But who’s counting?

Long day. Full of day things, and then evening things. Thankfully, Griffin and Meredith were riding the sports desk tonight:

Meredith is awesome and does it all, and she pulled double duty on the talk show.

She also anchored the news Tuesday night. Told ya, she is awesome:

Here’s another show they produced Tuesday night, Meredith was probably working in the control room somewhere:

They shot several more shows tonight, they’ll be online tomorrow and through the weekend.

And so, at 8 p.m. tonight, I got to go home. It was 9:15 p.m. Monday, 8:15 p.m. Tuesday, 5:00 p.m. Wednesday and tomorrow, promptly, at 5 p.m. on Friday. I’ve literally done this all day!

I’ve got style, for sure

Put this little number together today in the pre-dawn hours. This came together pretty nicely.

Oh, go read this book. I finished it this weekend and forgot to bring it up in a more timely fashion. Don’t let that dissuade you: it’s an incredible tale.

You can find it here. The author, Adam Makos, writes in the preface about how he came to the story, how he tracked down the American pilot who said, No, you have to talk to this other man. He’s the star in my story. This would be the German fighter pilot, and that’s the way the story is told. And when you read it, you know what, he was right.

More on Instagram and check me out on Twitter as well.

Happy Pi Day

Ask a nice person out for pie. Date ’em for four-plus years. Get married. Eat pie every Friday for more than a decade. It works every time.

This one was a homemade apple pie. It was delicious.

A Valentine’s Day with books

Today, at its best, looked like this:

And I am officially ready to move on from the weather.

So we’re to the magazines. We’ve now flipped through two Reader’s Digest, and today we’re continuing our gander at a few of the ads from this third issue, the October 1966 issue. There are five images to check out today. Click the book cover below to jump right in to today’s additions.

If you’d like to check out all of the stuff I’ve posted from my grandfather’s books so far, start here.

And when you’re done there, I made Valentine’s Day puns.
