    And we all ate what was served. No moaning and groaning.

    Even if we wanted to some of us couldn't, because of The Covid-19 Virus. Some of us are on the wrong continent, and can't get back until there is a vaccine, and/or the virus is contained quite strongly.

    We HAD to eat all we were served, because there were people who were starving in other places across The World, and/or, because some of us had to eat grass and dig up tulip bulbs and eat them, when The German Army took almost all the food out of the country in late fall of 1944.

    Ralph and I have not dined with other family members since the original shutdown last March and they all live nearby. We agreed not to accept Thanksgiving invitations this year either. So sad, but we are willing to make sacrifices to stay alive.

    I breathed a sigh of relief when I asked my mom what the holiday plans were because she told me that this year, we couldn't have our traditional family dinners. Some of the youngsters might be unhappy but I wear a mask continually when I visit and don't want to risk my parents' health. With that being said, my brother and sister-in-law are flying out from Vegas for some reason and I hope they're not trying to convince the folks to have a get-together.

    Amen. Even as there are a bunch of selfish oafs who refuse to take necessary steps to get this thing in control. It doesn't matter if one state does everything right because there are always people who push against the common good because of "individual liberty". I live in Ohio, where we tried to keep it in check but border Indiana and West Virginia, where they aren't. It's like smoking, you can't have a non-smoking section in the same room, right next to a hookah bar.

    We are the at-risk elders now and don't trust our family members to
    honor all the recommended (by the scientists) safe measures . I have only
    seen my brother once all summer and that was outside with masks on.
    Now they are fixing to drive from Michigan down to Florida for the winter -- fools.
    I am somewhat relieved that my parents never had to live through these times. They
    never made it to experience America's World Trade Center, et al, attack, either.

    Jerry, we are your Michigan neighbors, and we are surrounded by the spiking states.
    We aren't allowed into Canada, either.

    This is a very relatable thread. Thanks for perpetuating it. It is fun to go back and read previous pages. How many of you remember the song "Remember When" by the Platters in 1955? I know this is not "Word Association," but I associate.

    That makes me remember when I discovered my dad's records in earnest. I had already built up my own collection (kind of) in the late '70s and '80s but I started throwing his anthologies on my turntable and just like that, my buds and I were making mix tapes with the best of the '50s and '60s to drive around to. We were so weird. We'd pop out a tape with Keith Sweat, Parliament and Lakeside on it and trade it out for one with Little Richard, Sam Cooke and the Temptaions without missing a beat.

    I used to love making mix tapes. I had a cassette player in my car until it wore out sometime around 2008.

    Little Richard, Sam Cooke and the Temptations? Your dad was pretty cool, Jerry.

    You guys are awfully young! My Dad had records by Duke Ellington, Count Basie, T-Bone Walker, Wynonie Harris, Joe and Jimmy Liggins, Champion Jack DuPree, The Ink Spots, The King Cole Trio, Benny Goodman, Glen Miller, Tex Beneke, from the 1930s and '40s, even a few from the 1920s.

    Robb, Jerry's dad must have been a contemporary of mine. That is my music of the
    Fifties and Sixties -- when music was music. Rock and Roll, Doo-wop, etc., etc.

    However, I love your dad's taste in music. Yes.

    He was a contemporary of mine, too.

    Dad's record stash has a lot more than that. He's got stuff from the Ink Spots and the Mills Brothers. Pops is a huge Dominoes fan and proud to remind me that one of his first cousins was a member of the Five Keys. He started buying albums in the '60s but he had 45s from way into the '50s. Even a couple of 78s. One of the things that I would fix if I had a time machine would be how the 45s were maintained. We had hundreds of them and now the few that remain are broken and scratched beyond use.

    Do you mean 45's like these? Framed on our wall. Shameless.

    Love it, Nina. I have a strange infactuation with 45 record labels; they bring back fond memories. My favorites are Motown, Tamla, Stax and Decca. Mostly because that's where most of my childhood's favorite music came from.

    I love this for the memories it dusts off:

    Sorry, Homeboy. But for as much as I loved making cassettes, it took two and a half hours to make a 90 minute tape. Now? I can put 130 songs an mp3 CD that I can put in my car's stereo and drive from Ohio to Virginia and back without hearing the same song twice. And that will only take 45 minutes to collect the music, organize it and burn it to the CD.

    If I don't want to use the mp3 CD, I can plug in an mp3 player to the stereo and have 10,000 songs from which to select. The only real thing that I miss from that age is the fidelity of wax as opposed to digital.

    Haaaaa,hey jerry remember the old muffler commercial where the old dude said..i'd never trade annabelle...that's me with my cassettes,hehehehehehe!!
