Antiques of our life

My 19 year old son yelled for me to come into his room to see something "really neat". He had a friends turntable and was playing a record on it. "Isn't this the great?", he said. It was hard to believe that he had never seen a turntable. He really liked it and collected a few "vinyls" to play on it. I told him that back in the day we just called them records, or albums. I told him about the other speeds like 45 rpm - you had to have an adapter for those records to fit on the spindle. He wasn't sure how to "change tracks" and I showed him how to lift the needle and move it to the next song. It was strange to see him so excited over something that I had considered just an everyday thing when I was a kid. We listened to the first album my parents ever let me have, "Meet the Beetles".



We still say, "dial the telephone", but we haven't done that in years. I think I will find a dial phone and see what he thinks of that!

too funny! Our daughter called the other day to see if we still had a turntable... seems one of the grandkids bought some records at a yard sale...

Thanks, now I feel really OLD! Have a great weekend!

Yes, I had records when I was a kid... seems so long ago now.

It's great that you could show your son how to use a new (old) piece of equipment!

We've come a long way, baby! Or someone has.... :)
It's hilarious, isn't it, how fascinated the kids are with our "old", neat stuff?
