Morsel Monday: Issue 12

My First Gig:

I've mentioned briefly before that my dad is a radio DJ.
Has been for my entire life.
My first job ever was to call in on Friday mornings while he was on air and
tell a joke for a quarter.

Well.
Mason woke up with a few bumps on his legs this morning,
(I'm pretty sure they're just bug bites.)
But they reminded me of another morning long ago . . .

and I decided to share the following morsel of my childhood with you.



Happy Monday!!

  6. That was so sweet!! How lucky you are to have your childhood voice recorded (so few of us 70s kids have that privilege).

    Your mom's comment made a little tear spring up in the corner of my eye.
