Don't forget the record players with the switch by the turntable for 78, 45, and 33 1/3 RPM records.

Still have one. Used it last winter to convert some 78's to mp3's.

4-way test
1. Is it the Truth?
2. Is it Fair to all concerned?
3. Will it build goodwill and better friendships?
4. Will it be beneficial to all concerned?

This was in every elementary classroom that I was in. I never knew why it was there, but read it over and over again. It made an indelible impression on my life.

My daughter asked me, "How did you rewind a record?"

That's right! Our permanent records! Who's got them now?! Were they sent along after us, everywhere we went? Suddenly, it's all falling into place....

And then you find out, quite too late, that nobody gives a rat's behind what you did in school.

Several years ago, while browsing through my 500 or so albums, my nephew asked me: "What kind of books are these?" He was so fascinated when I took the record out of the sleeve, plopped it on the turntable, and played the same music he heard from his parents' CD player.

(Although I remember making faces at the drivers that were looking right at me)

We had a little VW station wagon in the mid 60s that had three rows of seats, the farthest back having two little bench seats that faced each other. Probably looked cute on the drawing board and to parents in the showroom but it was cramped and uncomfortable - zero sprawl quotient. These were the days before mandatory seat belts IIRC.
