Vinyl Endures, Tied 107 Yr Old Early Snow Record + Daily Draw

Amazingly enough even after stuffing ourselves full of Sunday dinner, there was enough energy left to bring in all the vinyl from the storage shed. I held my breath while Anah put on the first record, and, wow, it actually played, no skips, a bit of static (but that's part of the experience). The speakers on the new toy seem decent enough or it could just be that my hearing loss makes the quality of sound unimportant.



Incidentally Bob Marley was not the first album played. Anah chose Working Man's Dead which is still one of my faves. While the Dead was always best as a live act, some of their studio work is memorable.

The kids were excited by the sheer number and variety of the albums we had saved and it was cool to watch their reactions. While you could see scratches on some of the platters; all I have tried, so far, have played well. We created a space for the player in the living room where it can remain at least till it is time to put up the Christmas tree. We got enough joy out of the thing to make it worth the $$ spent.



Also, we have snow that arrived yesterday. Started out with that lovely stuff denoted "Wintry Mix. Icy pellets tinkled among the leaves on the deckand alerted me to the weater. We ended up with a couple of inches and tied the record for earliest snow in this area. Most of it is gone by now, but the deck is still covered.

I love Sedna's message: You are enough. You have enough to be supplied with your needs. This is an abundant Universe and your needs will always be provided for. Also a very beautiful card. Sedna is an Inuit goddess with strong connections to the Sea.
