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.

    Hubby and I were having a similar discussion last night – except that the cabinet was one that he helped build when he worked at a fine furniture factory. That cabinet and ALL the records have moved to MANY different houses with us – and we never listen to them (CDs are so much easier!). We’re really not sure what we’re going to do with them – the cabinet takes up a lot of room, AND hubby has his heart set on another move…!
