Opie is a cat that enjoys music. She especially likes when I put a platter on the old record player purchased in 1974. I have an older and larger console model from the 60’s which works perfectly well, but you see I now use it as a TV stand.
I had to protect the cloth over the speakers to prevent the cats from scratching them. My eyesight is poor so I must sit very close to see properly. Opie is waiting for me in my chair. She likes to sit in my lap and watch or sleep. I have several boxes full of records. I do sit and play them now and then. The most used ones are the Christmas albums, which are played in December.
Vintage Christmas Cards
My father kept all the holiday cards he received until 1930. Here are a few. They are all postcards and not folding cards. Some I can exactly date and others I cannot.They are mostly from the 1920’s. Cards do not show any publishers or origin.
What wonderful old cards–thanks for sharing them. I love that Opie enjoys music. My parents had a dog that loved when I played piano. He would sit under the bench while I played–thanks for bringing back that memory.
Quite a few cards left for next year and the next as well I reckon. We do forget things that come back when we see something forgotten but familiar.
A really nice collection of cards, very special they are a treasure.
Gismo loves music too, especially classical music, but he leaves the paw from the record player and the speakers

Opie and the record player were shown last Christmas on the old blog. A couple cards were shown in 2013 there as well.
What a nice collection of cards. Our cats have destroyed our speakers.
That is why I have put on protective speaker covers to prevent that!
These are wonderful. Thanks for sharing!
The reverse of who wrote and what is interesting to me. relatives and others long gone.

Christmas music is good for the soul.
Greg they are amazing…I could look at them over and over again.🐱
I should scan the whole collection both sides of the cards. It would take me a while as there are a lot.
