California Dreaming

We're leaving tomorrow early to go to the 90th birthday party of an old, and I do mean old, friend. She lives in California. In addition to very dear old friends, we have some family still in California whom we will see.

We'll stay for a week in a hotel on the shore, as we say in the east, and plan to spend time on Catalina Island.

Last fall we went to Ocean City MD for a week and watched the sunrise over the Atlantic, and now we will be watching the sunset on the Pacific. Life's been good to me so far.

I'll leave you with MY questions of the day:

What’s the speed of dark?


How much deeper would the ocean be without sponges?

Please. I need to know.

The great questions

Radio Question of the Day:

How do dead bugs and flies get into a completely closed ceiling light fixture?

Boy howdy! At last an important question! I need the answer to this. How does anything get into an enclosed light fixture? Maybe it’s a trick question. Maybe the radio guy is gonna say that dead bugs don’t get in. Live ones do. That deejay.

Obviously the bugs were alive when they got in there. Well, I suppose elves could open up the fixture in the night and place dead bugs in there. Sneaky little suckers. But no. I think the flies and such are alive when they get in. I don’t believe in elves. Except for leprechauns of course.

Answer to the radio question of the day:

How the heck would we know???? We’re just deejays. We don’t even use our real names on the radio! You people! Get real. Ask someone smarter than you are! Ask your kids how these things happen.

BTW, I'm pretty sure it's magic.
