    George, you have treated this world as well as any I know. You give from the heart.

    Now you have grown old and see that there is no growing young again.

    If you are to be good to yourself then the time to do so is now.

    If I am to be good to you my time grows short.

    I'll speak freely. When I was 3 days from homelessness you gave, not lent ,me the $3000,00 dollars I needed to get a trailer.

    Patti and I are cashing in a retirement fund to acquire a better trailer than we could afford back then.

    We both feel that when we get the money due us we very much wish to repay you your kindness.

    So...Hoe may this be done? Cash always seems to please.":O}

    Or maybe part might be re payed in television currency. Allow us to seduce your eyes!! ":O}
    How big a TV can you apartment hold?
    A 65 inch TV is 57 inches across. an you need sit 5-8 feet away.

    this may take another month or so as they (Rolls Royce pension fund) have been dragging their feet.
    I would like you to have a new set. But this is entirly up to you. ":O}

    Say what? I gave you $3000? Pardon my frankness but I NEVER gave you or anybody else $3000. It goes against my principles to even contemplate such an action! As a good Capitalist I demand the world give money to ME! Why I don't even have to earn it, ask Massa Lump, who never earned an honest dollar in his entire life. Now THAT is a generous kinda guy!

    Actually, I was happy to give you and Patti 3 grand. It decreased my bank account considerably---but what are friends for? I remember that using a bank wire transfer gave me the willies--right there in black and white it said "we guarantee you nothing. If the money doesn't go where you want it to--too bad. You have NO recourse." In plain freakin' print!!

    Needless to say, I'll never use a bank wire transfer again. Never. I'm very happy that you and your spouse wound up in just the right place!! What fantastic luck! I somewhat envy your situation but I couldn't handle the rigors of being far from the city. I'm old and falling apart, so it goes.

    It tickles me that you want to buy me a tv. Thank you very much! I hope this humble Samsung 40" will last forever, but can I please, please take a rain-check on your supremely generous offer? Maybe I should strike while the iron is hot but if I miss out I'll live to tell the tale. Plus, you already gave me an expensive set of speakers for my computerizing machine. The sound from my PC has improved 300 percent! Thank you both again!!

    Darn, 55" is as small as the Sony A9G gets. Multi Espensivo to put it mildly. Aw shucks, I need a 50" as maximum size. Sigh.
    I wouldn't ask for a $2500 tv, period.

    Here's our situation. Assuming that we get the money OWED to us. We will be taking a cash out.

    Buy a new trailer and try to set ourselves up for Patti's retirement some time in (Most likely) the next 5 years.

    As far as we can tell this will be our last financial rodeo.

    We will be spending around 40 percent of these monies and reinvesting the rest.

    So as far as cash or prize goes,...it may be now or never.

    I found a real deal on a 65.

    https://www.vonstv.com/Basket.asp

    Unfortunately Most manufactures don't go smaller that 55 inch. as Oled doesn't go smaller than 55 inch.

    I was hoping we could both get the same size and model. EVERYONE says the OLED tests best in almost every critical area. We will of course go after the one YOU want.

    Can you make a 55 inch work for you? a 65 inch is 57 inch across and one should sit around 5 to 8 feet. away.
    2K wants you to sit much closer than 1080 recommend distance. A 55 inch would be even closer, under 6 feet away.

    But manufacturers are not trying very hard anymore to produce sets under 55 inch.

    If you can squeeze in a 55 we will have a much easier time getting you into something mind blowing. And you know how much I enjoy blowing your mind.":O}

    If you just can't make it fit, we will have to research a new to find your best fit. Look around find your best fit for size and quality. I have grown fairly conversant with the 55 and up sets and what they can and can't do.

    I'd be happy to guide you to your best options. But as I say, we want to get you what you want, you can fit in and what we can get the best deal on. We don't mind paying more so long as we can get you what we pay for

    Do a bit of poking about, take a few measurements, see what we can find for you in your situation. Damn I did foresee this...But I really wanted to get you that 65 I've been looking at.":O}

    We could be HDMI twins.":O}
    Please bear in mind that these are monies we feel we owe you. Anything under $2700 will be fine cash or prize, your choice.

    You are too kind and generous, I don't think it's really alright for me to take advantage of your amazingly nice offer. Please, buy yourself all of the tv that you want! 55" is out of the question, that's just too big for my clutter box of an apartment. Maybe the humble 40"er will last me for as long as I need it. Never having seen the wonders of modern televisions I don't feel that I'm missing out!

    Seriously, I decline your stunningly generous offer!

    Hardly generous to repay a kindness.
    How you can stand the thought of never seeing the Disney channel in full on Disney color I;ll never know.

    But be that as it may, as you wish. I may not be able, be in a position, to repay your kindness at a later date.
    and I'll admin this seems to trouble me more than it does you.

    But rest assured I'll do what ever I can in the future,you need only alert me to your need.

    Again thank you George.

    A gift is a gift without strings. You could have blown the money in Vegas. And yes, I would have been pained had you been that foolish. All the same, a gift is a gift. No need whatsoever to repay my kindness. But please pass a kindness along if you can.
    I'd be surprised if you haven't done that already.
