    Holy Moley, @Ike Willis 15 squirrels? I've never eaten squirrel or rabbit. They're too cute. I have had gator in the past as well, but I'm not that adventurous these days, and am not sure I'd want to eat them based on the places I see them hanging out.

    I'll have to see if the passionflowers are still around by then @Yvonne Smith. We've been inundated with outsiders at the beach, and they tear the place up and leave tons of trash behind. The police are supposed to be cracking down on it, but we're an afterthought, since we're geographically separated from the actual city, so they don't spend nearly as much time here as they do elsewhere. I have heard about the fruit, and that would be nice to taste. I think it takes several years of the plant being established before the fruit grows, but it would be nice to plant them and see what happened.

    I saw this from a distance at the flea market Sunday and I put a little pep in my step. A crowd had gathered around it when I reached the spot. The vendor was really trying hard to make a sell but no one was biting. I loved it and wanted it. A man walked up and stood beside me as if he was interested. His arms were across his chest and so were mine. We stood there a couple of minutes as the crowd got bigger. The vendor stated 'I'm just asking $25.00.' That's what I was waiting to hear and maybe he was too but he didn't walk up to exam the piece. I turned to him and said 'I'm waiting.' He smiled and said with a foreign accent, 'Oh, no, no, no my car is too small.' I shouted 'I'll take it!' :rolleyes:

    It has been in the back of my Jeep since Sunday. Today my son and his neighbor carried it in the house. Ideas were racing through my head on how I could put my mark on this piece. After close examination I found the manufacturer's name and looked it up on the internet. I found this

    Yup, yup, yup :D:D:D.

    I switched out the power cord and it works great, radio, speakers and even the needle on the turntable. Everything is original not like the one in the photo (in a video that console was upgraded to have bluetooth capabilities). The only thing it didn't have was the 45 adapter but I only play LPs anyway. When I looked it over at the flea market I thought someone custom made the bar unit but that's the original design.
