I know, teacher!

It could be a Graphophone, a Graphonola, or a gramophone, but not a "gramaphone."

[Anonymous Tipster is at least getting warm. Maybe he meant Gramma Phone. - Dave]


Dave--too many fingers. I meant gramaphone of course.

Yeah, but...

Just think of all the tiks and snaks. I'll sta hom thanx. (So it was these campers who invented the annoying slacker typing style used so heavily today!)


I guess this means we can add txt spk to the list of things our ancestors discovered long before we did...
It does look like a relaxing getaway, though.

Ezy Come, Ezy Go

What an inviting scene, just perfect for the dog days of summer. The porch swing is the crowning touch. I want to go to Camp Tak It Ezy and kik bak!

Music Camp

Presumably the titanafram is in its own tent out of frame.

The good life

WOW these folks know how to camp. Beds in the tent, a garapahone for music, rocking chair, hammock... Bet they ate well too.

[True. Can't remember the last time I saw a garaphone at a campsite. - Dave]
