Thank-you for sharing the picture, and condolences on your loss.

 

I think I had the very same pajamas in 1981!

Sad to hear about your loss.  Was that a heavy sixer?

Thanks , I really don't remember but I don't think it was . I remember sometime after we got it we would have to shove something in behind the cartridge as something was loose in the cartridge port and eventually it got thrown out . I sure hope we didn't throw away a heavy sixer  :mad:  .

Thanks Bob , I am doing better but as many of us know that finality sure is hard to deal with .
