Podcasts...they are so great~!

First of all, look at this picture. Look at these great people celebrating a 50-year-old man's birthday on a Sunday morning in June.
Downtown Portland.
It looked like so much fun that I almost inserted myself in to the party and had a bite, but there was a quilt show to attend.
Hard choice

Podcasts...
Short note:
"This American Life" has perhaps the funniest David Sedaris story this week. You must go and listen, it is an oldie, but a goodie...story about American tourists in Paris....I am still smiling....Mr. Froggy Stinkpot.
It is Episode#173: Three Kinds of Deception 59:36 6/24/2007 A story of self-deception, a story about deceiving others, and a story about accidental deception. And how one type of deception can easily turn into another.
Also there are some craft ones that I have started subscribing to....so far Craftsanity seems good.
Listen to some, they are fun.

I have just discovered podcasts myself and totally love them. I think I have This American Life on subscription, but I better go check cuz I want to hear David Sedaris. I loved his book Me Talk Pretty One Day that had some essays on living in Paris. cheers.

I heard this David Sedaris story twice on This American Life and, dare I say it? It almost made me wet my pants both times! Love your blog. Add me to your 3-5 readers and please visit mine.

Thanks so much for all your lovely comments. I just have one question for you: Are you really 250 years old as your blog profile states?

Ok, LOVED that one. Also, was lol with the Paris one. Rob and I both listened and then discussed we have become the David Sedaris and partner people. When Rob's mom was visiting she was SO LOUD. We were not used to it and it freaked us out. She would yell on the bus, "when do we get off", or "what did he say?" if the driver would talk. It was so classic!
