WS also finds storing bread in the refrigerator as "wrong". However, since he is the one that eats most the bread, and at that, not very fast, the fridge is where it is stored to keep it from turning green too quickly.

Loved your story! So, you're clearly a ham. As for bread in the refrig., I keep mine in my freezer now that I'm alone and it takes me such a long time to eat a whole loaf. At least I don't have to worry about mold or waste.

Those were the days! I had Oscar Levant's recording of "Rhapsody In Blue" until my husband tore down the shed that contained a big steamer trunk that contained all of my 45's, 78's and LP albums. It was too heavy for him to move by himself, so he left it out in the weather.

I didn't have a record player at the time so didn't miss my records until we bought a console with radio, turntable and speakers inside. Then I hunted for my records. When I found them it almost caused a divorce. The trunk had been rained on, snowed on and had hot sun beating down on it. The album covers were stuck to the LP's, the 78's were warped and I was livid. I don't think I ever forgave him for that. (Maybe it's time.)

Bogie--Well...you know your father!

Joared--You knew there was a reason, didn't you?

Darlene--You may as well forgive. It's too late for anything else, I'd think. I'm sorry about what happened to all of your music, though. Too bad we don't live close enough that we can listen to Oscar Levant's "rhapsody in Blue", together. Wouldn't that be fun?!

You were a clever little lady with that amplifier...that's really something CC. I don't see that you've changed all that much either. I could no more come up with something like your Heathkit A-9C general purpose amplifier if my life depended on it. And though those songs you mentioned are a little before my time....I sure loved playing my old 45 records.....

P.S. I always keep my bread in the refrigerator these days...seems to last a lot longer that way.

Joy--Thanks for the kind words. I grew up working on stuff, my dad having been an electrician! We'll have to get together for a 45 rpm session.
