Gramophone glee

on October 16, 2012

I finally took delivery of the gramophone I bought for Anthony a while ago so yesterday I met my mother and sister-in-law at the nursing lodge and we cranked it up. Anthony was invisibly thrilled – ha – but it was definitely a success. It just fits into the cupboard in his room so that’s good because now, whenever I go in, I can bring it out and put it on.

    I am so thrilled Jules, it is so good it hopefully will give Ants lots of joy.
    Love always, Jen, David, Digby and Toby.

  3. I bet that he really is thrilled. What kind of music do the two of you like?

    I think the other residents and their carers out on the verandah nearby, enjoyed he strange distorted old music too, but Anthony kept closing the speaker doors, to keep the joy close to himself! Great moment. Meg xx

      It would be rather lovely to have a bit of a gramophone session for all of the residents. I didn’t realize he was closing the speaker doors to keep it to himself – interesting. Thanks Mother!

      A couple of years ago I bought Ants a big gramophone. It was a ripoff because the stupid spring was faulty but in the bottom cupboard of it there were masses of records – bonus!

    So happy that you found one … I suppose it’s not the Ebay one. Wonderful news – and it shows in Ant’s face what success it’s. Congratulation!

  17. The first thing I thought of when I read this was that my daughters wouldn’t have any idea what a gramophone is………………lol

    I was just thinking of record players yesterday. it brought back so many memories of replacing needles, skipping music and playing a song over and over and over and over. I still have my LPs.
