Bob Edwards was for many years the voice of NPR's "Morning Edition." His abrupt termination a few years ago left many NPR listeners (including me) very angry. He moved on to another successful career in radio and we moved on with our anger and returned to listening to "Morning Edition" because it was better than most alternatives. But please don't mention that to NPR. They think I am still boycotting "Morning Edition."
Bob Edwards has written a memoir called A Voice in the Box: My Life in Radio which will be published on September 21. This book is available right now as a free download to your Kindle or Nook, or other electronic reading devices and you can read it prior to the book release. How cool is that?
Being cool brings us back to golden Friday. Sometime ago we purchased canvas beds for the dogs to use when we were out on the porch. I must say, they were not exactly a big hit with the girls. This spring we had our decks stained again and the newly-stained boards can get quite hot in the bright sunshine. We decided to move the beds up to the deck so the dogs wouldn't have to lie under the table for comfort.
Lucy is in love with the beds.
She will lie out on the deck even when the rest of us go inside.
Ellie does not seem to be especially fond of the beds.
She will lie on them when it is hot and sunny, but prefers the deck floor when it is cooler.
Dinnertime finds both dogs lying under the table next to the person most likely to accidentally drop something. (Hint: Those are NOT my legs.) I'm just sayin'.
And here we are in September, although it doesn't feel much like it around here. So many people in our nation and in other countries across the globe are struggling and in pain. Think of them this holiday weekend. And stay safe.
HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND, EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU!!!
