    I Found One!!!!!

    Just had to post this. I have been looking for a FW for some time (on and off about 12 years), in the last few months I have ALMOST gotten a few. But as with so many other things in life these have JUST been out of reach (for one reason or another), but I have still been reading daily on the QB about others who have found the FW they had been looking for.
    Today was my day. I have been going to a few PAWN shops (because I have never had good luck finding a FW any place else), I walked in and only found a Whit from the 70's for sale. So another trip with out finding "The Machine". For some reason I walked back over to the back corner of the shop (computer area), and up on a shelf mixed in with the laptops and moniters - was an open black box!!! I stoped and took a second look - FW!!!!!!!!!. I called someone over to help me, so the young man came over and asked what he could help me with. I asked about the black box, he didn't know anything about it. Gave me the box and I pulled out the tray - FW, FW, FW!!!!!!. Asked if I could take it out, he told me to go for it as long as I could get it back in!!!. IT LOOKS NEW!!!!!, and it works like a DREAM. Didn't have my glasses with me, so not too sure of the price. Had to ask the price to be sure I was seeing what I thought I was seeing. He told me it was $49.00 for this OLD thing. She came home with me!!!!! The best money I have spent in a long time. Now I need a name for my new (old), FW.
    Sorry this was so long, but I'm still on a "FW HIGH"

    I can imagine you trying to remain calm when he said the words, $49.00. lol. I would have been squealing and screaming with excitement in my head, not trying to give away my cool to blow the cover off that awesome price.
