2022 At 78 RPM-Part 40

October is finally here, and I know you've got Halloween on your mind. But I don't have any Halloween music to share with you, just another big batch of Christmas music. More of the same good stuff you've been getting for the previous 39 weeks, and the same stuff you'll keep right on getting each weekend all the way through to the end of the year. There's enough in the stack to see us through to the end, and I'm still downloading, so it's going to be packed full, I promise. But let's get this week out of the way before I go worrying about any other weeks. Check out some of the label scans and you'll see some of the goodies you can download from the MEGA link below. Enjoy!


Oh, you might be interested to hear I just survived a near miss from Hurricane Ian. I woke up Wednesday morning to find that not only was I still in the cone, I was right under the dotted line they show on the TV in the center of the cone. I looked out my window between the rapidly moving clouds, and I could see the line! But later in the day the storm pushed a little more to it's right and the eye went ashore a couple hours south of us. That's the second time it's happened to me since I've lived here. Hurricane Charley in 2004 was headed right for me and wound up striking about an hour and a half south. One of these days, I'm not going to be so lucky. Anyhow, this time we lost power at about four in the afternoon, roughly when the storm was making it's closest approach. We were down for about 27 hours, and damage was minimal to the condo. Other folks around weren't so lucky. We were able to go back to work on Friday, though there was some water that needed pushed out of the building. Before the power went out, I was hoping to get a lot of Christmas music recorded, but in the end I wasn't able to do much but sit on the couch and try not to open the fridge.

And now I'm trying to replace the garbage disposal. It's been cracked and leaking for a long time, and it hasn't worked even longer than that. I'm hoping I got a direct replacement and it won't require any actual PVC plumbing work, but we'll see. I keep taking on these home maintenance projects with no idea what I'm doing. Wish me luck!
