Heck, if you can, then I'll take a stereo from Best Buy and put the rest in medic8r Jr's college fund.


As in most cases, you were correct (yawn). No one was getting $100k in cash. You were to choose to "commit" the entirety to one or the other. I thought that was implied, but I see you guys need stricter rules. Come with me and Cam to the Ranch (yes, I'll wait outside for you, too). I'll bet someone there can "fix" that right up for you.

I'm going to print that out and put it on the refrigerator for the wife and son to read. I can use all of the help I can get.

I'd definitely go for the audio equipment.

A couple of years ago I was driving on a long, rough unpaved portion of desert road in AZ to Grand Canyon West (ripoff attraction - avoid at all costs!!). I was in my modest Mazda CX7 & quickly came up behind a new Corvette that was obviously struggling on the miles of dusty washboard. The Vette probably cost double what I paid for my ride but I easily passed him & went on my merry way.

I always wanted one of those newer Vettes, but a CUV meets my needs far better & they are actually a very nice ride. Plus I could easily upgrade to a bunch of M80s, VP180, QS8s & a big amp & a couple of EP800s with the money left over...

I see you've elected to omit the "(yawn)."
I'd keep it in; adds to the misteek.

Print this post, too! Then they'll know you're smarter than everyone else. That'll make a cozy three. (Smiley face)

JB, it wasn't a misteak. It was a "snobby spellers" joke for JP. Well, OK, it was a joke for me and an insult for JP. Isn't that how all "this" is supposed to work?

My SpellBot barely raised an eyebrow, recognizing the snark as poetic license ...
