Rich's big 41st birthday wish list

Fender Jazzmaster

I turn 41 this month, and there's stuff I want. You can help me get it, and get something in return for your generosity.

Amazon has this thing called a Wish List, so I decided to try it out. Being my 41st birthday is in this month, this was a good opportunity to try out this list feature.

Will anyone use it? I have no idea. Maybe some of you will. Maybe nobody will. Who knows.

I've purposely listed items from really cheap to really expensive. You do get something in return for anything you buy for me. Each will be detailed below.

And to note: Even if you decide to buy me nothing, you still get to check out some cool items.

Let's start with the cheap stuff.

The cheap stuff

How generous are you?

I will genuinely be totally surprised if anyone gets me anything from the above list. And that's okay, because this is just something I'm trying out.

If you do get me anything, well then, you're just Mr. or Ms. Total Cool Person of the Universe, and I will be sure to state so right here unless you don't want to be mentioned (which is also fine.)

To the long-time readers who have stuck around...

...big thanks to you whether you get me anything or not. Also, thanks to the new readers as well, you guys are cool too. 🙂
