Make Up My Mind Art

I'm a creature of habit. I like to do things in a certain way at a certain time. OCD? Maybe. But it makes me happy. So "Neener Neener". On my drive home from work, I like to listen to late night AM radio. I've always loved that P H A T sound from AM. So, I listen to a little of Jim Wilke and Jazz After Hours on P.R.I. till Coast to Coast AM comes on with Art Bell. It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

Well, I got a rude awakening when I tuned into C2C only to hear Ian Pundit on. I was thinking, "Ok. Art's spending time with his wife and new daughter".

BZZZZZZZZTTT!!! Wrong! He retired. AGAIN!

Make up MY mind Art. The only reason I listen to C2C is to hear you. You're the guy that made the show. I tried to listen with George and Ian, but they just don't compare.

So Art, spend time with the family. Enjoy, savor and relish your new fatherhood. I'd love to swap funny stories and tips on parenting with ya'. But know this, I'll be waiting and watching for your return. How do I know you'll return? Well, first the like 5 times before when you "retired", and the fact that for guys like us, radio is in our blood. We radiate RF. Not being on a mic is like not breathing. So I have no doubt you'll be back. It's just a matter of when. But I'm not rushing you. Take your time and enjoy the family. Maybe I'll get lucky and hear you on 3840 KHz some night. I'd love to swap a QSL card with you.

So Jim, it looks like you and I are going to be hanging out for a while. At least till Art comes back to work.

So, Jim, you like ham radio?

Thank You

Yeah you know who you are....

Thank You - From Led Zeppelin II
(Page/Plant)

If the sun refused to shine, I would still be loving you.
When mountains crumble to the sea, there will still be you and me.

Kind woman, I give you my all, Kind woman, nothing more.

Little drops of rain whisper of the pain, tears of loves lost in the days gone by.
My love is strong, with you there is no wrong,
together we shall go until we die. My, my, my.
An inspiration is what you are to me, inspiration, look... see.

And so today, my world it smiles, your hand in mine, we walk the miles,
Thanks to you it will be done, for you to me are the only one.
Happiness, no more be sad, happiness....I'm glad.
If the sun refused to shine, I would still be loving you.
When mountains crumble to the sea, there will still be you and me.
