Episode #236: We Just Wouldn’t Stay Away

Saturday, July 29th, 2017

July goes out with high temperatures in the morning and a 50% chance of cooling showers in the mid-to-late afternoon. We have no idea what that means. We just want to get your attention and get you to listen. What do we have to do? Look at this list, this is pretty odd, and odd is interesting and beautiful, isn’t it? Well, isn’t it?

You didn’t answer right away. If you had really thought this was interesting and beautiful you would have spoken right up. We know when we’ve been insulted.
