My husband took our one and only car to work with him today. I stupidly forgot to tell him that I needed it for several errands.
Fortunately, I was able to put off two of the errands until later, and the bus got me to where I needed to go. Took me longer than it would have if I'd had the car, but I was pretty pleased with myself for hoofing it and using public transportation!
The reason I say I'm unthawing is that the temperature was in the 30's while I was out and about.
I took my iPod with me and happened to be listening to Fibber McGee and Molly, "Fibber Throws a Big Fish Fry." At the end, Fibber says, "We're not unconscious of the fact that these are serious days, and bringing a few smiles to our listeners we hope we are helping to lift your spirits a little bit. The only members of the animal kingdom that are able to laugh are human beings, so let's stay human as long as we can."
The first time I heard this episode, I checked the date. The date it was aired was September 5, 1939. September 1 was the day Germany invaded Poland, and September 3 was the day England declared war on Germany.
