New Year's Eve

We spent a quiet new year's eve, sipping prosecco and listening to the tape we made years ago in Arkansas, when we recorded a couple of dozen 1920s and 30s records played on an old crank record player. Singers include Vernon Dalhart, John McCormick, and Marlene Dietrich. It has become something of a new year's eve tradition for us to play it. We talked to owlfish, already in the future. I watched fireworks from around the world on the BBC website and drew to help myself stay awake until midnight. On the table are some gifts from our friends, the Leonardos. Peggy made and gave to us the sculpted copper flowers in the vase years ago, but this Christmas, among other things they gave us a Walton Ford calendar! I haven't done more drawings recently because I am writing for an exhibition.

Any chance of digitizing and sharing said tape recording? I'd love to hear that collection! :)

I am not sure how to go from tape cassette to digital recording, but I will ask our tech guy at work how to do that. I'll let you know.
