Have a good night, everyone!

Good Monday morning, my Christmas friends!

It's a beautiful day here in Bellville today. Sunny with a high of 78...nice! I was hoping the pine pollen was almost gone, but I was up half the night sneezing. I already take a handful of pills everyday, so I don't want to mix in another pill for allergies. Maybe the pollen will be gone soon.

School's out for Spring break this week, but Nancy is an accountant and April 15 isn't here yet, so we have no plans for a trip to my beloved mountains. We're taking Jacob and his best buddy out to see Jurassic Park at the Imax theater this evening. That should be fun (it better be for $17 per ticket!).

I hope to work more on the Camaro Tuesday evening, and maybe some bass fishing on Wednesday.

I still have a somber feeling, but I'm grateful for the blessing in my life, and grateful for all of you...my good friends.

I hope y'all have a great day!

Aye RIGHT 75 your lucky things think it about 7c here .

good a.m. y'all!!!!

I hope the morning finds y'all all feeling good, content, & happy!

tomorrow is my baby boy's 21st birthday!!! Wow, can't believe it. I cooked his birthday dinner last night. fried cube steak, gravy, mashed potatoes, crock pot mac & cheese, biscuits, & green beans. it was his request. sounds more like a heartattack, doesn't it? Seth tries to fit in all his favorites @ 1x, lol. way too many carbs & fat but it's what he wanted. I will be making his birthday cake today. Strawberry is his favorite. I hope the berries are pretty & sweet, that makes a huge difference!
baby girl is headed back to school today. she had her spring break last week. No fuss from her getting up this morning, SHOCKER!

Will is going to the city police station today for his interview w/ the 4 captains. He's very nervous/anxious.He went & bought some new dress slacks yesterday for it. His sportcoat is too small. I was hoping he would be able to wear it & look "professional" but, NOT! aahh, it's ok, I think he will look nice in what he has picked out.
I had trouble getting to sleep last night. who knows what today has in store for me now....possibly a nap later, lol.
I hope everyone has a super-dooper day! Love & hugs all around!
HAPPY 21ST TO YOUR BOY. for tomorrow and GOODLUCK to will for today [/QUOTE]

Thanks Shelliegirl!

All over the place. I have LPs and cassettes going back to the 70s; downloads; commercially produced sets; CDs of MP3s from other collectors. Mr. recently found someone on eBay selling a Radio Spirits set of wartime Fibber and Molly shows for $1, and jumped on it. The audio quality is superb.

You can find hundreds of shows free for streaming or downloading on Archive.org and other websites, but the quality varies wildly. For some reason people have the bad habit of "improving" shows by filtering them, but they wind up overdoing it and producing a tinny, over-digitized sound. Learn to live with a little background hash, people. It's more authentic, anyway.

Good morning folks and happy Monday. It is a happy Monday for me to get me out of the backyard! I hacked Forsythia with a chainsaw for most of yesterday and it still looks like a weed that was left to take over for the last fifty years...that stuff is HEARTY!!!

I'm quite heartened by the countdown...Crown, you make me smile whenever I see your name!

All the best guys!

Jay
