I'm proud to say my record collection has inspired my close friend's dear sweet 16 year old daughter to get a record player. We go hunting for records together now. She loves soundtracks especially. She found Pretty in Pink for me :)

That's so cool!  She obviously understands the value of history.

I have an ancient Victrola and 78's.  The sound gives you goosebumps.  I hope she gets the same reaction from the record player! 

Passing on heritage, right?

I was looking at one of my Cars albums and my son goes "OMG! Mom has a crush on dead people!" lol because that's how old he thinks they must be.

I swear, one of these days I'm going to figure out, or have dh figure out, how to hook my Atari 2600 up so I can finally beat my kids at a video game!

A few weeks ago, I kicked ds1's butt at Pac-Man in a campground arcade : )
