It is around 3pm. I am a the Just US! coffee shop in downtown Wolfville typing away on my netbook. The Just US! internet wifi is spotty this afternoon, and my computer is dropping and re-connecting every couple of minutes.
I slept in this morning and only got up with some reluctance. By 10 this morning, I was outside use the whipper snipper thingy to cut down some of the weeds behind the garage. Years ago, my father had a pretty thriving vegetable garden in that location. I still remember the year when a few pumpkin seeds got mixed in to a package of tomatoes. The pumpkins took over the patch, and every second meal prepared in the home that summer and fall contained that vegetable. Pumpkin pies were no longer a treat. Neither were pumpkin tarts. Pumpkin soup was no longer a luxury item in the household. There was no shortage of jackolantern's that Hallowe'en. You get my drift.
I am sipping away at an iced moccaccino. I think that's how you spell it. It tastes too good to be good for me. I want to have a second one. There is enough cash on my Just US pre-paid card to buy a couple more of them. Since I no longer work downtown close to a Just US, I have to come here to use that card. Who knows when I'll be here again.
I'm having coffee with Heidi, a woman I went to high school with back in the day. We re-connected after many years on Facebook. I have written before that FB has helped me connect with old friends in a way that would never have been possible prior to social networking sites like FB. I see the upsides of things like FB and Google+ and Twitter much more so than the downsides. She'll be here shortly, and this blog post will end shortly.
Not much else to report. I hope to resume transcribing the Dan Barton interview this evening. There is but one more audio file to go through. it is 31 minutes long and will take me 2-3 hours of work to go through, maybe more, given my attention span these days. I think that you will enjoy the interview, as Dan provides many interesting insights into radio. He knows everybody, and everybody knows him.
Heidi will be here in a moment. I guess I will draw this Bevboy's Blog to a close.
See you tomorrow.
