Howdy HTRG and Beckaroos!

Hi Becky, you could also be getting taller.
Avatar 8:04pm Mailman Tom:

This is the place to be on a Wednesday night.
Avatar 8:04pm dale:

howdy miss becky. mosey on down to the dollar store and get those magnifying cheater glasses. 2 or 2.5 power and you'll be able to read fine print again.
Avatar 8:04pm JakeGould:

Glasses are fine. I actually avoided them for a part of my 20s. Happy to have them now.
Avatar 8:04pm dale:

marcel's answer was better.
Avatar 8:05pm JakeGould:

@MarcelM: Her arms could be getting longer as well.
Avatar 8:07pm Becky:

I admit, most of my fear of glasses stems from that Twilight Zone episode with Burgess Meredith. Hi everybody!
Avatar 8:07pm JakeGould:

But Becky has good ears. So hey!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:11pm Greg from ZONE 5:

Evening, Becky!
Avatar 8:11pm dale:

if it's just that you have to hold things far away to read get the dollar store magnifiers. if you don't have trouble driving or taking the path or piloting ocean going craft you're just being a normal human being..
Avatar 8:14pm Becky:

Maybe I've just been working too hard.
Avatar 8:14pm Marcel M:

@Jake: True! Many posibilites!
Avatar 8:16pm JakeGould:

FWIW, I’m nearsighted and work in tech but my eyes get tired and it gets worse temporarily. Simply napping or even going to see art or just doing things where you see thing deliberately in the outside world—as weird as that sounds—helps.

Lay It On the Line - beautiful song. I can't find anything about it online!
Avatar 8:28pm Becky:

@Anne - Yep, that one's in the obscure one-off category, I would say. I don't know anything about it either!
  8:30pm Anne:

Too bad! It's the kind of song I want to hear again as soon as it's over.
Avatar 8:32pm Mailman Tom:

Becky, do you have "Daddy's Sick Again" by Arkey Blue? It was included on the soundtrack to the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
Avatar 8:32pm Becky:

@Anne - There's always the archive of this show, I suppose!
Avatar 8:34pm Becky:

@Tom I don't, though strangely I brought something else on the same label with me tonight...
  8:35pm Anne:

Ha, true! I'll be coming back to it.
Avatar 8:36pm Mailman Tom:

What record label would that be, Becky?
Avatar 8:38pm Becky:

@Tom - Tonka! Coming up next.
Avatar 8:43pm Mailman Tom:

Thanks, Becky!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:44pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Got any songs about Oregon tonight, Becky? If not, I'll hit up Ken's archive from this morning.
Avatar 8:48pm Becky:

@Ken - I would say "Busted" or "Showdown" both qualify.
  8:51pm jon:

never even knew i liked honky tonk til becky came along. great job every week
Avatar 8:52pm Becky:

@jon Thanks, buddy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:54pm Ken From Hyde Park:

@Becky - Them's qualify! Possibly "Hangin' On," too, for the remaining interlopers.
Avatar 8:55pm Becky:

Yuks, y'all.
Avatar 8:56pm JakeGould:

Chicken plucker.
