Breakfast In Bed With The Grateful Dead


The Twins sent me this photo from Melbourne Australia. They were super bummed because they rode the train to their favorite 50m lap pool. Only to discover that it was closed due to air quality conditions. So I Sent Them This Shot


But maybe I should have sent them this one instead. Still leaving hearts in the snow banks and sure hope it makes someone smile as they bound on by. Or Maybe A Change Of Perspective


SNOWSHOEING:

Poor old Doc has been pretty down and out because he made the decision put his Old Girl Greta down last week.


Time to get him out of the house, 10,667ft later, we were under bliss conditions of sunshine, fresh fluffy snow, and reminiscing stories echoing through the Ponderosa Pines. We stuck to the groomed trails but there was still crispy crunching sounds of snow with each step forward in time.


And then Lilly makes an appearance. She is 10 years old and was happy to trot along with her human. She was happy to come right to me for a pet and butt rubbings while her human and Doc talked about how they would correct all the worlds short comings.


I took this shot of us to HASHTAG #LOKI LIVIN and then accidentally snapped this shot of my chin. Not a very flattering photo but I love the snow in the trees. What Do You Think ANDREW


RADIO SHOW:

Here is the LINK to my latest radio show from Wednesday the 15th 2020. And yes PERTH, I prefer to stand during my show. The show officially started at 6am but I was broadcasting just before 5am. So this copy will start with The String Cheese Incident passing around a jam during Pretty Polly. Breakfast in Bed w/the Grateful Dead "starts" about 2min into this link and that link is only good for two weeks.


Excellent Variety Show!! I had a blast and throughly enjoyed the phones calls all morning. I "opened" the show with a TRON remix, filtered in Goldfrapp, New Order, Elvis Presley, Squeeze, Three Dog Night, Lettuce, Crosby Stills & Nash, and capped the show off with Umphery's McGee covering The Police with their rendition of Walking On The Moon. Throughout the show I mixed/overdub Batman & Robin clips, Airplane Quotes, and The DAWGS scene from the Guy Ritchie film SNATCH.


PUSH UPS:

Started a new routine to break up the monotony and even as a little motivating factor as well. Instead of doing my 100 push ups like I have in sets of 20 or 25 depending on my groove. I am now going with 9 sets. The breakdown/pyramid looks like this - 4 8 12 16 20 16 12 8 4


So Stay Strong And Hydrate Often,
Cheers

  1. Before I read your mention of me, I thought, I don't mind your chin photo at all. It's a nice photo with the trees above. You could have added some white stuff to your beard.

    Hearts in the snow are nice and today I was reminded of what I had forgotten about blanketing snow, the silence.

    It's a tram actually to Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre, not a train but it was once was a train line. Sorry for the pedantry. I can see the tram from my bedroom and balcony. Curious to close an indoor pool because of what has been smoke like we have never seen before.

    1. Agreed, I Liked The Trees But Not So Much The Face. Not Bad For An Accident.

      Yes, The Silence And/Or Solitude

      Tram, Yes. No Worries As I Am Just A Simple Stupid American. However, I Always Appreciate Any Guidance Or Clarifications. I Learned Many Moons Ago To Embrace Others And Not Get So Butt Hurt All The Damn Time.

      Thanx For Checking In Drew!! Have A Brilliant Weekend!!
      Cheers

  4. I love the snow photos! I just got back a couple of weeks ago on a winter trip across Europe and had no luck at snow, except for a few flakes in Prague (Which I am very thankful for because still, it was my first snowfall no matter how light it was)

    I am sure the twins loved the cool photo you sent them, my heart goes to Australia and the lives there. Here, we are also suffering from a volcanic eruption just 30 miles away from my side of the province. We were not affected but almost a million were and it's sad. Though seeing how most of us Filipinos take their chance sto offer help makes my heart happy.

    Please send my love to Lilly! Super cute!

    Happy New Year Padre! Stevenson

  8. Can't imagine what it's been like in NSW and Victoria over the last few months, Perth and Western Australia has been lucky so far, still a bit of summer to go though. Sad about Doc's dog, heartbreaking when our furry friends move on. Love to see your snow pics 💙 The 6am gig is a bit different Padre, you usually do the late evening show don't you? Will listen tomorrow ✨

  13. I don't like the snow or the cold, but if I was out and saw that heart in the snow, it would make me smile. Have a great week.

  14. It is so hard saying goodbye to your dog so I'm glad that you got doc out for such a fun adventure. Meeting a nice dog on the trail was perfect!

    That heart would make me smile too!!!! I just heard a radio story about a sled dog race out near you. Maybe the mushers will see the heart :)

    1. Its Beyond Words When We Let Our Beloved Pets Slide Towards Their Next Journey And Meeting Lilly Was Good For The Soul

      The Sled Races Are Right Up The Road. I Never Went Because The Boy Dog, any dogs they say, Are Not Allowed As They Are A Real Distraction.

      However, When The Boy Dog Was In His Prime, I Trained With A Guy That Pursued His Pro Racing Career Of Sojourn Racing. He Had Two Dogs And Began Racing In Alaska For "Real" Cash.

      Sending Vibes Your Way,
      Big Hugs
