could someone please send me a receiver?

My wife won't let me buy anything else for the next month. Could someone please send me another Hitech 555. I'm sure somebody has an extra that they don't need. I've got a flying wing that needs a receiver. If you need my address just let me know. Thanks.

If everyone is like me, there is no such beast. That's why I end up buying more and more.
Even so, you didn't tell what channel you need. That WOULD help.

P.S. Since we're on the subject, anybody got an extra Dymond Super Turbo Charger that they don't need???

Open a toy savings account

My wife used to rag on me about spending on different stuff so I opened my own savings account and deposited a couple of hunderd dollars in it. Every paycheck $50 goes into it automatically.

In the last couple of years my wife hasn't bothered me about spending anymore, maybe because I gave her $5000 to buy some new furniture back then when we moved into our current house.

Well now that I think about it. We moved down here a year ago and she got a whole new living room set for just about that same amount! I forgot to bring that up to her. Well I'm going to show her who wears the pants in this family! I'm going to let her have it tonight. I'm not scared! I'm not scared at all.

Just remind her that your hobby removes A LOT of tension, and that, in the long run, it will save the marriage!!!

The furniture argument generally doesn't work in my experience since the claim is that we both or the whole family gets enjoyment from the furniture (or other household items), while the silly planes only bring joy to me. There are corollaries that would assert since I'm happy the whole family benefits. But, that's kind of a weak argument as well, imho.

Instead, you need to get her hooked on frivolous (sp?) things like Longaberger baskets, or Partylite candles, or rubber stamping. Then, as you type in your credit card number on Hobby Lobby's website, you can point to the $80 2002 Limited Edition Fishmonger's Basket that she just had to have.
(Although, I must admit I kind of like those silly baskets.)

I wear the pants in my family! (...and my wife said it would be OK for me to say that.)

Any extras that you can't use ripley I sure could.
Actually if any of you want to get rid of some AM rx I would be interested. I have an old ACE that I use and I have an AM deck. (I have a FM deck too though)

All I am asking for is one little receiver. Is that too much to ask. By the way, I'm pretty sure I'm going to confront my wife tomorrow. I can't do it today because I have to restring my flyswater and stack my BB's.

I had one, but I gave it to the last guy who asked. I do have an empty case (without electronics) if that will help get you started.

Send me $10.00 for shipping and handling and I'll be glad to send it right to you.
