so i'm sorting through all my cooooool oldies records that i've collected since i bought the retro hi-fi (click the link if you really wanna read about it) and accidentally dropped a couple of the LPs.
one of the records slipped out of its sleeve and rolled to a stop at my feet. drats! i have to stoop down and pick it up. in doing so, i let out a SHRIEK befitting a late-night horror flick.
no, it wasn't because i hurt my back ... it was because i was shocked, appalled, disgusted and yes, downright frightened by what i saw on the record.
jim reeves. heh heh.
no, seriously, it was a jim reeves christmas album. but something very creepy was plastered to the vinyl. my spidey senses were tingling, but i immediately deduced that whatever it was, it. was. dead.
thank the lord.
i gently picked up the record and brought it as close as i dared, to get a better looksee at the little critter. i recognized its skeletal form (being a nurse, i should know these things, right?!) as a gecko. yep. it used to be a gecko and somehow had found a home in the comfort of the cold, vinyl LP of jim reeves.
by the looks of things, he died of shock. he seemed otherwise healthy and intact. what can i say? or maybe he just starved to death. i'm not really up to investigating this case any further because after all, it wouldn't bring him back, right? (insert laugh track here for those of you not recognizing my humor).
naturally i took pics. in fact, after my initial shock, my first thought was to share this pleasurable experience with all y'all. because, well, that's just the kinda gal i am.
the other pics are of some recent treasure finds at an estate sale that was so far out in the boonies that i almost turned around (i was sans FAGs or any other company). but i stayed the course, kept my chin up (and my head down) and ended up finding a few good pieces.
hope y'all enjoy ... and have a wonderful weekend. i'm gonna spend mine crafting up a cute lil christmas outfit for my new pet (whaa?! you think i wouldn't keep him?!). i call him mini me. nah, not really. maybe JR (for jim reeves?) or skelly (for skeleton??). okay, i'll work on the name too. :-)
love and hugs,
