Glad to hear it, chresti.

Howzit over there, Handy?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:59pm Handy Haversack:

It was nice enough here today that I feel kind of guilty for reading on the couch through the early afternoon and then just playing poker. Should have gone outside for the beginning of cards at least. Like 50F and bright and sunny.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:04pm chresti:

I know what you mean, Handy. I feel guilty staying inside when it's my favorite weather (cool and partly cloudy)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:06pm chresti:

50 degrees is perfect.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:09pm listener 126464:

I'm getting in on this. Hi Rob, everyone.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:10pm Handy Haversack:

I realized it had been weeks since I had three hours to just lie around and read. Felt pretty nice.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:39pm Ike:

Hi all! Outdoor haircut success! I’m so glad I no longer look or feel like I have a rabid mutant fuzzy Persian cat residing on top of my skull and very slowly trying to crawl down the back of my neck.

Congratulations Ike!

I’m terrible at judging haircuts so don’t necessarily take this as the highest-quality endorsement imaginable beyond the very high safety levels, but fellow Brooklynites, it’s Clinton St. Barbers in Bklyn Hts.

Thanks TDK60! Yes, hoping to introduce an interesting West African artist right here in the US who's been a bit under the radar up to now.
