I dropped by the post office last Thursday to pick up a few stamps. I'm in line for 20 minutes, which for some would be a long time. It was worth it as I was entertained by a man who's seen more than 7 decades of life.
I love typing on an old typewriter. There's something about the movement of the keys. It's the difference between playing the piano on a stringed instrument and an electronic keyboard. Just not the same. I prefer the strings and I thought I preferred the ribbon to the bytes. But then I saw this
I remember when I went to college, I had had a job since I was in the 8th grade at the Salmon River Inn. I started out bussing tables, then I got the waitress job. I worked 3 nights a week until 9. I would get out of school at 3 and go to my job. I was 16. I did that for two years. I also worked part time at the local radio station.
News this morning: From the Wall Street Journal ......They say people are afraid to order menu items they can't pronounce. For example they say Olive Garden finally added the description of gnocchi to thier menu and the sale of the traditional Italian dumplings too off. Turns out Tracy always thought gnocchi was that little wooden guy that wanted to be a real boy, really listen here.
Congratulations to Heidi Hankins she joined MENSA, the high IQ group. MENSA members are in the top 2 percent of human intelligence. Heidi has an IQ of 159......she's also 4 YEARS OLD. With that news comes an idea from Tracy.
Spring is definitely in the air......The Capital City market opens Saturday and the Race to Robie Creek, also Saturday. Tracy's looking forward to planting tomatoes. He's watching Pickle Butte for the snow to melt. While the rest of us are watching Schafer Butte. Okay, since we corrected him he claims now his favorite thing about spring is when Pickle Butte starts smelling, that when he can wear shorts. Yea, we call him the Farmer's Almanac of Canyon County.
"I got nothin' " it's a phrase Tracy and I use when we zing each other and the other one has no comic response. I've noticed lately too that if I throw a zinger at Tracy while he's got his nose buried in his smart phone it goes without a witty reaction. I get points if Carl's in the room and he hears it. No points if Carl's out of the studio. So question is if Margo makes a wisecrack and Tracy's on his smart phone and doesn't hear it, does the tree still fall in the woods?
We're playing the name game: K-Hits $10,000 name game, Tracy had this article on the show this morning: TRENDY BABY NAMES And I recently discovered I was decieved in 4th grade about Idaho and what the name means.
Did you hear about this.....California regulators have found some nail polishes used and sold in salons that are advertised as free of a so-called ``toxic trio'' of chemicals have high levels of agents known to cause birth defects. I think about all the things I use on my body which all goes through my liver to filter out the bad stuff. Too much bad stuff and my liver needs a liver to pre-filter.
