Been an extraordinarily long day. I’m weary. I feel old. And then I stumble across this:






I had an old boombox that loved to eat tapes. I found putting an eraser end on the back of the pencil helped the grippiness immensely.

So yeah, I get the connection.




Found by way of NewMexiKen and source is here.

      Sandy – I know! That just makes me sad. The local Borders here sold New Mexico Magazine too! No other store does. Sad.

      Alan – Washboard road, lol! That’s for sure! And at that part of the tape, there was always a prayer to the gods of electronics….”please don’t eat my tape…please don’t eat my tape….”
