Conversation at our house tonight

iPod blaring through speakers in family room….

Me:  ‘Girls, can you turn that down please?? 

Turned down (a fraction)….

Me:  ‘Sorry I sound like my mother’

Daughter No. 1: ‘What do you mean?’

Me: ‘Grandma used to say that to us….’

Daughter No. 3 (the cheeky 8 year old one): ‘But what did you have to turn down back then?????’

Well, you know we had those old grammaphones that you could wind up…..

    Oh, yes…. “back in the olden days”…. as my darling likes to refer to my youth. (I think I remember saying the same thing to my mother, too!)

    My terences have just recently forced me to the conclusion that I too grew up ‘in the olden days’. Sigh, my life is all downhill from here.

    Hi Jan, if that makes you feel old imagine how we feel. i remember putting my Elvis RECORD on full volume only to hear JOAN SUTHERLAND (whom in those days I couldn’t stand) singing at top volume instead of Elvis as Pa had kindly swaped her with my Elvis record. Those were the good old days to. Have a great birthday Saturday and a great trip. Love Aunt xx

    My 7 year old found a cassette tape of Duran Duran (I just can’t get of it….) and asked me what it was. I told him it was what we used to listen to before CD and ipods. He laughed and said “Yeah right Mum… very funny”. I couldn’t convince him……

    Too funny. I love that you apologised for being like your Mum. That’s so sweet.
