Fisher Workout
« on: November 14, 2015, 02:51:33 PM »
Today, I had the house to myself.  So, I like to cook so, it being cold in the norteast, I made a batch of gumpki.  That's cabbage rolls to non eastern Europe people.  It's a very long process that lends itself to what I call "oompah time" and takes most of a day. 

Between lps, classical radio and both 2 and 4 track tape, the console and I worked a good 5 hours today.

What a great way to spend a day with two great hobbies...  music  of so many recording methods and cooking. 

This day was like driving my old Cadillacs.  Putting the Fisher through its paces and never skipping a beat...
Suddenly it's 1961...

I served my mortuary internship in the town the silver Brougham came from.  It was a small Cadillac Chevy dealer.  I saw that car on the lot new.  It's the only car I never tore off the dealer emblem.

I upgraded the audio system to the factory optional Delco cd/cassette with door mounted speakers.  It's truly amazing.  A good instrumental cd like Arthur Fiedler while floating down the highway in cruise...  heaven.

Naturally I prefer to be in the house with the 500B and/or console going (anyone turn on all the hifi gear and tune into the same radio station?)

Both are great hobbies that bring out the best in people.
