    There is STRENGTH in Numbers!!

    Friends...
    I want to formally thank the following forum members and snorchat participants for helping me with a terrible personal problem...

    Reegs
    Garritan
    Buckshead
    Stephanie Pray (the artist formerly known as Moviemaestro)

    I was having trouble convincing my wife that I REALLY had to have an AKAI EWI USB and have it NOW, not on December 25th.

    These four brave souls supported their friend (and intellectual guiding light) Snorlax by mounting an intense email campaign aimed at getting Mrs. Snorlax to relent and let Snor buy his AKAI now.

    SUCCESS!!!

    After reading the vast influx of 4 emails, Mrs. Snorlax saw the error of her ways and relented. Snor has placed his order with Patchman Music & will soon be using the EVI portion of this fine device, of course with the mighty ARIA player.
    Now all I need is talent. Anyone wanna loan me some??

    A tip of the hat to these supporters for their good humor and willingness to play along.

    Snor.

    Wow! Forum spousal petition works! I thought it was only a legend.

    I need to think of something I truly need now to see if it will work on my wife.

    Didn't know that your wife must be convinced to give you a toy for making more wind.

    Well, Snor, you are indeed fortunate, and should be very happy.

    However, I claim one up on you. My Honda Wagon died painfully a few weeks ago, and I was really not ready to cough up the price of a replacement, especially since I still had my Camry. My son realized that a tote vehicle and second vehicle is necessary because of my remote location. So he gave me a replacement, totally free, including registration and transfer fees. Now all I need do is get used to driving the macho monster! Biggest thing around, it is!

    I wonder if I could drop some hints to my other son that I could use a new computer?

    So, what did you have to buy your wife in return?

    That's the way it always seems to work around my house.

    A Master's degree...and my pledge to increase the cooking & cleaning quotient during the three years she's working on it.
