Just Getting Better With Time



This is Kenny.
Kenny is a Kenwood Model Eleven II receiver.  I found Kenny when we moved into this house a few years ago.  He was stuffed behind a furnace among mouse droppings, three arrows and a wooden christmas tree.
I was very excited to see Kenny.  You see, I love vintage things.  I mean I LOVE old radios and speakers.  I knew he wouldn't work.  I knew he was heavy.  Still...I couldn't help but immediately bond with this kindred spirit.  You see, us creatures from the 70's need to stick together.  With a little TLC we might just prove we get better with time.  
I like to think about Kenny's life.  I mean he probably started out as a shiny newborn looking out at the world from his wonderful view on a shelf...maybe Montgomery Wards or Sears perhaps.  It doesn't really matter, he had his whole life ahead of him.  He was going to work hard and bring a lot of smiles to the world.
