The Victrola Arrived – Birthday Gift for Thomas

November 16 2020

Thomas’s turntable arrived today. He chose to use birthday money from my dad to get this. Thomas told me I could pick out the style, and he chose the color. What fun that was! It’s also an FM radio. 🖤🎶 🎼 🎵🖤

The one problem with being a minimalist, having gotten rid of many possessions …. I got rid of all my albums, except for one lone 45, “Hang on Sloopy” by The McCoys. 🤣😂🤣 Now I must go dig it out of the closet so Thomas can give it a whirl.

We had an intimate, masked, socially distanced celebration with The Romano Duo and Robert, graced with absolutely divine vegan cupcakes from Batch Cupcakery. I took my selfie after everyone left! Ha!
Thomas received some great gifts!

A basketball, volleyball (so we can use the great courts here), a shirt, a hoodie, a desk chair, a homemade card from Lillian, a turntable, an album, and a photo book of our date days over the past year. I still need to make a homemade card or poem for him.
