A 70th Anniversary Salute to D-Day June 6, 1944. A look at how radio covered “Operation Overlord”, the D-Day Invasion. The program contains coverage from CBS and NBC. You’ll hear pool reports from correspondents and broadcasts of Bob Hope, Red Skelton and Fibber McGee & Molly.

Evening all. Not sure what is up with the schedule tonight, maybe they are doing all four hours dedicated to D-Day.

This weekend has blown by...and what a shame about California Chrome...

Hi, Vision! Yes, it looks like Ed’s going all D-Day all the way. It was sad about California Chrome, but that was no surprise. It was even sadder how the owner reacted, being such a poor sport about it.

What’s happening with you?

I’m good Gina. Volunteered at my church’s festival downtown yesterday. Some fascinating people watching. Some fun, some scary. It’s really disheartening to see so many attractive, seemingly educated young women so heavily tattooed. Other things were bizarre. Overall it was fun and a beautiful day.

I’ve been perfecting my burgers and am making progress. Been eating a lot of them lately and this weekend.

Some family are over at Normandy now for the anniversary.

How’s your weekend going?

Vision, I’m with you on the young people. I’m horrified at the demonic markings and piercings these kids profane their bodies with in such profusion. It’s rare to see clear skin today.

It’s a very warm day here. I’ve been doing the usual laundry and housework. Keith’s been low-and-slow smoking a butt that he injected with apple juice yesterday evening. Praise the Lord, all is well here.

Getting ready for a D-Day evening!

Vision, did you catch Ed’s saying when he did this broadcast? His voice sounds quite a bit younger.

At least an all-DDay broadcast would put our problems in perspective.

My parents just returned from a cruise to Normandy. Dad’s a Korea vet. He was very touched by the beauty of the Americsn cemetery, and they were both impressed by the fortifications.

That’s wonderful, Brian. I’m glad your parents were able to do that.

Just cleaning up a few e-mails from home. They had tornado warnings out in Allegany and Mineral counties a couple hours ago, and Mom was in Shelter In Place mode with her laptop. They lifted the warnings but she went offline about an hour ago, so I'm assuming everything is A-OK - the sun was out and the sky blue as quick as it got ugly. Keep an eye out your window. Looks like you're about an hour away from what rolled through the hills there earlier.

Now we're getting some thunder. I may or may not be tuning in in a few minutes. We had a real roof-shaker hit about 2 AM that kept bouncing the power, the cats all got a case of the vapors from the racket, and we both were walking around clutching flashlights. Looks like we may be about to get more of the same.

Ooooo. We're about to get a big one. Sounds like D-Day out my window! LOL

My grilled beast was close to being done, when the thermometer gave up the ghost. Gotta go to the backup.

Just broke out the flashlights again - we’ve got a hailstorm so intense, it looks like it’s raining mothballs! Big boomer out there. And the grandaddy of them all hasn’t even crossed the county line yet........

Yea I keep backups of everything. Are you slicing the pork?

Here's my new butt process...pork is either plan or dusted with ksalt. No rub. Put on smoker at 300f. Use pecan, cherry, apple, etc. Try to take off at 198f. Pull meat, toss with salt to flavor. Serve sauce on the side.

I've been injecting and foiling and whatever...and now it's back to basics and it's the best stuff.

I injected with apple juice last night. Rubbed it before I put it on @ 1:15 Central War Time.

Should be done by now.

I’ll let Gina taste it and wait 15 minutes to be sure :)

If you follow I-85 there right to the GA/AL line, that's where we're at. And that Big Daddy looks to be heading a little southeast now. Toward us. The wife just found one cat under the sofa, another one cowering on the china cabinet, two others looking out the window, and one is completely MIA. We think she hid in the garage. Before we reprogrammed them into indoor rats, they were outdoor rats. And the MIA rat got caught in a bad hailstorm two years ago. She remembers. She got some knots on her itty-bitty widdle noggin.

Found her. In the closet.

I see where you are. Scary stuff around!

We have 8 rats, and they’re about as spoiled as they come. I know your getties will be fine.

“Getty” is a word we came up with from listening to the way Marshal Dillon says her name, “Kitty,” but it sometimes sounds like he says, “Getty.” So, we call ours “getties.”

We've battened down for the evening. The troops are all accounted for now. Candles and flashlights at the ready. But I have an SUV in the driveway that barely has 10,000 miles on it, and if I go out there and see one ding, dent, chip, or crack.......grrrrrrrr. Not to mention all the squash, peppers, and whatnot growing out back. You should have seen what our 2 AM storm from last night did to things. I have a feeling that sunrise tomorrow is going to turn into a FEMA damage survey. LOL!

Uh-oh. More thunder in the distance. And this one is growing as it gets closer. It's gonna roll through like a Panzer tank, this one is. I've been a trained storm spotter for the NWS for 20 years and did course work in Meteorology and Oceanography in college just as a hobby, so this sort of thing to me is like a Spaniard watching the bulls run.

We’re now listening to a Sherlock Holmes after we listened to the Gunsmoke “Home Surgery” episode a while ago on our Internet radio.

Goodnight, FRiends. See you next week, Lord willing.

Rock and Roll! Cold beer is a luxury in the heart of a storm, and the cats are great, too. :-)
