Okay, so in the beginning your post was sounding like Goodnight Moon in my head and I LOVE that.

I also love LOVE your pics. Kudos to you for thinking ahead and taking all those goodbye shots! :)

YOu have a 28 year old clock radio that still works? Wow, I thought my 15 year old alarm was pretty awesome! Change is good, and the mac will become your best friend ever!

Looks like you got some spiffy, shiny stuff last year.

What a fun post. I hope you enjoy your new Mac. They are a thing of beauty. :)

Awesome longevity of the clock radio - I held onto mine for 15 years and it had been sat on! (yes sat on... a short but amusing story) It finally died and I was required to buy another one - I returned 3 before finally coming to a compromise of happiness. Still not a huge fan. Siigh
