While going through all the boxes with the stuff we left in the states I came across this.
My 45 collection. It wasn't huge or extensive, but it was all mine. Rick Springfield, Van Halen, Tiffany, Elvis, Elton John, Twisted Sister, Journey, The Police, Donna Summer, The Chords, Chicago...and so much more. My kids looked at these records and then at me like I was the most ancient person on earth. Too bad I don't own a record player to show them how music was meant to be heard. None of this ipod headphones in your ear kind of stuff for me when I was a kid. We heard static and skipping and the sound of the needle as it played the song for us. And we liked it! I'm sure my kids are grateful that I didn't have a way to subject them to it all! One of these days...one of these days!
