Webster’s Dictionary defines Immature as; not mature, not completely developed, not finished or perfect. It defines senior as; older, of higher rank or service. We like to think of ourselves as not finished and of higher rank! Many of us are projects still in the works, and we have been at it for a long time! We feel young at heart and thus consider ourselves Immature Seniors.

During the last four months we have been downsizing…again. This time it involved our large records collection, some 1,800 records. Now we did the best research we could, checking out on line record stores, and a few live ones too. Once we had an idea of what some of the more desirable and rare ones were worth, we approached a vintage record store in Vancouver. The buy value on our records was just shy of nine grand. We were asking twenty five percent of that. The store, thought the asking price fair, but wanted a list. So…two weeks later I had complied one. It takes me that long due to my disability. Once done I sent the list off. In took less than a day to get the unexpected news, they didn’t want the records, not even the Elvis ones! I knew many of what we had would be of interest, for the records were in their store, many in worse condition that ours. So it puzzles me as to why they refused. Not to be discouraged we went to Kelowna and offered the same lot to another store. The list did not impress them, even if our values were found on the web site for that very store. They made no offer. Now, it must be made clear that we had taken these records from the shelves, and boxed them up. It was quite a job, done over three weeks. Now, what to do with them all? So we listed them on Craig’s list and Kijjiji…nothing. Last week I removed the more rare and valuable ones. It took us the week to put them back on the shelves. The rest, some 20 smaller boxes are going to a local auction. We will be lucky to make two hundred bucks for the lot! So then what’s with this value thing anyways? We watch lots of shows on the TV about auctions, antiques and the like. They always give values, often based on inter net listings. I can’t help but wonder how accurate those valuations are, considering we went to our local thrift stores the other day, both of them, and tried to give the records away… no one wanted them!
