Rock N Roll Never Dies

To minimize expenses we decided to mail the essentials from Hawaii to Florida -- the cheapest solution we could come up with. This also meant parting with things that we have held onto. Things like my cassette tape collection, along with my vinyl record collection. I'm guessing that I probably had about 300+ cassette tapes, mostly 60-70's rock and around 100 or so vinyl LP's, many bootlegs and a lot of great cover art.
I called our local radio station and told my friend DC, the morning jock, that I'd like to donate them to a listener who would appreciate them and give them a good home. He put it on the air, said that the first caller would get the cassettes and within minutes, a listener named "Spike" was over joyed to get them!
The following day DC gave away my vinyl collection and I'm glad they will have a home where they will be listened to.
You gave up your treasure in order to make someone happy.Thats good.Keep the flame burning in Florida.
The real gift here is giving up a home and a life you know and love to go tend for a loved one,,,God Bless
My Mom got cancer I live in Myrtle Beach SC and I had to leave my husband and daughter and move to CT.
I lost my Mom 3yrs ago, but they where the best time of my life I got to know my Mom as a person see how her friends loved her the stories I heard that time I missed blessed my heart. You will have some hard times but think on the bright side look at her face listen to her and feel her love of life.
