Roy, am I mayor?

    Michael: “Peter, how do you DO it?”  Peter Pan: “Just think lovely, wonderful thoughts, Michael, and uuuuuup you’ll go!”

Hi, all. My mother will be eighty-five in April. I’m sure you remember about how she had her knee replaced in early-middle December and healed quickly thanks to good genes, a good physical therapist and her friends. Well, she went tango dancing last Saturday night, and tripped on a bump in the floor and fell and cracked her hip.

On Sunday a Kaiser surgeon screwed her back together. Everything went well; no complications. Today (Tuesday) she went to a rehab facility where she’ll be getting physical therapy for a week? Two weeks? I don’t know right now where I’ll have to be this coming Friday but if it means I won’t be able to do my show I’ll let you know and give you options.

Anyway, here is the recording of last Friday night’s (2014-03-14) KNYO Memo of the Air: Good Night Radio show ready to download and keep or just play with one click.

And here are some links to other things to listen to and/or look at and/or think about, that I found mostly thanks to the warm and fuzzy websites listed to your right:

Theremin duel! Then later, for some reason, they turn on a Tesla coil. Which is fine. A Tesla coil is always appropriate.

This river is usually bone-dry and only a river in predictable years-apart torrent spurts, so that’s a big dogs-and-kids event.
