..... threw me a surprise birthday party (more than a month in advance) that I totally did not expect.
She asked that for gifts people contribute what they would like towards the BE100 that I have been talking about for some time. The cake has a pic of a BE100 on it.
Now I am 650 dollars closer!
Combined with a few things I have planned for ebay I should have enough to buy it.
But I won't make the purchase till next summer as I don't want to max out my finances right now.
I plan on trying it out first as well. IF I don't like it I can consider a Mesa Mark V and have money left over!
