I'm getting old

I said to one of my kids "I must tape that tonight!"

I've got an old VCR in the loft. I may have to get it out and show them one day.

My father-in-law said to my son the other day "turn the wireless on please" he was very confused, thought he meant his bluetooth ear buds [Big grin.png]

Yeah, I used to play shellac 78's on my Gramophone as a boy. They were also called "needles" in those days, not styluses [Big grin.png]
