What's a record player?

Conversation with my 7 year old at bedtime.

"Mommy, what was your room like when you were a kid?"

"Oh, I had a canopy bed, a dresser with a big mirror, night stand, lots of Barbies and dolls and a record player with some records."

"Mommy, what's a record player? "


I feel so old.

Of course, she doesn't know what a record player is!

When is the last time you have actually seen one?

And how do you explain that arm that goes on the record with that little needle that actually make the record play?

Oh, I just wonder about the day that her child asks her what a CD is!!!! It will come sooner than she thinks, believe me. I can still remember the day when I played my 45 of Kool and the Gang's Celebration on that record player over and over again.
Here is a little revisit! I hate to even admit that this was one of my favorite songs!
Or what about this one? How does that mark my age? It was released in 1980!
And of course, who could forget this one on SOLID GOLD to boot!?! 1983 people!
Really does Dancing with the Stars have anything on those Solid Gold Dancers?
Last but not least - my absolute fave!
Okay, glad we could go on this little trip back in time together. Thanks for coming along!
I heart the 80's.
