Mother's Day and Clock Radios

My Grandma and Grandpa Butts always got me the best gifts at Christmas. If it was new, hot or top of the line they found it. One year when I was in middle school they gave me a Sony clock radio that played CDs. You could program several different wake up options or even pick the song on the CD that you wanted to wake up to. I LOVED it. I would decide which mood I wanted to be in the next morning and pick the song I wanted to hear first when I woke up. The clock radio sat on my bedside through high school, it went with me to Lubbock and I unpacked it in the first apartment Jeff and I shared as a married couple. The clock radio quit working a couple of weeks ago and I couldn't bring myself to buy a new one. I was surprised this morning when I opened my Mother's Day gift and inside was the MAC DADDY of all clock radios. It has all the features and instead of a CD player it now comes with an iPod dock. I will miss the old radio, it is the end of an era.


Out with the Old and in with the New
