    New toy! Wife is not so happy about it though. But she just won the soundbar debate. So we are getting a new tv for the bedroom with a soundbar and a wall mount and sound bar for our tv living room. The only plus is I get to put my RTA12B back in my listening room while I tear apart the Infinity speakers.

    Got this earlier this year. Lots of fun too. About $120 online. No dead spot where the puck can land. You need a table for it though.

    Played a lot of Foosball in college. Played goalie and had a girlfriend who played forward and we would beat 95% of the people we played. Her brother was a very good player and taught her how to play. The guys hated getting beat by us. I also had a good friend who played forward (he was better than her) and we would put a quarter up and play all night on that quarter.

    I would have a table, but I messed my wrist up in a skiing accident and I can't play now.

    BTW, nice table.

    but, but... I like our neighbors -- it would likely tick 'em off if I deconstructed their wall.

    That movie ranks #1 on the top 500 list I believe.

    I have this framed poster that I'll hang up again some day. ;)

    I’ll never forget the first time I watched it,
    thinking Andy hanged himself in his cell the night he escaped - even the morning guard’s reaction, staring into the (unbeknownst to the watcher) empty cell. Man, was I ever pissed, thinking it was going to end that way!

    Easily one of my most “re-watchables”...

    NOW THAT'S THE WAY YOU USE THE SPOILER BUTTON PEOPLE!!! I've stopped reading threads on this forum about movies and TV shows until I've seen the movie/show. You guys can't keep a secret! And for anyone that hasn't seen Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid, they die at the end! :open_mouth:

    I love that graph! ^^^^^^^^^^^^

    I just got ahold of 36 more rolls so I'm good for a few more months. Wife has her own stash. :D

    I'll bet Sam's Club will have plenty in stock later in the year when I need more.

    When I zoom in it looks like it may say "Special" on the side.

    Oh, you are right. 1954 to 1955 Buick Riviera Special. Looks identical. Thanks Milito.

    CH46E,
    Really nice pictures and history of your family.

    The three "ports" on the front fenders has been a Buick thing through the years.

    It's a 1955 Buick Special. My parents had one; a convertible. Two-toned green. Very, very cool car. :)

    That's a car that doesn't get as much love as it deserves.
