Good morning Amanda & Jim. The birds and mammals in Monmouth County say hello.

@yippie I don't know if "real philosopher" means person who studied and practices philosophy or person with a lot of wild ideas about the world, but either way that's amazing!
  7:06am Toothgrinder Tom:

@Tardigarde A I think that’s the distinction between a philosopher and a ‘coffeehouse’ philosopher.
  7:07am yippie:

maybe I should have said "real philosophy professor" instead of "real philosopher"

  7:55am Listener Robert:

Having fallen back asleep with WMFU on, I dreamed I was there and about to make breakfast for you, and then chckened out. Instead I started to just make it for myself, and pulled out one egg, and then from the opposite corner of the carton I started to pull out another egg, when it cracked in place, and you know what a mess that leaves in the carton. I was wavering over whether to go thru with my original plan and use them all, when I woke up.
Avatar 😼 Swag For Life Member 7:55am dale:

going to the vet during pandemic was lousy - they wouldn't let you in with your pet so you couldn't ask questions on the fly or be there with your buddies when they needed you.
  7:55am queems:

good morning alan!! i’m so psyched people like it. i’ll be over there next week so i’m excited to see it in person

@dale...We had to put two of our kitties to sleep at the vet during covid. They would take the carrier away and bring it back empty. it was heartbreaking we couldn't be there...

This might be the best piece of recorded music that exists in the universe today

  8:03am queems:

@strandlund i’m so sorry that happened to you. i put my cat to sleep during the pandemic too, but it was in 2021 so things had loosened up a little. i can’t imagine what that was like for you.
Avatar 😼 Swag For Life Member 8:04am dale:

strandlund - that's hard. we had to let fraidy cat go in june and the vet let us in. have to be there for them to see you and be brushed while it goes on. we bring them home and bury them with perennial bulbs. when the daffodils come up they are still giving to us.
Avatar 8:08am TDK60:

I got to see the Horse Lords a few years back at Pioneer Works in Brooklyn, with Daniel Menche. | By the way, is it okay to now be talking about the pandemic in past tense? I doubt it but am not sure.
  8:08am Tardigrade A:

@Strandlund How heartwrenching. So sorry that was how you had to say goodbye to your cats
Avatar 😼 Swag For Life Member 8:09am LW Rhino:

I had to put my dog Kirby to sleep in August. The vet came to the house. I sat on the couch next to my buddy as he followed the rainbow over to the other side. Too much life has been taken from this world :(
  8:10am Listener Robert:

Just before quarantining was about to start, we got a vet to make like an "all aboard" house call before that ship sailed, to euthanize Bob's VERY old long-hair chihuahua. A year later Bob died from diabetes-complicated Covid. Good thing Bob didn't die before his dog, because she didn't trust anybody else.
  8:10am bobob:

Kitty Woman song ...Sam what??
