The Olden Days

We are home from vacation ( sniff sniff). We got back yesterday afternoon. Its always a little depressing coming home from vacation. All the laundry that needs to be done, stuff needs to be put away, and you are back to real life.


We went to St. Augustine for our vacation this year and had a great time. I have tons of pictures to post and stories to tell about our trip. But for right now, the laundry is calling my name.


I will leave you with a VERY funny story from our trip.


One of the days we were there we visited St. Augustine's lighthouse. After climbing to the top of the lighthouse ( more on that later ), we went into the little lighthouse museum. Lots of neat things in there including this:





Is that beautiful or what. A hand cranked record player. Anyway, on to the funny part. When we got over to it I hear Danyelle say "Wow Gavin, look at this!"

Gavin walks over and says " What is that?"

Danyelle's answer? "This is what they played CD's on in the olden days."

OMG- Ken and I nearly fell on the floor with laughter. And the look on Danyelle's face was priceless because she couldn't understand why we were laughing!

Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend :) Vacation updates this week!

That's too funny. You know, I mentioned to my husband once that our daughter won't be familiar with the concept of a music library that can't be contained in an MP3 device. I remember buying single songs on cassette tapes and even 45s when I was a kid. Now you can buy just about any song you like on iTunes.

That is too funny! Glad you had a nice vacation. It does seem like you need another vacation once you get home and do all the unpacking, laundry, etc...

That's so funny. Yeah, back in the olden days, I remember when 8-tracks were so much cooler than records because you could "jump" to different songs with a touch of a button. Am I ancient or what?
