Bunk-up! - According to my memory it depended on if they wanted a baby, then they wouldn't leave you alone. Sadly for her it turned out my first wife couldn't. I really didn't worry one way or the other - what will be will be.

Loads of action, which types are you talking about. Lots of building hi-fi, lots of sleeping - I am getting really good at that, holidays when I get the time, lots of talking crap on here, lots of taking the piss out of people who spout even bigger mounds of crap. Everything a randy young 70 year old should be doing - the sleeping is good.

Oh, you crack me up Doc :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

I think we all desire more action than we are already getting. But then most of the fun is in the chase and when you have already caught them it all becomes a bit dull :shifty: I agree about sleep it is one of the things i look forward to, in fact i woke up this morning and all i could think about was going to bed tonight :lol:

Glad you are having fun building all this black friday hifi. I am so envious, in winter when the weather is shite i would rather be building hifi

I just wish I wouldn't keep trying to solder my fingers together.

Have you been handling it by the wrong end again ? I feel your pain. My lovely 1970's carpet at my mum's got a rather nasty soldering iron shaped burn in it the other day. Had to change the tip just in case. It's a gòd job she can't walk up stairs any more otherwise i would be getting the mother of all bollockings.
