Yay space! Yay human ingenuity! Yay future possibility!
  7:43am Rob from Maryland:

I agree with Jim the Poet. The skipping added to the piece
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:43am Amanda:

Well, you'll get to hear it non-skipping soon and you can compare the two.
  7:44am Toothgrinder Tom:

I wonder why they scheduled the launch of the telescope for Christmas morning. Wouldn’t the astronomers and engineers rather spend the day with their families?

Merry Christmas morning, Pillippe! No big plans. Finally found an in-network ortho, so that was the last of the medical snafus to get sorted. Spent the past 2 days doing the last consolidation/cleaning to be fully settled into the new place and put up the light strips. Been a long year. It's just nice to relax with you fine people. Grateful 😊
  8:43am Daybreak & The Christmas Magic:

Merry Christmas to bad animals and all animals everywhere! Glad I got up early enough on a Saturday to catch a kitten serenade.
Sorry to hear Jim the poet isn’t feeling well, thank you for your shift on week this past week.
Amanda I hope you are doing very well indeed, and as everyone said, thank you so much for being here for all of us and all the animals whatever their behavior.

What’s that? Hang on.

Hi Kathleen, so excited to hear you on the air tomorrow!
  8:49am Phillippe Bastille:

@hyperdose glad to hear you’re getting things cleared up. I agree, ready for this year to be done, December in particular. Mom broke her hip, our company for dinner today tested for Covid, wife awaiting Covid test results because she had been hanging out with them, dental issues, and that’s just for starters lol. And I agree, it’s a day to be grateful. My FMU extended family makes even the worst day a little better.
  8:49am Daybreak & The Christmas Magic:

🎵Through the years will all be together if the fates allow…🎵

It makes me so happy that I was able to fly my brother up from Columbia South Carolina on Wednesday evening. A lot of other stuff has gotten canceled or modified but I’ve got my older brother and that makes everything better and more magical!

Been seeing a lot of unfortunate last minute pre-xmas positive results. Hoping it's just due to the holiday rush. Seems like most people have at least been tested. Hoping for a safe 2022 for everyone ❤️✨💚

Jim, my late housemate Listener Steve on hearing of your being out on account of deer and moose encounters would've laughed and said, "THAT hung over, huh?" Feel better whatever it is.
