Hi Diamondog

It is really great to hear you are loving the new M100s. Besides the obvious bass advantages to the M100s we have been making a lot of improvements to the family of curves over the years which has a big impact on the overall performance.

Cheers,

So far so good and of course I may have exaggerated slightly for effect. But don't tell my Mother in Law I said that. If I'm not picking on her, she asks what's wrong or if I'm sick.

If she ever read what you write here, she'd know just how sick you are. Thank you for that.

Speaking of MIL's, I would like to have mine euthanized, but she's to big to lift her up onto the veterinarian's table.

I was thinking that a couple of penny nails and 42" of twine across step #3 might do the trick. We tell her repeatedly, "Do NOT go down the basement stairs, they're too dangerous for you now" which she does at least 4 or 5 times a week to "check on" things. Of course, she has no clue as to how any of these things is supposed to operate, so she assumes it's broken and calls an $80 p.h. repair guy on Sundays ($160 p.h.) to learn that there's nothing wrong at all.

Maybe if I can get her when she's wearing her heavy woolen socks, the twine will not leave evidentiary marks on her ankles.

Look, I'm open to any and all suggestions, especially since she's getting kinder, more tolerant and understanding, and more rational with each passing day (ya, sure she is).

Aw c'mon, she's 84, she's had her time. Now she's just wasting heating oil.

Bob, there are less permanent forms of revenge for dealing with old crusty people than those that come with life imprisonment. I can personally attest to all of these as being effective, but non-lethal.

My personal favorite....
-- Print a fake article and carefully glue it into thier Reader's Digest on how it was recently discovered that Bob Barker was a crack addict in his final years and ran a terribly inhumane puppy mill to get drug money.

-- Convince them that jalapenos are a new kind of Bread and Butter Pickle. Printing fake labels helps.

-- Change thier brand of tea. Tell them it is no longer available any more. After getting bored with thier daily grumbling about how awefull the new stuff is, reveal that you secretly switched the boxes but the tea bags were the same.

-- Go into thier cable box and set a timer so it changes channels when the evening's local news program or Coronation Street is about to come on. (On PEI here, the evening news "Compass" is like a religion. It may not have the same effect in your locality.)

-- (This one takes some initial bravery.) Replace all of the underwear in thier underwear drawer with thongs. You need 100% replacement to be effective.



Hope this helps.

Thanks, Andrew, those are some great and mean ideas. Unfortunately, revenge of any kind won't do. We really do need a permanent solution. As long as she is breathing and can talk (moan and complain) she's a menace to all living things and needs to become no longer extant. On the way-too-bad side, of her 10 siblings, 7 lived past 90 and, at present, there is nothing (medically) wrong with her at all.

Maybe the winter will be way bad and she will finally fall---in the snow---and we won't find her until the spring. Maybe we won't even remember to look for her then!

But you know what? I bet you she'd still be alive and, eventually, make a full recovery.

They can't prosecute Voodoo, can they?

n.b. I AM waiting for my M100's, so this really isn't a derailment. "Oh(m) I can't stand it. I wish they'd arrive already." There, back on track.

You know, if she were to visit, and you had one of those heavy, tall, slim M100s on spongy carpet....without outriggers.....

NOW we're getting somewhere! Thanks, Mark. At least you're taking this seriously.
