Himself’s new toy, a 1960s-era Aiwa TP-60R. Even smaller and cooler than the Concord F-20 Sound Camera used on the original Mission Impossible TV Series. A bargain off eBay, because although it looked brand new and had all its parts (including the battery cover, which according to Himself, has a tendency to wander off over the years), it did not work.
Until Himself got his hands on it.
It took him less than an hour to get it running. He’ll now spend several days returning it to a pristine, zen state.
Then he will sleep with it under his pillow for the rest of his life.
I’m just kidding about the pillow part.
