Yep - I'm still around. Still with just the lonely Elvin - but you never know, maybe he'll get some sibs one of these days.

Hope all you guys are doing well and you're getting good prices on Electra's. I still keep tabs now and then on ebay stuff- seems like stuff I wouldn't look twice at is now getting some top dollar sales.

Jead, how is it around you since the hurricane a couple of years ago? Sorry you are still down to the 1 Electra, but stop in every once in a while.

I don't know if you had stopped in here in a while, but we did lose Ozark Cannon Joe to cancer.

Wow - Sad news about Ozark. He was a straight up guy IMO and I'll be thinking of him today.

Post Sandy - things are still pretty much the same here. "They" say the economy is improving and if it is, it's very slow. Maybe some sectors are improving but I don't see it. Like most Northern tier states we had a tough winter and are glad to see the snow is finally gone (for now -my last little bit left yesterday). Work has been spotty so I'm still in the same boat. Hangin' on and gettin' by - still have all my fingers and toes so that's good news.

Hope all is well with you - looks like it's been a little slow here in Electra-land. Seems to me, with my limited research, that there are fairly slim pickings and a general across the board price increase. Not many "deals" I've seen in the last year or so.

Glad you are still around. Yea winter here has been tough. For space reasons all my Electra's are up in Vermont right now. I had to snow shoe up the driveway to go visit them last weekend. Let me know if you are ever in NYC and want to meet for a beer.
