Plus because of the plantfluencer frenzy, that cactus probably cost 400% what it ought to have.

I bet that parrots can make quite a ruckus when they want to chresti. I have some noisy small wild birds around here too. It seems the small ones that chirp the loudest.

GG, between the parrots and the ravens/crows, it can get pretty noisy here!
  3:55pm Ghoulish Ghislaine:

There is a permanent and very large flock of turkey vultures in the trees behind me. Plenty of 'screaming' (and pooping). I think maybe their eyeing me, sizing me up for a snack.
  3:59pm Cooh John:

Stones and Beatles covered
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:01pm chresti:

Wow GG, where is that?
  4:02pm phat in Lincoln:

This Eleanor Rigby is awesome.

By this version, I mean Third Wave. Lol.

  4:07pm Ghoulish Ghislaine:

Am living in WV. Sorry, those aren't vultures after all, just DC politicians on Christmas recess. My mistake.

Happy Christmas Eve from Liverpool, UK
  4:21pm Ghoulish Ghislaine:

Chresti. Lived a couple of years in Smoke Hole Canyon, WV. The area is one of the most pristine areas in the country. My landlord was a moonshiner.
  4:22pm Todd Norlander:

Great show Tamar; I'm so sick of Christmas music. When you finished your Eleanor set, I was gonna request Eleanor Friedberger but you read my mind!
  Swag For Life Member 4:24pm Ralphine:

Reminds me of The Shitbirds' Christmas Is A Comin'.
  4:31pm Kevin in urbana:

This Diane and Carol song - just realized that’s the sample behind “Reality used to be a friend of mine” from PM Dawn ( regular song in rotation on Clay’s show )

As a child when traveling long distance by car if anyone asked “Are we there yet?“ My father (RIP) would respond “4 more miles..“
