morning babble / Saturday 08-14-21
Got some records yesterday! Midday drop-off of the little girl for a playdate and on our way back home, the boy and I hit two of Newark’s record stores – Rainbow Records and Long Play Cafe. I got the INXS Kick album. Love this album. 1987. I’m old. Got that Michael Hutchence – sexy tough, I call him. Anyway, I got a couple others, because the gift cards allowed it. BUT – I also got one in particular that I never would have gotten if it wasn’t for my son. Daft Punk – Random Access Memories. Award winning album from 2013. It has the “Got Lucky” song with Pharrell Williams. But – my son at no other time has asked for a record and he rattled off some knowledge of the duo . . . so, I bought it. Books and Music – I’m all in for the kids. He’s already sat in our house library listening to the record like I do.
I ran – #226 of 5K runs!
I didn’t write much. Countdown to 15,000 is looking rough right now. My tally increased only to 2,511 words. Not quite halfway through the month and I do have today and tomorrow to do some wordage . . . maybe not that one. See – this is holding me accountable! I’m pushing.
Two upcoming races that I’ll be doing this year:
I’ll start with the one that’s farther off: I’ll be doing the Turkey Trot in Newark, DE on Saturday, November 20, 2021. Not sure yet about a charity tie-in there. I’m working on something behind the scenes with that. BUT – all in for that one. I did the 10K there back in 2019. Looking forward to being back at it again this year. Waiting for registration details
The other race I’m doing is next month and I’m all signed up. I’ll be doing the 5K run for the St. Jude Walk/Run in Philadelphia on Saturday, September 25th. I’m excited to join Charlie Maxx’s team of 92.5 WXTU. Her team is officially called – XTU to the Maxx. I used to work with Charlie back in the day and I’m excited to catch up with her again. We’re also trying to rally up some troops that we used to hang with back in the day. And yes – there’s a donation page for my run: click here – anything you can donate will be greatly appreciated for this great cause . . . and you can help me get a free t-shirt. Their phrase – “St. Jude won’t stop until no child dies from cancer” – I’m all in.
- Question #1 – Is that Gumby? Yes. A baseball Gumby, but Gumby.
