  1. Why aren’t you just enjoying them? As for the rest of you, don’t make me come over there from St. Freakin’ Louis.
  2. https://stlouis.craigslist.org/ele/d/jerseyville-vintage-pair-of-klipsch-la/7021648308.html I asked what year, what drivers, and why they thought they were worth $2500. No reply yet. Also, I feel I have heard that language "big and heavy, you know what they are" before....
  3. I have a pair that I was thinking about trading but just changed my mind, sorry.
  4. I would love to have that setup. Any pony express headed west to STL? I’m serious.
  5. He thought it was too quiet. I read that here, somewhere, but I can't find it.
  6. I am only in my early fifties but have siblings a decade older. My parents (RIP both) were born in ‘27 and ‘33, both dirt poor. I am certain I have some of their sense of cautious spending but mostly their sense of what is important in life. I grew up in the sticks and we raised a good portion of our own food. I can’t tell you how many beans I snapped, lol It seemed mom was always canning things, and there was a big area in the cellar full of canned something or other. I had a great childhood and learned a ton from my dad, a veteran of WWII and Korea. He lied about his age to join up. That man could do anything, and taught those skills, electrical, plumbing, framing, concrete, roofing, whatever - to his 3 sons. We were required to know. Mom knew everything about cooking, making clothing, etc and taught those skills to my sisters. We all agree we had GREAT parents. Very rarely got what we wanted but always got what we needed. I am fortunate and grateful.
  7. I’m 6’ even. Early 50’s. Last November I was at 237 and the doctor warned that my fasting glucose was high and that if I didn’t lose my belly he was going to start me on metformin. No thanks. I started losing immediately. By February I was down 10 lbs and feeling better. All my numbers fell into line. Doctor said, you’re on a low dose of BP meds now, and if you continue on this track, somewhere around 210 you will start getting dizzy occasionally. Yell when that happens and I will take you off your BP medicine. That was the first time I even knew that was possible. Well, I hit 210 and he was right. I’ve been off it a week or two now. Still losing. I will pause at 200, then probably proceed to 190. You can do this. It has changed my life already.
  8. Tim Kresko has some I’m pretty certain. PM me if you don’t know who that is or how to contact him. I don’t think he’ll ship, though. You’d have to drive to STL or pony-express it.
