Remember these? This was my first record player. Perhaps I’ll try to find a needle for it and play some of my old records.
I cleaned a couple cupboards and my childhood desk drawer when visiting my parents. No, the house hasn’t sold; it’s not even on the market yet. They’re trying to figure out where they’d move to. They really want to stay put.
Here’s the contents of the drawer: A slide rule, a cotton handkerchief, an unused typewriter ribbon, three metal shoe horns, a bag of pennies, a dime, about six boxes of slides- I think from my college years; a kilt pin, a black marker, some index cards, a roll of scotch tape, a tampon, and a Peace Now button. Perhaps not artifacts that elate archeologists, but relics nevertheless.
