Remember when

Remember when this was the best there was?

My parents saved to be able to purchase this:  a record player/radio inside a nice cabinet.   It was a joy to them to be able to have such a nice item.

They were able to purchase a matching record cabinet to hold their albums as they accumulated.   Because they took very good care of anything they acquired, all the albums are in excellent shape.

I chose to keep these more as furniture memories than anything else.  They have filled 2  corners in the living room and serve as a table for various “treasures”  This week as we have been putting up the holiday decorations, I looked to see what records might be in this cabinet.   Ah, Christmas music – what fun to go back through those albums.

We have been enjoying listening to these old records – songs, Handel’s Messiah, etc.  After Christmas there is Hawaiian music, classical, and spiritual music.   I’m so happy I saved these and someday I hope one of our children will treasure them as well.
