"Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me!"

This is for all our fellow NPR (National Public Radio) fans. On a recent pledge drive, Mom and Dogdad kicked in some "green papers" to see a live taping of one of their favorite shows, "Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me!" The taping was last night at Miami's Lincoln Center equivalent, the Adrienne Arsht Center, and will be broadcast this Saturday, February 5th.

Before the show, the folks --- after leaving us alone with the customary bribe -- dined at the bar of a lovely restaurant, Prelude, inside the Center. Mom had a martini with olives and smoked salmon carpaccio. Dogdad had a gin and tonic and pot pie. No camera to record the meal, so you'll just have to imagine the deliciousness.

The restaurant was filled with folks who were also attending the taping, and lots of lively chatter echoed through the room.

Ah, but then the show. One word: hilarious! The guest was Carl Hiaasen -- famous for his columns and novels about our fair state: Flori-duh. And especially South Flori-duh.

We will say no more. Turn to NPR on Saturday morning and imagine our Mom and Dogdad convulsed with laughter in the audience.

Wirey woofs,

Jake and Just Harry

Oh I am so jealous. We listen to that show every week!

We sure wish WE were in Flor-i-duh right now! Our weather is really stinky! Yesterday at 5 p.m., it started snowing, then it turned to sleet and eventually to very hard rain! I guess that means we will be home tomorrow to listen to NPR!

Stella said...

Hi Barkalot Boys! Thanks for your nice comment about me and the Fed Ex guy and the cookie

80 degrees sounds very nice to me and it wouldn't take much to get us to travel that way. However, today Mom just finished Carl Hiaasen's Star Island and she needs to wait for those memories to drift away first.

Cheers and hugs,

Stella and her Mom

That sounds like great fun. I swear NPR kept me sane when working in Oklahoma in 1988-90!
Cheers, Gail.
