MrJeff2000 Explains It All

It’s a mad, mad, mad, mad, um what was I talking about again?

Tribute: Jon Aubrey

It's been two years since my friend Jon Aubrey died, and I'd like to share a few thoughts, stories, and one of our favorite original recorded comedy bits.

Kid Talk

My kids have been generally well-behaved for a while, so it's time to talk about them.

King of Books

Larry King used to do no prep work for his television show, which was a slap in the face to broadcasters who cared about providing viewers with interesting and insightful conversation. He also did a newspaper column that used ellipses to divide his fragmented, pointless points. I'm using a similar tact to cover two different topics this week.

Amtraking

Amtrak is expected to turn its first profit since incorporating in 1971.

There's a lot of history behind the railway system.

I manage to bungle through some of it this time around.

It’s My Birthday (Reprise)

On vacation this week, so here's the podcast from April 2017:

It was my birthday this past week. Thanks for asking. I spent the day with my sons, and reflected on how I chose the activities we embarked upon.

Where’s My Umbrella

I try to be a good tenant. And I help the landlady hire people for home repairs, among other things. But two of my umbrellas disappeared this week. And I'm mildly miffed.

Sunday PM update: Nice big blue umbrella and smaller one are both back!

Peak!

Peak TV means you can never watch everything – there's always too much.

But I was watching back when there were three networks, and I didn't even know that.

Off the Rails With the MTA

There were a full three pages of news about New York's Metropolitan Transit Authority today. So much information, in fact, that I could only talk about the first two pages.

Pool Friends

My younger son might have made a friend at the swim club this week.

Maybe.

Who Rang?

My mother has had the same telephone number for 41 years.

Post-podcast epilogue: The blocked number I referenced is ON MY BLOCKED LIST!!!
