My apologies for not blogging the last couple of days. Originally, we were supposed to be on the road, but weather intervened. As I’ve repeatedly said to those who ask, I’m willing to drive to snow, but not through snow (which clearly shows my wussy West Coast roots). Being home, of course, this turned into a home maintenance time. My husband and I cleaned out closets, built a simple pantry (yes!), and ran errands.
One of those errands included buying one of those turntables that connects to the computer so that you can bring your vinyl collection into the modern era. I have a bunch of loopy and irreplaceable records from the 1950s (my Dad’s), the 1960s (mine and my Dad’s), and the 1970s and early 1980s. I’ve really missed listening to them, and was thrilled when Costco began to sell a USB turntable.
The turntable is serviceable but we discovered, after a lot of agonizing time at the computer, that the software included is awful. Mr. Bookworm went on the internet and we found a much better software called Spin It Again (and you can save $10 by downloading it, instead of ordering the boxed version).
All of this sucked up so much computer time that I haven’t had the chance to do any blogging at all. Indeed, I haven’t even read anything and feel woefully out of touch. I will try to remedy that situation in the next couple of days, all the while with silly songs of my youth playing in the background.
