Who needs an iPOD?

I was warning my class that they had to look after their own property. I informed them that the school would not be responsible if they lost their mobile phone, iPOD, Walkman, Nintendo and so on. There were a few blank stares and one boy asked, “Sir, what’s a walkman?”

I think I need to listen to a few relaxing LPs

Glad to see you've upgraded your old 78's at last ;-)

I try to keep up with the times so I'm going to swap my crystal set for one of these new-fangled wireless radio receivers.

Bad idea. They don't hold as much wine.

When I was a kid, my dad's friend pulled into the driveway in his 1957 Chevy convertible, with the radio blaring.

I said, "Dad, I didn't know they had radios in cars back then."

Someday, kids will say, "What's a CD?"

Unfortunately, Shae, the older I get the more these sort of things happen to me!
