Moving In

The modern house of 1980, complete with harvest gold and avocado green.  Ah. Lovely.

But there's lots of room and some hidden surprises.  Like the old record-player-tuner hidden in the corner end table.  Open the doors, and it slides out.

My children had never seen such!  Oh yes, they'd seen turn tables, but nothing like this, complete with record changer.  I told them that we may not have had "6 CD changers" in our cars, but we were not without entertainment.

I put several records (LP's) on the changer and showed them how they dropped one record at a time, the arm with the phonograph needle moved into place and slowly lowered itself.  Amazing!

There are some beautiful hydrangeas in the yard, as well.  An ample kitchen, and lots of room.  New adventures.

Yay! Congratz Joe! And I recognize the West Side Story album there by the record player. Good choice.

I love the record player! I wish I still had my first turntable. It was portable. The turntable folded up into its case and the two speakers clipped to the sides.

Congratulations on the move and the place to move. I hope you find peace, joy, and love there.

I never gave up turntables. I have a huge collection of vinyl, titles that will never be transferred to CD or MP3. Then there's the sound of vinyl, warm and lovely in spite of a little surface noise.

Hope the new place is a great fit for you!
