Adding to my previous post, as I try to get some sleep i hear my dad's tv with Grit/METV playing old westerns and war movies while he dozes in and out. It's been like that since as long as I can remember.
I'd get those digitized so you dont lose that memory.I have a cassette tape of dad reading stories to me when I was about 3. It was so old and fragile I had to put it in a new shell as the pressure pad was missing.
Once of the surprise treats was the whirr of mom's sewing machine. It was so funny, the instant I heard it I could smell machine oil and cotton thread.
