It’s been a week since the Big Red V-day but I still have some following up to do. I want to share with you what my sweet husband gave me (which I will get to hopefully later today) — but I also wanted to ask for help with the present that almost was. I wanted to ask you all this before the holiday, but I had concerns, primarily that my husband would see what I was up to and any surprise would be ruined. But now that it doesn’t matter (I told him) — I need some help.
See, I found these two completely cool speakers at Agent Gallery Chicago. They are both vintage about the same time as our house. My husband has mentioned a number of times while helping me in the garden how nice it would be if he didn’t have to carry to iPod speaker outside, running extension cords and perching it precariously on the milk box in order to get us our much needed gardening tunes.
He has this vision of M*A*S*H-like war camp speakers that would be mounted on the large electrical pole on our driveway. Reconfigured to be able to broadcast iPod output throughout our garden. Cool right?
And being the completely selfless person that I am — who has no ulterior motive to get him to help me more often, I thought it would be wonderful to see if I could figure this thing out.
I got as far as finding the speakers, but have no idea what to do next. Any ideas for converting these into something I can hook up to modern technology?
Oh and did I mention the garden party throwing aspect to this whole idea. Fun!
