Tu-Na Travels: Unexpected “Music to My Ears”

“Happy Anniversary, Honey” my husband said as he started his iPod shuffle. We were driving to visit the kids and grandkids and I had just settled in for a very long 16 hour road trip. Our trip had been delayed a few days and we were leaving the day of our 42nd wedding anniversary.

I breathed a deep sigh as I recalled hearing hours and hours of Money Girl, Sixty Second Science, and Sci-Fi Podcasts on our last several trips. I love road trips but there really is a limit to how many money tips or how much scientific information a brain can absorb in one trip. Let me not forget the uncountable miles I have also spent listening to Garrison Keillor’s “A Prairie Home Companion,” which isn’t really so bad to listen to if I can stay awake.

So imagine my surprise when I hear a voice coming through our car stereo system saying, “Welcome to American Patchwork and Quilting’s Podcast. I am your host, Pat Sloan.” What a guy!
