Not a 45 record but...
It seems appropriate after yesterday's post about my first 45 rpm record, to note my activities today. I was about 14, maybe even 16 at the time that took place and I was thrilled beyond belief to have that music available to play almost anytime I wanted. Well, that is, when my mother was able to tolerate another repetition or it.
Today, I was searching for a gift for my soon-to-be 16 year-old granddaughter. She loves her iPod as much as I loved my Hi Fi so it seemed perfect to buy her a gift card so she can download music from iTunes.
I hope she enjoys searching through the list of songs as much as I enjoyed thumbing through the records at the record store when I bought that Elvis Presley record. Too bad she won't be able to put the artist's picture up on the wall the way I tacked up all my favorite record album sleeves on my bedroom wall.
One advantage she has though: she can play her iPod most anywhere without someone complaining... "if I have to listen to that one more time...!"
