So sorry I haven’t been back to writing much as yet. Left arm is still rather sore. Damn television!
My turntable hasn’t been set up lately. I do miss it.
I have continued trying to put all of my V.A. minidiscs onto the computer in the other room, in an attempt to listen to ‘everything’ in my collection.
Also continuing with flirting with the idea of throwing in the proverbial towel, as regards record collecting. Never going to find it all. I do enjoy the chase, but…
I tend to go kinda nuts during the week – surely a good sign that it’s time for me to retire? I sold my mom’s car recently – that went well!
If I stopped blogging…would the world forget my whining voice?
