Post Memories / Split from Brake Controller Question

Living in California has taught me to lock doors and remove everything, even stuff of no value, from a parked vehicle. Many years ago I parked at a trailhead, someone broke my truck window and took a baby bag (which contained diapers, bottles, but no money or credit cards) and some CDs from the '80s!

I still had an eight-track in the '80's.

I remember CD players coming out when I was in high school, back in the early 80's

I admit to being what they call a "late adopter" when it comes to "new" technology
Believe it or not, I carry a portable power pack in my trailer so I don't run the main battery down playing my...RECORD PLAYER!
Now if I could just figure out how to stop the needle from skipping while I'm going down the road....

....
stayin alive...alive...alive...

My 8 & 12 year olds are fascinated by these examples of "old" technology: floppy disks, cassette tapes, crank windows in cars, record players, punch cards, lots more things that's made me laugh :-)

OFF TOPIC DISCLAIMER:
As you can plainly see, Original Poster Thomas E's question has been answered to his satisfaction: see post # 15

WE MAY NOW RETURN TO OUR TRIP DOWN MEMORY LANE:

Me First!

True Story:
A few years ago I invited a 12-year old neighbor kid into the house to call his Mother and he was TOTALLY MYSTIFIED
by the (still operational) dial telephone you see in the picture.
I had to "teach" him how to use it!

How about some 45's or 78's?

OOOOOH!
And Avocado Green, too!
Love it! Is it still in use?
I really like the leisurely way a rotary phone dials, and I especially like the real "ring".
It seems strange to me that these phones still work in the system, though.
Maybe that's evidence of the perfection of the original technology!
