrix and The Edge.

My friend Tracey added:

Jimmy Page, Eddie Van Halen, Pete Townshend, Mark Knopfler, Joe Perry, Joe Walsh, Keith Richards, Buddy Guy, Robert Cray, BB King, Jerry Cantrell, Jeff Healy .... OMG, how can there by just 5 .... there's no way :)

My sister G added:
Django Reinhardt, John McLaughlin, Jeff Beck, Robin Trower, Larry Coryell, Ernie Isley, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Steve Vai, Ry Cooder, Robert Johnson, T-Bone Walker...too many to name.

I then added:

Joe Satriani, Jerry Garcia, Jeff Beck, Johnny Winter, did any of us mention BB King? James Taylor, Steve Earle, Johnny Cash (yes, really), Bruce Springsteen, Danny Kortchmar...

Who else, my little cupcakes? I'm curious to see just how many guitar greats we can all come up with.
