Growing up my Pa Pa "Grandfather" told me Mr Roger's was an true Anerican. Warm, friendly, compassionate and lived his Christian ideals. I've always wished I had half his class and ability to put others first.

In today's world it's a hard path to follow. I'm an XGen who loves sarcasm, and a bit of humor. Today I have little of that to give. Be kind to each other. Democracy is a fragile thing. Have empathy and listen to your fellow Americans pain.

We all want to defend ourselves more than learn. We all want to win more than ensure we ALL win. Change is happening and it's scary... but that is the most American thing I know of. Adapt, Change and pull together, for the sake of your fellow Americans of all Races, Creeds, Sexes, Religions, Classes and Styles.

"From many come one" Its on our money even. Black Lives Matter. Yes... I e heard some say all lives matter, but that's not the point. Let's stand up for our fellow Americans and listen to their issues. Our fellow Americans need us more than ever to stand together.

Any political comments will be erased.

Hi! Here's my 1959 Seeburg 220! It works, as I was able to find a guy that rebuilds the amps!
I collect these coffee caraffes, I have about 30 of them. I like kitchen items and ugly barware :-)
Just saw this Lola on one of my car groups.
Subscriber here. LOVE bossanovalife. During these work from home times. Can I make a couple of video suggestions I would love to see? You always have the best music on your videos. I'm sure you have quite a collection. Would love to see your thoughts on building a good Tiki music collection going beyond Martin Denny and Arthur Lyman. You seem to have found some really eclectic and interesting music. I really like Vol 1,2,3,4, but I want to here about your collection. How did you start? Where to find it? Maybe even how to keep your collection maintained, etc. Second, If someone is getting into Tiki and want their own home Tiki bar. Where to start? I love the Thrifting vids but where do you find your inspiration, what are other venues to find good tiki stuff. Decorating ideas for the beginner etc. Just some thoughts. Please take of your selves and just lay low, and shoot us some How to vids. Thanks From Minnesota
I know what it cost to pull a flat bed trailer in to sell parts for those era of cars and trucks !
Hello, it was so incredibly nice to meet you guys! Here is some beautiful pictures of you two!
New one for Christmas. Not really your theme, but a little. Merry Christmas, you two!
You should cover Medford area next year. We plan to show 2 1955 Powells at each show.
Your channel inspired me! Hope you like it.
It was nice to meet you guys at the Nashville Boogie pool party.
