45 @ 70. The venerable 45 rpm record turned 70 this past weekend. While we haven’t gotten together as much as we have in the past, I certainly cherish our time together.

The 45 and I have been friends for 45 years. Our heydays were about 39 years ago and our close ties lasted almost a decade.

We are still friends, but I miss seeing the 45 as much as in the past. Happy Birthday, old friend!
