Ahhh, The Good Old Days

When was the last time you saw one of these babies?
Would your kids even know what it was if they saw it?
Mine do.
Mr Bird has been sort of obsessed with them for the last 2 years.
He has been looking for a decent used one at local thrift stores for longer than I can remember.
He never did find one worth buying.
Then, when all hope was fading, one of his favorite geek sites had this cool one that hooks up to the computer/stereo system on sale for $50.
He snatched that thing up so fast I hardly had time to blink.
Needless to say we've been having fun with vinyl at our house. Mr Bird has been to every thrift store in a 35 mile radius of our house to clean them out of records.
He has found Jazz, Latin, Disney, other kid music and even some salsa and fox trot music.
You know, the good stuff.
The stuff from way back when.
Way back when they did not have swearing in otherwise good songs.
The best part?
He gets whole albums for 25 cents.
We have enough records to last well into next year without any repeats.
We love it when Daddy come home and puts on a record and we all dance like crazy people around the living room.
I know, I know, we're just a touch crazy, that's all.
More on that next week!

You guys are just so dang fun! When are you going to take me bargain shopping with you and I don't want records?

I'm coming over from Mormon Mommy Blogs, asking for your help. I am in the running for a round trip airfare paid ticket to Connecticut, to meet a friend I became acquainted with through blogging. She is a super fun person and is holding this contest. I entered a funny story titled "Grapejuice Floaties, Now Marry Me." The person whose story receives the most votes will win a trip to meet this generous lady, whom I'm hoping to meet. The voting ends tonight-midnight. I am ahead for now but there is a story coming up from behind out of nowhere and I would so, so, appreciate your help. Her blog is and the voting is on the sidebar on the right. "Grapejuice, Floaties" Just go there and cast a vote for me, please. Thanks so much-you're awesome! ♥♥
