My grandparents-in-law offered me their vinyl collection this morning. I had mentioned to them at dinner two nights ago that Brooke had given a new record player to me for my birthday that also comes with a USB output to convert all my vinyl to mp3 files. Well, they remembered that information and informed me that all their old vinyl records were in storage at Brooke's parents house. So after all the present unwrapping was over, I searched for and found the records. Four boxes full of them! Al Jolson, Cole Porter, Judy Garland, Frank Sinatra, George and Ira Gershwin, Ella Fitzgerald, Pete Seeger, Joan Baez, a ton of classical music, and too many others for me to remember! I estimate that there are probably 75-80 records total. There's no way I would ever risk shipping them to New York or taking them on an airplane. So they'll have to wait until I'm down here in Florida with an automobile. The point, however, is that they are here and available whenever I'm able to claim them. I've never been offered such a large collection of someone else's making before. I'm very humbled, honored, and thankful even to have the opportunity to appreciate it. Nevertheless, if I'm fortunate to claim them in earnest one day, I will give them the respect and appreciation they deserve. Thanks Gerry and Alan! Thank you so much!
