Once again I am selling a piece of electronica over the internet. Naaa, not ebay. Audiogon. I have used it many times in the past and haven't been burned yet.
One time a pilot from Mexico flew his boss to Atlanta or somewhere close (nice private jet) then took a commercial flight, rented a car and came to see what he was buying from me. That's dedication. He is a super nice guy and I pimp him from time to time for a free jet ride... which hasn't happened and probably won't. It's not a toy.
Recently we had dinner with our mayor of this here community and her husband, a pilot for one of the airlines. It's a bit of a stretch but he's a John Wayne man. Squinting into the horizon. Strong handshake. A character.
