Posted on 01/26/2014 2:36:00 PM PST by Vision
Friends, it's Sunday night again and time to relax. Warm up the tubes for another 4 hours of classic radio Americana.
*tonight's show will be available at the "Info" link starting tomorrow.
Good evening all. We’re covered in snow here and this week it’s not expected to get above freezing!
One week to Superbowl, who do you like? I’m picking Denver as it seems to be Manning’s year; however Seattle is a slightly better team.
Tonight’s lineup? Ok. Will be interested to see what Women’s Rights are in My Favorite Husband. Sam Spade is solid, never heard of FBI in Peace and War, and Gina will be happy with an hour long Sherlock Holmes...
We have an Orson Welles' Mercury Theatre on the Air Sherlock Holmes story! :-)

Yes, indeed! Love me some Sherlock Holmes! :-)
You’re frozen in, Vision! I guess that means no barbecuing tonight. We even have snow possible (”wintry mix”) in our forecast for late Tuesday! Even though it happens once in a great while, freezing precipitation is not common down here.
We’re going for Denver, too, just because Seattle beat the Saints twice, and we want them to lose!
Anything new to report?
There’s not much new here, Vision. Typical Sunday, laundry, house cleaning, etc. One different thing though: we went to an oyster festival today over at Pass Christian harbor. It was lame. We didn’t eat anything, just looked around a little at the “arts and crafts” booths and carnival rides. They had a stage set up, and this southern rock-type band was playing at a volume so loud, you had to yell into each others’ ear to be heard. They were pretty crummy, too, and we wished they would stop playing.
We’re just ready for this arctic air to take a hike. Maybe after this next wave, we’ll get back up to average temperatures.

|Woo hoo!! And the first 28% is in!! Thank you all very much!!|
Hi, Viking! How YOU doin?! :-)
Oh, bummer! Get well soon, Viking and Mrs. Viking!
Well you tried to have a good time at the festival, that's what's important.
Yeah, we went there to see our elderly friends who were enjoying the food. Tom and Mary are 80-81, and their friend Doris is 91. We met them there briefly.
Yes, Zicam rocks, and so does Airborne. Taken in conjunction, they will greatly reduce the severity and duration of a cold, even if you don’t start taking them until after the cold has set in.
Yeah, it looks like that next system is going to be a doozy. We have a 70 to 80 percent chance of “wintry mix” down here on the MS Gulf Coast. Very rare!
You two get well fast, Viking!
Wow! A rare “not guilty” verdict on Dragnet. The dead sister did sound like a deadbeat, though.
I got caught up in a phone call and missed it.
Feel better and have a speedy recovery.
Good night, Viking. Be well soon!
“Two people who live together...and like it.”
Boy that sounds depressing.
“go get it buster you’re a big boy now”
These are some cracker-jack comedians and writers!
She’s a funny lady.
“Communism scare”? I can’t believe Ed would say that. Does he not know that those same communists (who REALLY WERE INFILTRATING OUR NATION) and their pupils are now controlling our country?! *sigh*
No he doesn’t. All is perfectly fine inside the beltway.
Yeah, then there’s that. :-/
Vision, do you use Wildroot Cream Oil on your hair?
He’s playing more Carpenters! Ugh.
I can see you’re a man who values good grooming! :-)
HAHAHAHA!!! Keith said the same thing! :-)
Love the Mercury Theater opening theme...
Yes, it’s really, really fine!
Keith said the same thing about Welles’ delivery. Yes, it is too monotone for Holmes. Spot-on!
Good night, Vision! I hope your week is a good one.
