all ears

The members of my extended family are planning and preparing for my grandmother's big birthday celebration this Spring. One of my cousins volunteered to assemble a DVD with pictures of Grandma throughout the years. I spent this afternoon going through photo albums and scanning images that I could email to him. In addition to a bunch of snapshots of Grandma sightseeing in Hollywood, I found two old photos that were solely for my own amusement.

When we lived in Virginia, we often visited Grandma on Long Island for the Fourth of July. I always enjoyed listening to WLNG while in the area. Whenever possible, I would seek out a Paul Sidney remote broadcast. Here we are at the Independence Day parade in Southampton, talking about radio on the radio.

Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey used to let deejays ride the elephants from the train to the venue in the various cities they visit. They don't anymore. When the circus was in town two weeks ago, I thought about the times that I was fortunate enough to have done so in the streets of Washington D.C.

Is that Megan in the first photo? You look so young in both photos, but still look the same.

I remember being sad when you got off the elephant because you needed a band-aid for your knuckle where the elephant's rough skin had rubbed it raw and caused you to bleed!
