Post 4062 - Thursday Things

 Well, hello again.

It rained most of the day, so I did not take the advice people gave me about mowing the lawn, front one day, and back on another day. Instead, I just watched it rain and rain and rain some more, and observe the grass seeming to grow ever longer. If the lawn ever dries up, I will tax my little piss pot electric lawn mower to its maximum 8 amps and beyond. 

We did go out today to get some groceries. Filled the gas tank as gas is supposed to go up Thursday night by several cents a litre. Returned home and I cooked some fish for dinner. 

Tonight we watched some stuff on the PVR including the season ender of The Good Fight. The show gets better and more eclectic every season, and this was no exception. 

Friday will be an interesting day in Halifax radio. After nearly 50 years working in the medium, Rick Howe is retiring. I have been listening to Rick for decades now. I proposed to Patricia on his old Hotline show years ago (she said yes). He graciously had me on the air discussing cold cases, twice, in 2020. 

I will miss listening to him. Todd Veinotte says he will be the "interim" host of the show, which leads me to think that Rogers has not made a decision yet as to who the permanent host will be. I don't know if they will spend some money and get a NAME to be the host or if they will look at Todd and give him the okay to continue. Maybe Norma Lee MacLeod, retired from the CBC for the last few years, will get a phone call and an invitation to try out. I don't know. 

I just know that I will miss listening to Rick. Enjoy your retirement, sir.

You all have a good evening. Talk at you tomorrow.
