Love the new washing machine.
Our tiny laundry area is located in the kitchen. When we had house built, Kibby & I wanted a huge tub. We got the tub, but sacrificed having a real laundry room. Totally worth it.

In honor of the passing of Meatloaf, The Bat Out of Hell albums and others will be playing in the library for the next couple days. Clips of his movies and other tv appearances will be playing in the south alcove.

I am very bad at remembering musician names and it takes me a while to finally associate someone with songs I have enjoyed in the past. We were just talking about him the other day and I was wondering to Jeff how someone comes up with the stage name "Meatloaf". I'm not sure why, but Jeff did say the fellow was much larger size than the skinny guys who were in bands at that time. I was just watching a music video.

I heard a different version of the story today during a tribute programme on the radio. According to them he'd had the nickname since he was a baby. Can't say whether that's true or not.

Perhaps he liked meatloaf even when he was little? Or maybe he was round and Roly poly like a meatloaf in a bread pan?

In one video, he said his dad asked why he looked like some beef, or something like that. Puts on Meatloaf's greatest hits.

He was in an episode of the tv series Monk. The episode is called Mr. Monk and the Voodoo Curse. In the movie Wayne's World also.

Apparently he was also in Rocky Horror Picture Show! That's a favorite of mine though I've never seen the movie in a theatre or been to a live performance. Maybe someday.

Michael Whelan did the art for at least one Meatloaf album (Back to Hell). And he also did the cover for at least one Pern book (The White Dragon).

One cover for the Incarnations of Immortality series. By Piers Anthony. The book called Bearing an Hourglass. As well as the cover art for a book for a Dragon Con sometime between 2001-2005!

You're a Rocky horror virgin! That's someone who's never seen the movie. From what I've heard, fans of the movie bring supplies for the different scenes and throw them.

Yes, I saw it in a theatre once and we forgot to bring our newspapers so we got soaked in one of the early scenes!

For headaches, yes but I think they used tusillago syrup for coughs. That is from Nerilka's Story I think. So sending you a big jar of it.

Mawra, I'm having a glass right now even though I don't have Covid. I'm sending you a virtual bottle. I hope you like Benden white? It tastes a lot like a good chardonnay.

How come the books mainly mention Benden wine? Didn't they have different beers too?? If my memory is still good, I recall that beer is mentioned in Dragonlovers Guide to Pern!

Mawra, I hope that chicken noodle soup does the trick!

How about a nice toboggan slide in snow outside in the playground? Of course, it is separated from the lovely warm beach and palm trees. And wonderful, easy walking trails with lovely scenery.

You can have the book on the beach. I sunburn easily so sitting or lying on a beach is not for me. Sunscreen on and I'm going beachcombing. Might find some nice sea glass or even a few arrowheads!

Sister is back to normal. I'm cough a lot still and exhausted. Hubby is achy and exhausted. Kibby is doing too much coughing for my piece of mind. She almost sound like she has Whooping cough.

That is very concerning about Kibby. I am sure you are monitoring it closely and will take steps to get her relief. I'm glad your sister is doing good. Take care!

I have been wondering and worrying. I think she was planning on a two week visit to family around Christmas but that is quite a while ago, even considering making a longer stay.
