Jimmy Page: Limited Edition Sculpture Anticipation

It’s Christmas Day and I’m eagerly hoping I receive the Jimmy Page Limited Edition sculpture I put on my Christmas list! And I did, sort of….

Turns out only a limited number of the 3,000 figure run was available for shipment from Knucklebonz in time for Christmas. So, I have a rain check. At least I have a reservation for one.

I am lamely attempting to equate my situation to a Christmas story parallel; “The Gift of the Magi” maybe or “A Christmas Carol”. In reality I’m more along the lines of “A Christmas Story” and madly in pursuit of my own equivalent of “an official Red Ryder, carbine action, two-hundred shot range model air rifle, with a compass in the stock and 'this thing' which tells time.” So, I have no way to claim any sort of redeeming value from my suffering.

Still, with that said, we’re talking about a piece of rock history here. Led Zeppelin just came off their triumphant return to the spotlight with the potential to actually tour again. It may even end up as one more thing my descendents have to deal with at my estate sale. Still, I don’t think there is anything wrong with a kid getting a BB gun for Christmas!
