This 3-record compilation of 50's and 60's rock'n'roll from 1975 is one of the earliest records I remember listening to as a kid. I found a copy of it, and man it's such a feeling.
There are two versions with slightly different songs, but I remember it so well I can identify which my mom had. My mom was 27 when this was released... I was 7. I had never realized she bought this after I was born.

It's all finally come together. My brother's Christmas gift arrived at the same time as my turntable... this was a defining record of my highschool years.

My first thrown pot in over three years. 1.5 pounds. I expected to have to learn to center again, but it just happened. Overall, my hand remembered what to do, I was just fuzzy on the specifics of things I kept changing up... sponge placement, knuckle lift, finger lift, etc Nice to be throwing again.

Garage much more organized, kilns are uncrated and most importantly, my wheel area is accessible and ready to throw pots this afternoon. Right after I recover.

Goya plantain chips are really good. Very light salt (no-salt is an option), taste and mouth-feel is a lot like a medium-thickness potato chip. Very crispy, not greasy like thin chips.

We thought this table was for sewing, but Ramses says otherwise.

Knitting dish cloths for my mom's 70th birthday, to go with her sunflower-themed kitchen. Also, a warm-up for more complicated knitting since I've been out of practice for quite awhile.

This bucket is my life now, so long as the rain keeps up. I briefly considered sleeping in the attic to be closer.
