MARILYN - Nice Localism post.  I can't believe that anyone still has 78's!  I would think that even 45's would be hard to find now.  Sounds like a good way to spend the day with the family.

Adam- Come visit us.  It's just a short swim, across the sound ;-) 

I still have a collection of 45's. Some of them are scratched or cracked, beyond repair.  My older son used to complain that he knew the words to all the "oldies", because those were the only radio stations, I would tune to, in the car.  I also have 33 1/3 albums and even some 78"s.

Marilyn, I came over a little late to buy a book or a tomato but I hope both events in Westport went well this weekend. Your post looks great with the photos and the layout. Keep that camera handy or clip art if that is the fit and keep blogging. YOU are doing GREAT!! : )

Gary- Thanks for the visit. 

I had a lot of clipart, on my earlier blogs, but with all the copyright issues, I removed them.  It was a shame because some of them were really neat and their removal resulted in those blogs looking a lot less interesting.  I now try to take pictures to go with my blogs.

Marilyn.. This is a great post..I hope it is very successful.  Saturday I was close by (sort of) in Danbury, CT.  I had a high school reunion there.  Don't ask how many years...

Valerie - Your secret's safe, with me.  I looked it up and I was out of college before you even entered HS.  ;-)
