V is the letter of the day.
V is for Victrola
When I was Very young we had a wind-up Victrola that lived downstairs next to my father's crystal radio.
When I was a little older we acquired a real radio, but we still went downstairs to wind up the Victrola, put on some old records and dance a bit. The old Victrola was quite magical......
Now people read on Kindles, do amazing things with telephones, write blogs that the whole world can read, if they are so inclined, and I think how my mother would shake her head and say, 'My word, what next'!
For more V stories visit here at ABC Wednesday, with thanks to Mrs. Nesbitt and her Very Versatile aides.
