Location: Seattle, Washington, United States

What you have here is an old guy. In education for 30 years, started teaching elementary, ended as library and media director of community college. I've enjoyed mountain climbing, sports car rallying, was pipe major of a bagpipe band, played guitar and sang during the folk revival, walking and hiking later in life. Now fairly sedentary. Enjoy reading, esp. mysteries and fantasy, but my reading is pretty eclectic. Enjoy movies, giving Netflix a workout.

Fortune Cookie

It's been a busy day, with much of it taken up by a meeting of REPS, The Radio Enthusiasts of Puget Sound. A visit with Merrill Mael's wife, Sandy. Merrill was an early supporter of REPS, and several times recreated his role as Uncle Fletcher from the Vic And Sade Show at our conventions. My wife, Anna, was happy to play the role of Sade opposite. Also at today's meeting there was a bit of a Jack Benny Christmas show, a visit by a Marine sergeant to pick up Toys for Tots, the annual Christmas tape exchange, the monthly meeting raffle (I won a CD with two shows from Our Miss Brooks from 1957), and the annual election. A woman member from Yakima brought us a gift of apples and pears from the fruit basket of Washington state, plus some discarded books on Indians from the Yakima library system. What a haul!

So we decided to have Chinese for dinner at King Wha, a local eatery and very good. Hot and sour soup, prawns and snow peas in lobster sauce, and rice. The fortune cookie said "You will go far, but be sure to come back." I hope so.

I've really been enjoying satellite radio in my car, what with the old-time radio shows I can now listen to whenever I'm driving.
