A Blast From the Past

I have started some spring cleaning and have discovered that we have accumulated a ton of clutter this past year! Ever since Christmas, my sewing room has become the "dump everything in here" room to the point that I could no longer sew! I have spent hours in there and it is better, but I have hours of work left. I also cleaned out my closet. This is what we have bagged up so far to be donated to charity:

Yes, that is nine bags of miscellaneous stuff, a tv, a Christmas tree, and a car seat. And I'm not done yet!!

In all the cleaning out of closets, I came across these gems:

I remember when my Walkman cassette player was the stuff! And look, the newer one on the left even has FM/AM radio! Score! We have a birthday party to go to tomorrow evening for a friend who is turning 40. The invitation says to bring a gag gift - no problem! Walkman cassette player, anyone?

i was right, del thought that was hilarious. he said he had the exact same one as the black one. too funny. i'll be really interested to hear the reaction from the birthday party.

LOL! I remember saving up all of my paper route money to buy a Walkman and feeling so very cool once that exciting bit of "new" technology was in my hands. :P

Ha, ha, Amy! I saved up for both of these with babysitting money! I was in 7th grade when I got the black one and 9th grade when I got the grey one. What I really want to know is why, oh why do I still have them?? I have apparently moved them from TX to OH, back to TX, and once again from one city to another in TX. How are they just now catching my attention??
