Remem­ber when the movie Grem­lins came out? Remem­ber when you got these with your kid’s meal from Hardee’s for an extra $0.89 or $0.99?  It was the only and last time I remem­ber beg­ging to go to a Hardee’s.

I found some of my col­lec­tion in a bin I have had in the base­ment.  I hadn’t opened the bin in years. As in, we have moved sev­eral times with a cou­ple bins from my child­hood unopened.

Lan­guish­ing in our base­ment. Wait­ing to be reclaimed.

When I picked them up, with the smell of faded pages and dust hit­ting me ‚I was brought back to the days as a kid. When my brother & I would fight over who got to look at it first.

Back when we would put them on a small lit­tle record player, lis­ten­ing along while we flipped through book.  My daugh­ter asked me what the album was when I showed her.  She thought it was a big CD.  She had no idea albums came in dif­fer­ent sizes.  She had no idea peo­ple of our gen­er­a­tion even used albums, she didn’t know that Daddy & I are THAT old.

That’s OK. I will embrace it. Along with my faded memories.

Oh and the record albums! LOL! I work in a music library and we are at a point now where the college students we hire to work in the library and unfamiliar with LPs and we have to explain hwo they work and how you put them on the turn table. It makes me feel old!
