did you get any rain? We got a little in Hunterdon County
TAndy 7:06:37 AM
No idea, it's cloudy out but it's supposed to clear out by 9. Hoping to hit the shore in an hour or so!

NYC would be lovely too! Maybe tomorrow? Hmmm

Two songs asked why I was born. Right now I'm born to eat this delicious bowl of cookie crisp
Krista (host) 7:29:56 AM
cookie crisp is a top tier cereal
Krista (host) 7:30:40 AM
my own personal favorite is raisin bran I mix up myself. once, my husband made bran at home and it was such delicious cardboard
Krista (host) 7:37:09 AM
fruity pebbles is my current #2, followed by Lucky Charms
TAndy 7:38:31 AM
I've yet to reach the mental age where I want to try raisin Bran. But that is the only cereal my dad eats
Krista (host) 7:39:07 AM
I've been a big fan of it since I was a kid.

Pumpkin Frosted Mini Wheats for me this morning... But I do love me some Raisin Bran as well!

Good morning Krista, MrMalcontent 💀, TAndy, Parrscream, Chef 🥚, & all!

Good morning MrM, Parrscream, Christine.
Parrscream 8:06:58 AM
Krista - I hear you... that texture is not the best... I think I still like them as an adult because those were the types of cereals my parents always had in stock when I was a kid and I need to eat some sort of cereal while I was watching my Saturday morning cartoons.
Parrscream 8:07:17 AM
GM TAndy!
Christine 8:08:08 AM
You have to let Mini Wheats sit for a minute and soak up the milk or almond milk, etc. Otherwise, they're too dry & scratchy!

@Chef, I bumped into a WPRB supporter wearing your shirt on Saturday evening at an event near Collingswood. I had been wearing mine earlier in the day, but changed bc it was a sweaty day. We almost were twins.

Brian D 8:27:54 AM
Famous Blue Raincoat another from that lp wow
Krista (host) 8:30:35 AM
It's interesting to me how much his lyrics changed from pre Yom Kippur war and post Yom Kippur war
Krista (host) 8:32:35 AM
the liner notes about the famous blue raincoat are hilarious
Krista (host) 8:32:38 AM
I had a good raincoat then, a Burberry I got in London in 1959. Elizabeth thought I looked like a spider in it. That was probably why she wouldn't go to Greece with me. It hung more heroically when I took out the lining, and achieved glory when the frayed sleeves were repaired with a little leather. Things were clear. I knew how to dress in those days. It was stolen from Marianne's loft in New York City sometime during the early seventies. I wasn't wearing it very much toward the end.
Krista (host) 8:32:57 AM
someone stole it! someone has it
