Oh gosh Mum
I know you told me not to go
Up into the attic
Where it’s dusty and glum

Look at these
Treasures I found tucked away
Grandma’s ancient player
And prehistoric black CDs

  11. Reading liner notes for secret messages on old LPs was always a joy. Or, at least I thought they were secret.

    And yours is a joy.

  13. Thank you so much everyone. It was inspired by a remark I heard when someone said in all seriousness that they didn't know that CDs used to be so big! I kid you not!


    Apologies for not being able to get to everyone's page. I will try to be better at it this coming week.
