Staycation Notes

The cartoon above does not accurately portray what I did this week so far.  I have spent some time on the computer, but do not "sunbathe" under a lamp.  I have done a lot of walking around northern Queens and finish up by reading on a park bench.  I am now reading the following book:

Clark, A, Schlossberg, D. (2014). Called out but safe: A baseball umpire's journey.

It is interesting to read about baseball from the perspective of an umpire.  Al Clark was one of only a few Jewish umpires in the history of Major League Baseball.

Some other notes:

  • Julia Collins won gave #12 last night, so we'll be watching Jeopardy tonight as she tries for #13.  For the second game in a row she won even though she missed Final Jeopardy
  • I just can't sleep late when I am on vacation.
  • Today is Mary Shaw's birthday.  Al Gordon wished her a happy birthday on his radio show on WJPR this morning.  I sent Cousin Brucie an e-mail asking him to announce it.  Right now I am listening to the Cuz.  I am sure that he will do it during his 4 hour show.
  • When I report the list of the radio stations that I listen, it is usually on a weekend, but here is my staycation list:
  • WFUV - Corny O'Connell
  • WAXQ - Jim Kerr
  • WMTR
  • WBGO - Gary Walker
  • Sirius 50s on 5
  • Tom Petty's Buried Treasure Show
  • True Oldies Channel - WPLJ-HD2
  • WWFS-HD2 - Smooth Jazz
  • WCBS-Fm - Dan Taylor
  • 1640 WJPR - Al Gordon
  • Sirius XM 60s on 6 Cousin Brucie
  • Pop Gold Radio
