I loved those downtown department stores, too, DR ChasSmith.  In Detroit, where I grew up, it was J. L. Hudson, a beautiful store that was imploded in 1998  :'(

And DR JRand probably remembers the downtown Indianapolis L. S. Ayres store where my grandmother worked as a "marker" of high-end costume jewelry.  They'd lock her in a cage where she wrote the price of each piece in blue ballpoint on a small white tag.  She loved to have us visit and have lunch in the Ayres Tea Room.

The duet is arranged, scanned and sent to its various venues. I think I'll have a bit of lunch now.

I'm up, I'm up.  Barely eight hours, but that's at least better than six.  I would have probably slept another hour but the neighbor was outside with a friend, jabbering away loudly.  Then they went in his house - so it was very sweet of them to awaken me and then go do something else.

I compiled a blog of some of my YouTubes from 2009-11 (with some wonderful collaborators) that I thought were fun on topics that seemed hot on the chat boards in those years.  THE YOUTUBE LINKS ARE AT MY BLOGSPOT AT

Of course I remember L.S. Ayres, and Wasson's, and Block's - all the big downtown stores.  We would go there now and then....

DR GINNY the Tea Room has been replicated at the Indiana Museum right down to the silverware and waitresses' uniforms...you can still have lunch or tea.....

It was a huge treat getting to have lunch with the ladies at one of the tea rooms in Louisville, including L.S. Ayers at the Mall. I always had chicken salad on white toast. The Norstrom's here has a pretty good restaurant. The place at Nieman Marcus not so good.

I'm here after a long weekend.  Show is fine, sounds fine, people can hear fine.  It's was just fine.

I, personally, am not fine.  Think I'm fighting a cold and have a headache this morning.  Which I'm sure is from the Makers Mark over ice I had before bed.  It was a good thought at the time...

Would love to see the revival of "Einstein on the Beach." Glass can get bloated and repetitious at times, but I love this particular piece.

Now, if you had had that Maker's Mark with tea, honey and lemon, you'd be on the road to recovery. That was mother's medicine when I was growing up.

TOD:

My first record player as a child was some plastic player that only played children's records and 45s...it was pink and blue.


I don't recall the brand, but  when I became a teenager I got a hi-fi record player one Christmas that could be carried like a suitcase (albeit square).  It was blue.  The stylus flipped so that one side  of it was for 33 1/3 r.p.m. records and the other side was for 78 r.p.m. records.

Well, Ron Pullium, I happen to like New York.

I like the city air, I like to drink of of it.

The more I know New York, the more I think of it.

I like the site, the sound and even the stink of it.

I was sure the Man from Philadelphia would be here by now. It 2:40 and this meeting is in 20 minutes.

The one drawback is that the rooms above ours is getting a lot of construction. They were noisy all weekend with pounding and thudding. I thought it would be over today. No such luck.

DR JOHN G I finally watched UNITED 93 earlier this year - it was hard to watch, but I am glad I did.

I bought it used for $1 back in April when a local Blockbuster was going out of business...I haven't watched it yet.

TOD:

My first record player was one of this children's portables. It was white and it folded in half into a carrying case. LPs were larger than the case, so they hung over the edge when you played them. There was no long spindle in the middle, so you couldn't play a stack of 45s. Still, it had enough volume and a decent enough sound that you could enjoy it.

My first transistor was a cheapie giveaway at some department store opening. It had one of those one-ear earphones, and I played it forever. The big station in Louisville on the AM dial back then was WAKY and it drove my parents wacky when my sisters and I played it.

I did make a transistor radio for Cub Scouts. It was little more than soldering a few parts together and following the instructions. I didn't understand what any of it meant, and the kit was not helpful in that regard. But the radio worked. And that was way cool back then.

When I was a kid, I took apart a couple of radios...but wasn't able to put them back together. ::)

I took apart stuff, too. Then I let the parts sit there, like so much fish, as someone might sa

Thanks, George. I could watch that clip from "Ballroom" just about any time. I also loved the clip from the Gary Moore show of her singing with Dorothy Collins and Eileen Ferrell.
