Listener Mail

So, I'm working a 2,000 piece puzzle whose BACKING matches the puzzle piece I found tucked under the edge of the area rug I laid over the traffic pattern to protect the wall to wall carpet, trying to decide if it belongs to one of the puzzles stored on top of the library shelves, or one I gave away.

Generally, if a piece is missing, I leave a note and a drawing or tracing of the piece, along with the color pattern on the missing piece.

The only one that matches is a 2,000 piece of hot air balloons.  Beautiful.  From the same company as the German castle puzzle I just finished.  I don't have a 2' x 3' space, and can't reach the middle even if I did.  I have some 20-20 vision after the five 2009 eye surgeries, but more than arm's length away is NOT one of those places.

I had to stop the automatic downloads on the podcasts on my laptop, as I wasn't able to listen 24-7.  So, now, I put on All Songs Considered as background music and go on with whatever project I've chosen to work on.  Yesterday, I decided I'd looked at the blue milk crate holding the tax receipts folders that I have yet to sort out the 2015 items and store them in a magazine folder in the library.

After typing to Japan Breakfast, Bob Bolin (from Brooklyn, if I remember right, or at least, New York City) and Robin Hilton, his co-host (from Kansas, originally, then Georgia) introduced the next group with a piece of listener mail from a southern listener.  Your Favorite New Musicians of 2016 (compiled from listener poll data, and containing a lot of people I've certainly never heard of.)

Bob (reading): Trampled by Turtles is about to be stomped by a flower–Honeysuckle.  I don't generally read listener comments, but that one was too good to pass up.

Robin (rereading), in an Athens, GA, Georgian accent: Trampled by Turtles is about to be stomped by a flower–Honeysuckle.

I grabbed a piece of scratch paper and wrote down everything up to the name of the flower.  The rest of Bob's quote was a paraphrase.  I would have forgotten the flower name, losing the best part of the exchange, but they are pretty good to publish all the names of the bands.
