Song for Friday...for the record...

Seems like vinyl is making a big comeback and my oldest niece was hot on the trail to start her collection while she was here.
We scoured the Sally Ann for .75 cent deals and she bought a few on her
own at the local music shop here in the village.
It was so strange explaining the technology of LPs and turntables.
Something that was a huge part of my life for many years.
Whenever I moved into a new place, the first thing
to be set up was the stereo.
Had to have the tunes to keep the world in order.
So this week we've been spinning some vinyl
and myself, I've been flirting with nostalgia going through my collection.
Some of the movie's Meaghan rented this past week, strangely
featured A LOT of music from the '70s and '80s
So this week it's all about the humble record.
Have a great weekend all!
Keep on spinnin'...

I am immersed in the land of girls.
Nail polishing, video watching, cut off shorts, snack eating girls!
Much too busy to sit and write a proper post but will take a breath soon to catch up...
In the mean time...hope you're all well and enjoying your summer...
