Paula, I enjoyed this episode so much. Your husband is brilliant, which, of course, is why he married you! :)

I love the March quotation from Great Expectations -- still to this day, one of my favorite books (even though everyone in school teased me for liking it), and I enjoyed hearing about how birds recognize you and hubby when you feed them.

For what seems forever, I've been telling people that the bird sounds change when I add seed. They think I'm nuts.

I think they must be related to my teasing schoolmates.

Thank goodness, I know a podcaster who understands such things.

Sending love. Looking forward to chatting with you soon.

I have to thank Bob for saving my marriage.
That's right.
If Bob had been my math teacher, I would have actually learned something and might not have felt compelled to marry a MATH/SCIENCE man, as I did, to compensate. So we are truly grateful to Bob.
Always love it when he's on the show.
