We're easing back after a couple of days in which it was nice not having to be involved in the usual cha-cha. We appreciate the many comforting words given both in the thread and to us by email after the death of our mom.
While we were out, Seattle radio took another big hit: Dave Niehaus, the voice of the Mariners shuffled the mortal coil. He lived a shorter life and died more unexpectedly than our mom, who lived long and died slowly over about 3 years.
Though we're usually not concerned with sports radio, (or baseball in general) BlatherWatch needs to acknowledge the passing of this giant in local broadcasting and metaphore. We'll let his many friends, fans, and colleagues do the memorializing.
We did share his love of salami and rye bread.
