New 8 Track Players!

About a month ago, I acquired two very groovy 8track players on Craigslist. Sadly, my dog passed away shortly after that and I've been a bit depressed since then, so I haven't been posting much, but I'm feeling a bit better each day and can now talk about him without bursting into tears. Anyway, here are my recent fabulous finds!

Realistic blue boombox.  I just love the mod design of this portable player!
I've acquired another Panasonic TNT Dynamite player.  I already have one in blue now all I need to do is find one in yellow, white and the ever elusive smoked clear version.  

I'm dedicating this post to my bestest buddy who recently passed away.  He was almost 16 years old!  Sadly, he had a tumor on his spinal cord which caused paralysis (which I could have dealt with), but the fact that there was blood in his urine had the Vet concerned that he did not have long to live.  I had to make the difficult decision to put him down.  It broke my heart to do this, but I think it was for the best.  He was miserable, and had given up even trying to walk.  Late at night when I'm drifting off to sleep, I still think I can hear him breathing and moving around at the foot of my bed.  I miss you little guy!
 Aspen was about 11 years old in this photo.  He's begging to come inside.  He only enjoyed being outside, if you were out there with him.  He always had to be near me and hated if I was behind closed doors.

This was our last trip to Cape May, NJ.  He was just a little shy of 15 when this photo was taken.  He was having some issues with arthritis in his back legs and had started peeing in the house.  He had such spunk and spirit though.  Look at that happy face!

This is another photo of Aspen on one of our many vacations in Cape May.  This was taken when he was around 13.  He loved coming down here as much as me!
