Retired And Have Nothing To Do Empty Retired And Have Nothing To Do

This is for the young guys to know what us old guy do. You get up and out of bed because you can't sleep. You go
and feed the fish in the fish tanks. Then you turn on the computer and look for that next coin to buy. Were is the
money for the next coin. So you see what you have to sell if your pocket is empty Smile . I know I will sell my stereo system
the one that my wife made me take out of the living room because the music was to loud for her Sad . Sitting in the
garage  playing a $2000.00 stereo system sitting on a  beach chair is no fun Smile . So here is a photo of one of my betta's.
Betta's watch you when you go to feed them maybe I should talk to them and they may listen Smile . I post this just to
have some fun with you guys.

It seems to me that you need a new hobby! What about bird watching? You get a list of all the birds in your state and then try find them. Or macro photography? Reading? I am reading a series, on book 19 of er…54? Or how about building and painting model cars or tanks? I have a whole US and a German Bolt Action army to build, and Gundam robots, and Warhammer models. Much more enjoyable than a silver dust collector.

They don't collect dust if you keep them in a box in a cupboard @ArcaneCollector . Don't your models collect dust? I'll have to ask younger nephew who's into that sort of thing. I agree with you about having hobbies though: I read (what's your mega-series?); grow my plants; minister to the cats; tease quokkaholics; go to the theatre, and have holidays and trips out. That still leaves plenty of time to check out silver.

I missed out on that I never got to read the book on how to do it Smile . I loved to do carpentry work but at the old age
and on blood thinners it does a number on me.

The models are for use in table top war games. Nerdvana! My epic series is the Horus Heresy. My problem is that I burn out hobbies. I’m seriously considering selling/trading all my silver coins for bog standard Britannia stacking. I find collecting a burden as I am not settled until I have completed the collection and then once I have, I’ve lost interest in it, and then end up selling it for a loss. Rolling Eyes

@AVG, what brand is your stereo system? I have a Yamaha system with ELAC speakers. A few years ago, I downsized to ELAC bookshelf speakers after my old Klipsch speakers blew. Nowadays, I mostly play Spanish guitar music. It's enjoyable and relaxing to listen to. I still have my Pioneer receiver and turntable that I purchased in 1981. That's when Pioneer used to make quality components. They're boxed away in the attic.

Horus Heresy looks interesting with its map and pieces. What scale are your models? Do you have any completed?  War games I used to play were produced by Avalon Hill and Strategy & Tactics.

Now I can see why your wife wanted it in the garage.Laughing Can't see the brand(s) of your components but I imagine it produced a great sound.

Your system was definitely audiophile material and I figure the Onkyo had the power output to handle all of those speakers.Cool

My dad put together a high-end component system in 1963. It lasted for years until my brothers and I blew his Acoustic Research speakers. In my dad's later years, he listened to classical music on TV or while sitting in his car in the garage. He always loved classical music. My dad passed away in February at 93 years old.

Sorry to hear of your loss. I enjoyed music for years I had Acoustic Research speakers AR9's which i bought back in 1980 in upstate N.Y. and took them
to Florida in 1990 . I used them for another ten years here in Florida. Gave to my older son who used a few years and then sold them

Thank you @AVG. I miss him so much.🥺

I don't know which AR model speakers he had but the sound was crystal clear. And I imagine the same for your AR9's. I'm pretty sure AR didn't gear their speakers for a large bass reflex sound. Probably a passive set-up. And that was fine with me.

@AVG You have a really good coin collection; Why don't you create a YouTube channel so other people can see them?

You probably know @Admin (Jon) has a successful YouTube channel - https://www.youtube.com/user/jonrms

If I can help in anyway I will.

It take a lot to get going, and if you find someone who will really help you and not worry about their own interests you can be successful.

We can talk in private. and go though some great options.
