  1. I am one of two Darrells in my social herd. I got the nickname Big D(6'3'' 2**lbs). Sometimes it's Big Dawg. The other Darrell got tagged with Lil' d(5'8''158lbs).
  2. Trust me, I've built a pair of k-horns and jubilees. The k-horns are more difficult. Many compound mitre cuts that have to be right on the money to achieve an air tight interior. I modeled the pair I built from a 1976 pair and the speakerlab plans. only a few differences between the two as far as the bass bin goes. 1976 model used 1/2 and 3/4 plywood. If I remember correctly, you will only be able to get about 450hz out of the bas bin(someone chime in here). Big D
  3. I can remember when I was just a kid, my mom, dad and I would go to the drive-in most every Friday night. They would watch the feature movie until I fell asleep. Then they would move around to side 2 for the adult films. I guess thats how I learned about the birds and the bees by peeking between the seats. I continued to go as I got older. then in the early 80's the drive-ins started to disappear one by one. Now we have none. I really miss them. Big D
  4. What upsets me the most is when someone calls me "SIR".
  5. I will usually hit 60 at some point in the day. I get nausea and feel a little strange. I keep fig bars handy to munch on when this occurs. It could go up 50 points or 100. We've had trouble zeroing in on the proper dosage when I'm about to eat. I've known about my diabetes for only a few years and has been a difficult road to travel. my tresiba dosage is 150 units daily and novolog is on a sliding scale depending on the numbers. Truth be told , I could stand to loose a few pounds(well more than a few). Big D
  6. I feel your pain brpther. As a fellow diabetic I can relate to wild flucuations in blood glucose. I have been as low as 40 and as high as 300 in the same day. It's sometimes difficult to get the dosages correct before meals. Tresiba and Novolog can be your friend if wheeled properly. I recently aquires a Freestyle Lybre monitoring system. What a god send. No more pricking my fingers. If you don't have one, you should look into it. Big D

    What I Got Today!

    Be safe on your journey. Got a few things today. Adapters for putting 1in. screw on type drivers on a 2 in. horn. Then my girl at the local thrift store hooked me up. 25 cd for 4.99 out the door.
  11. I've done a search without much luck. My question: Is their a recone kit for the K-31-E or K? BigD
  12. Looking to get my shop finished, loose a few pounds(well, more than a few), get my diabetes dialed in, been wanting to build a half Jub for a center, try to survive retirement.
  13. I have a rental next door. A couple moved in and on the very first weekend he thru open the garage door and started to thump at a pretty good volume. about 20 minutes later the wife comes out and start raising heck. I've never heard such language. She had a mouth like a sailor(no offence to sailors). Then after that was kicking and screaming. Then came the blows. She would smack him. then he'd smack her. this would go on for about an hour' then silence. This went on for about a year. Loved it. Would have coffee on the back porch most saturdays listening to the kerfuffle.
