"The Big Broadcast is a Sunday night tradition for families throughout the WAMU listening area. Each week, Big Broadcast host Ed Walker offers listeners priceless recordings of popular radio programs from the '30s, '40s and '50s. Priceless, especially, for a man whose first sentence as a child was, 'Turn the radio on.' "

I've got an early Mother's Day dinner and will be home sometime in the 8 o'clock hour.

Like that Lux with Ginger Rogers.

Good evening everyone! Just got back from a very nice family celebration of Mother’s Day at my sister’s house in NJ. The weather was spectacular!

I'm doing OK. The barbeque-banter between you and Gina usually makes my mouth water. I've got to figure out how to be at the right weight and still eat good stuff like that.

Beautiful weather this weekend. Got lots of stuff done around the yard. Just back from a dinner with Mom in downtown DC.

Well, they threw us a curve ball. It was a good Gunsmoke called “Moon” but it didn’t sound like the episode in their description.

Well, Papa and All, tonight we are getting ready to grill two really nice, thick pork loin steaks on the charcoal grill with fresh mesquite smoke. I have been soaking the pork in a good, store-bought “steakhouse” marinade since yesterday. We will also put two big sweet potatoes wrapped in foil on the grill for the side dish, to be eaten with butter, cinnamon and local honey.

Papa, you can splurge once in a while on a barbecue, surely! :-)

Good.

You could hit the gym 3 days a week to work off the food like I do. (:

Yesterday I smoked some pork and pastrami. I tested a new injection and the pork turned out too salty, but the pastrami was good. Used hickory and apple, took about 10 hours.

You're right! I didn't catch that until you said it. Sometimes Ed does deviate from the posted lineup. Oh, well, we got to hear it as it unfolded without preconceptions. :-)

I wanted to mention 7 Bridlewreath bushes (Spirea) are in full bloom at the back of our yard. They look spectacular. What a shame it doesn’t last too long.

Oh, yes, Doc, spirea is beautiful, and as you said, fleeting. Our gardenias and magnolias are blooming, and the smell is a hint of Heaven.

Nice. My backyard has become a hobby and the goal is attractive perennials that bloom for 2 seasons. There's a climbing hydrangea back there which is blooming these beautiful fragile felt like needles. Can't imagine they'll be around for a while unfortunately. Picture from the web...



Have got 6 emerald arborvitaes and a crepe myrtle being put in Friday which will provide nice screening.

As we drive home earlier, we took back roads, and we could smell the flowers. It was a peaceful ride with no traffic. Everything is so green from the recent rain.

Your yard sounds lovely, Doc!

Since we do landscaping, we are ever collecting plants that our customers want to get rid of (I can’t bring myself to discard perfectly good plants!). Our yard is full of all manner of flowers, shrubs and trees. Here on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, we have good weather for tropical-ish plants. We have almost a nursery-quantity of azaleas we have salvaged and many other plants—roses, bananas, lilies, mums, etc.

Hydrangeas are my favorite. I've never tried growing them, but my sister can't get hers to bloom. We have some arborvitaes too in the back of the house, which are getting very big.

Found a picture of Bridlewreath Spirea online. Ours look like this right now but in a few days it will be a memory.

I read that Bridlewreath can grow up to 10 feet tall and 20 feet wide. I’ve seen them grow wild in the countryside, and they’re huge.

How the culture has fallen.

Hydrangeas are easy to grow—depending on what zone you’re in. They like sun, plenty of water and some fertilizer. Ours is blooming as we speak in hues from blue to almost pink, as are our neighbor’s.
