Tom,

Take your time and do it up the best ya' can. I appreciate it, Don. Inquiring minds want to know.

Tom,

Currently dealing with serious health issues in aging family member with dementia. :( Sad situation. Review will be forthcoming is my only commitment at this juncture. Free time is prioritized. Review is not near the top. As everyone knows, a through review will be very time consuming. Current mindless posts take all of 30 seconds.

However, the Whisper XD's do not disappoint these ears in any area. I am very happy with my choice. =D>

Dear Lord, my bad. I was trying to add humor to the thread and it apparently backfired. Best of luck and best wishes to a greater outcome than that which has been portrayed here. Prayers sent and the review will come in due time.

Family first. [-o<

Tom,

No problem. Things a bit upside down and unsettled, to say the least. Thanks for the prayers. [-o<

Hello, Don. Do you have some time to offer your observations on the speakers yet?

Tom,

Spent yesterday in er room with dad. Ran to concert last night. Today at nursing home with terri visiting her mom. Review is just not a priority in the scheme of things. Juggling free time with ongoing crisis
i am sorry, when things calm, i will try and move up on list. As i post, terri's mom has developed a compulsive behavior disorder & constantly yells help. It makes a person feel so helpless.

As we get older the only thing worse than having to take care of our parents is wondering what it will be like & who will take care of us.


Trult, getting old is not for sissies.

My prayers are with you Don.

Don, I hope to one day not to have my family in your position. Family first. Beyond that? Nothing else matters.

My thoughts are with you.
