    @Tarheel Almost like watching the NBA today.  Right down to the wire then it's OT.  Roy's boys are always tough to beat.  When's he gonna retire?  Think he's about 70 now.  

    He did retire.  Former player Hubert Davis is the coach now.

    Of course we can dig it!  You sick or what?  About time you showed up!  Knew you would though with the start of March Madness.  :)   Still drawing pictures of nekkie stick women in your spare time?   😂

    The can you dig it line comes from an old movie The Warriors......circa 1979 about the gangs of NY.

    Spending time on other forums for now.......

  3. Eight years....where does the time go?  Happy birthday to all the regulars and the occasional guest who pass through looking for a light read and end of making a friend or two along the way!  It has been a blast and to the extent all who visit are made to feel welcome regardless of their audio acumen then I'm pleased.

    Great work guys and let's go for a few more years😊

  4. Morning grasshopper!  Haven't been on the forum much lately.

    Ice and 24 degrees here getting up to 40 today.  Power went out around 5:45 am preventing the auto coffee grinder to keep it's 6:00 appointment.  Lit the gas stove to boil water and then the power comes back on.  So one cup under the belt and headed back to the kitchen.

     

    As for the lock I guess we all need to stick to the 97 out of 100 things we can discuss and leave the other 3% for Face Book.  Nuff said about that.........

    Yep, too young and not a native to the high country.

    Four of my kids were born in Banner Elk though so I definitely feel like this area is home at this point.

     

    There have been a couple of quakes in the area in the past decade.

    I think the only one that I remember noticing was actually centered somewhere up in Virginia back around 2011-12 or so.

    I was working at Lees-McRae College at the time and noticed the water bottle on my desk start swaying back and forth and there was a noticeable rumbling noise that filled our basement office.

     

    The housing market is nuts up here.

    A good friend of mine just sold his house in Banner Elk, which was really nice, for $450,000.

    We we’re looking at some other homes in the area, one of which was an 800sq ft dump of a shack which apparently just sold for $270,000.

    It makes me glad I bought my house in Spruce Pine when I did back in 2016.

    My father graduated from Lees-McRae college.....born in Old Fort in 1915.  The family had a large Victorian house in town but many years later when I drove through sadly the house had been remuddled.  All the gingerbread and trim stripped off and vinyl siding installed🤢

  7. Weigh in.  Started at 198.8 last Sunday now at 191.8.  Yep I know a lot of it is water weight but still the belts not as tight.  As LF said "the key is not to binge on the carbs you've been craving".  On the positive side Atkins and Keto allow bourbon!

     

    Started out foggy but now the sun is out and it feels almost spring like.  LF playing tennis with her group.  Swanky is sleeping..........

     

    Gents....enjoy your weekend!
