Okay? What Was I Thinking??

Earl told me the other day that this guy at work had a stereo that him and his wife hadn't used in about 5 years and wanted to know if we wanted it so Jace could listen to music. Earl said the guy said it was a really nice stereo. So sure, why not.

A few days later Earl brings home the stereo. He starts bringing in all these pieces and the speakers look nice...there about 3 1/2 feet tall and solid. Then the kids start asking questions. Mom do you have any of those old things that go around and play music? My response with a chuckle was, "Uh, no!" I thought it was kinda cool that it had a turn table though. Then I hear Earl telling the kids, "Oh, that's an 8 track player." I'm like, "An 8 track player??? Who has 8 tracks anymore and how is this stereo going to be any good to us????" Earl's reply is, "Well, it has a cassette player too!"

Oh, silly me.......and who has cassettes sitting around still? Oh, that's right....we do.

I ask Earl this morning if he was going to set the stereo up? He was like, "You want me to hook the dryer up (it's been sitting on the back porch for over a month now) and the stereo both this weekend?"

What was I thinking????

I'm gonna go get you some 8 tracks, just so you can listen to them in the stereo and give the kids a history lesson!! lol I see them at the Salvation Army all the time and wonder who still has the equipment to play them... lol

Sounds like you just acquired a collector piece :)...Good luck getting hubby to set both up. I'm lucky to get mine to do just one thing on the weekend.

Heck we had all of the above-not sure if Bri still has the 8 tracks, but they really deteriorate over time. Now if you hit a few yard sales in the summer-you'll find the things that go around-lol and cassettes too! I use to love my lps and cassettes.
