This...


...is not ok...snow on April 2nd?  Who authorized this?

Very disappointing...

So I bought a Philco Consolette radio...a 1937 model 620:

...but FedEx beat it up pretty badly in shipping...dropped it off at Bob Chase's vintage electronics repair yesterday...working through the claim process with FedEx...annoying.

On my way back from Bob's place I stopped by St. Patrick's church...it was snowing like crazy and this beautiful, old church looked wonderfully majestic in its pastoral setting:


Right next to it is the cemetery:



I guess with the passing of my brother Ken I've been contemplating the way of all flesh...

The rest of the weekend was pretty low key...Karen and I had planned to watch a movie in the theater room but that didn't work out...we did get out to an antique shop today but didn't see anything compelling.

And now we're staring into the gaping maw of yet another work week...o boy...

Last year at this time we were traveling down to New Orleans on the City of New Orleans train out of Chicago...that was a good trip over spring break.  Would be nice to be someplace warm instead of here...o well...

Later, mcm fans...
