i’ve found you’ve got to look back at the old things and see them in a new light. – john coltrane



‘it’s called a record player and it plays records that

go ’round and ’round and the music comes out,’

says one little grandie

to another

when proudly showing off

his new home in america


all of the treasures

both old and new

that can be found inside.

  1. I still have my 45 player but the whole albums are so exciting and would take longer to play than just one song, Beth! Awesome and so sweet that the grandies are enjoying new and old things, found in your cottage and here in their new ‘home.’ This one is really cool! I like the John Coltrane quote, too. Enjoy!!

  2. Ha! Reminds me of a reader who commented that she spent some time tying to explain to her tween what a phone book was.

    It must be so great to have all your grandies back where you can be a part of their lives on a regular basis and watch them grow up. šŸ˜€

  3. I have one of those ( though a little more modern) that hasn’t been used since I bought it. All my big, round black treasures ( and some smaller ones) are still in boxes in my garage. What a waste.

  4. Yes, I remember them and I remember when they disappeared. Now they are back. What’s next? Bellbottoms and tube tops? (I used to put plastic horses on the records and pretend they were racing on a racetrack! We had a lot of scratched up records!) šŸ˜‰
