    But..its 100% true. I bought a guitar yesterday. The seller said it was a Washburn Eagle. Turns out it was a Washburn falcon.
    As I was driving home, and I swear on my kids lives, a Falcon flew over my car!!! I'm somewhat of an ornithologist, and know a Falcon when I see one!
    How weird is that????

    And by chance you didn't just finish playing F-Zero?

    Good sign! Washburns of that era are great guitars. Nice one.

    Since you didn't mention having to clean your windshield, I'd say it's a good sign.

    Was riding around the country the other day and spotted a really big horned owl sitting atop the exhaust snorkel of a peanut picker.

    Then, believe it or not I shared a large thin crust supreme pizza with my mom and dad about an hour later.

    My mom never eats pizza and my dad doesn't like a lot of toppings on his pizza.

    It was so spooky I threw salt under my left armpit and added some hard salami to my mojo bag while taking 3 steps backward with my eyes closed and a paperclip clamped on my right ear.

    I'm still alive so I must have done something right.

    Was it a Millennium Falcon?

  11. Whoa. Trippy.

    I had something similar happen. I bought a new Fender bass, and as I was carrying it out to the parking lot I noticed ... all the cars in the lot had fenders. All of them dude. I kid you not.

    When I bought my Lakland years ago, I went home by means of "land transportation". I never took my tin foil hat off since then.

    I was driving in my old Ford Thunder Bird with my Gibson Thunder Bird bass in my trunk and suddenly there was a boom of thunder from the sky, then.....
