  1. KEH is great for used gear. Just picked up another Nikon F4 for the daughter and it's perfect in every way.
  2. @kippy you paid the admission fee. 😂😂😂 Keep us posted on the Mc gear. Sweet to have but... lol Gotta sound amazing.
  3. Good catch @Marvel thanks! See what no coffee is doing to me? lol
  4. I've seen enough snakes in my lifetime. TYVM though.
  5. @sputnik Some great shots right there! Thanks!
  6. All quiet in Duckburg. Low 70's today and turning up the heat to the mid's this week. Just about time to kick back and see how the neighbors enjoy a lil Miles Davis hittin the high notes. Thought about a trip to Cbus today for the spring football game but blah. Fox covered it nationwide, which was the first time ever. 80k in the place, studs all over the field, coaching changes, formers coming back to strut their gold and diamands from the NFL and a couple Super Bowl rings? Don't need me w/my pom poms. 😂 Yea, the games a changin for sure. We'll see what shakes out after the Spring version of the NIL, which opens on the 16th and closes on the 30th. People seem to be over-looking that one lil thing that can change the face of a team. They're not showin 'em anything anyway. Just a scrimmage w/bands and fans. I will go on record with this. You think Marvin Harrison was a great wide receiver? Jerimaih Smith IS the REAL DEAL. This freshman is making unreal catches already and hasn't even hit the weight room. He's gonna be truly amazing IF he can stay healthy. Bloodwork Monday morning. I'm taking my mug and won't leave that place when the vamps are done til it's FULL! Yea, think I'm addicted. Carry on!
  7. Think I said that one night at a Grateful Dead show... My memory is still a bit fogged... 😂
  8. Ya got the partial right! lol
  9. @Tarheel didn't Code move relatively close? Might have been a late nite comment so dunno. Someone did though didn't they? Lunch? Doc pulled me off coffee sooooo I'll attribute any errors to that. lol No coffee, soda, nada just water. Having withdrawals here. lol
  10. Wellllllll, I'm kinda partial too...
  11. Ports don't forget the ports! Add 100k to the resale price.
  12. Atta boy. I always knew you had a good heart. Why don't you pick them up for 50 then we can all pony express them up to ya. We'd be ever so gentle. Guys would be linin up to get them up to you. Ya give em a new pair of Jubes to pony up to ya you'd never see 'em again. There's that!
  13. You guys have zero compassion. If they were 50 ya MIGHT be able to turn them around w/some cash in time. As a kid I would have owned them for the 50. On second thought... Well, nm.
  14. Do I detect a lil bit of male bonding going on btwn you two now that you're neighbors? Asking for a friend. 😂💪
  15. I went print to digit once upon a time. That was enough. 28 years of B&W along w/boxes of Kodachrome 64. Yep, know what I'm doing w/those. Today & digital? I'm LUCKY to get it outta the phone and onto a hard drive. I honestly am clueless. I've got stuff on phones laying here. lol My daughter set the phone to upload to Google then when Google Face Groups hit I was lost again. Stressin on how to do it so I asked her. She turned somethoing on the phone on and said there it's done. I'd spent 3 days trying to figure out how to avoid losing all my photos in google. This crap is nuts for old guys! lolol
  16. It's spring time and love is in the air! I'm not a big bass eater myself but I do like a lil bass. Lake Erie perch though? That's another story! 😂 Now @billybob just for the record that smoked striper bass you speak of? I might just have to stop in some day and pull up a chair w/ya. Smoked is great! I'll bring the Heineken. Can't be that bad. Never thought I'd eat catfish either til I hit the Army. The old cook said the small ones were great and he was right!
  17. Welllllll, look at what the dogs dragged in! Bout time! Was just about ready to put an All Points Bulletin out on you! Why did I know it was run by German technology somehow? Sheesh. These places in the US are insane. I watched my PrimaLuna amp come from LA to Ohio by way of about 49 other states. Somehow it got to Ohio in the 7 days they said it would. That was UPS. When Nikon specified everything had to go DHL it was crazy. A LONG time ago and few places to drop it off. Today it's cake. Gonna be interesting watching how those albums come. Glad you slipped in!
  18. @Tarheel Hope the Swankster responds well to the dental work. You're just going to have to do a better job brushing his teeth. Floss too. Gotta use the floss! He can't snarl at the mailman with no teeth! More rain sliding thru today so there's that. Clearing up and pushin the temp up into the low to mid 70's for the weekend. Next week more nice temps so I'm just about ready to scratch winter off the hit list. It'll sort. That's just funny. I thought I was the only one who asked myself that question. I've got gear and lp's coming from everywhere and usally track it for the laff. Had a good one yesterday. Picked up a couple lp's from Great Briton which were 72$ so I hit the go button and they were on the way. THEN I looked at the final bill wondering how much shipping was. Usually it's 15 or so. Yes, Sir! Only $32 for shipping. Should be a hoot watching this one come in. USPS sends stuff to Philadelphia THEN to Ohio? Seriously??? "The whole world's gone mad." Nils Lofgren. Spot ON!
  19. Read about the LS in about 1964 and used what I learned to write a book report for a 9th grade English report. It all made sense. I have no clue what I first listened to. Probably some Brenda Lee, Lesley Gore or Motown. First true "system" I heard was a Fisher amp I think and a JBL Paragon a buddy's dad bought. He had a TV/record store and sold JBL speakers. I'm thinking that was part of the deal he cooked up w/JBL was the Paragon. I was amazed sittin on the couch hearing things I never heard before. Klipsch rigs were just totally outta my price range so I started w/a Marantz receiver, Dual 1229 and a pair of ESS AMT-1's. Added tons of Marantz gear cause I got it from a distrubuter at cost. Hooked a local TV store up w/Marantz gear so the guys gave me a break on my stuff. After that it was a complete Infinity RS 2.5 speakers system w/a stack rack full of SAE gear. THEN I made the move to Klipsch w/my LS, PrimaLuna and my trusty Linn turntable. Then stole a JBL SP128S sub at auction. Factor in about 110-20 feet of vinyl and I'm in my happy place. I'll also add that without the help of some of the guys in here it never would have happened. Wonder if I hit the lottery tonight so I can get new Jubes?

  21. That's not you! Quit it! 😂
  22. That's crazy when you think about it. The things she saw/lived thru during those years actually built the foundation of the USA. Just amazing when you think about it. Automobiles instead of horses, trucks, electricity, telephones, cinemas, medical technology just everything. Wait! I missed prohibition! 😂
