Part of my pre-cooking rev up for the breakfast morning ritual here at the inn is listening to the radio. The two announcers on the air are married but not to each other and they are riotously funny.
Some of today’s commentary from them and their listeners became the fodder for this blog.
I was laughing my head off and that is not an easy thing to accomplish in the wee morning hours. There are several things I know before I publish this blog. One is that these10 comments will find resonance and the other is that anyone, even the hardest of you to laugh….Will Laugh. That’s a great way to begin a Tuesday or any day. The commonality of the whole thing will also, once you get control of yourself, makes you realize that even in the most different among us there is significant common ground.

Happy Tuesday and I would love to have any other “commonalities” you can think of to add. Heaven only knows we will all identify with the additions.
