Gavin: The Winter Olympics 2018 are nearly concluded.
Wyatt: What do we do now?
Gavin: Look back at a memory mosaic reflection.
Gavin: This contraption looks like a “kennel.”
Wyatt: You may be correct as I believe it is called a “cage.”
Gavin: I do not think we are allowed to play tug with these “sticks.”
Wyatt: It seems obvious that we should “like the luck?”
Gavin: No, no… the talk is about “ice the puck.”
Wyatt: Bobsledding sounds like such a happy event.
Gavin: What I know is that I would be happy to get out of the way.
Wyatt: The event is called “ski jumping.”
Gavin: It seems much more like “ski falling” to me.
Wyatt: You just need to be patient and concentrate to get down the hill.
Gavin: My concern is that I do not want to be a patient of the ambulance at the bottom of the hill.
Gavin: Its name comes from the patterns skaters draw on the ice.
Wyatt: I have read that figure skating has become one of the most popular events of the Winter Olympics.
Gavin: I’m watching as long as they are making figures of biscuits.
COPERNICUS ON CROSSCURRENTS, 2/19: A mathematician and astronomer who formulated a planetary model in which the Sun, not the Earth, was the center of our solar system, Nicolaus Copernicus was born on this date in 1473. Copernicus may be looking to the sky though we hope you will be listening to the radio for the Copernicus birthday on Crosscurrents, 2/19 at 8 am.
YEAR OF THE DOG ON WTBA, 2/17: The Chinese zodiac calendar brought us to the “Year of the Dog” this weekend. You are invited to join Gavin, Wyatt, and John for a blues show in honor thereof on Walking The Blues Away, KRNN radio, 2/17 at 5 pm. ( radio link: http://www.krnn.org )
Gavin: This weekend begins the Year of the Dog.
Wyatt: Yes indeed. Loyal and friendly… that’s us.
Gavin: Does this dog-year deal mean we get more biscuits?
Wyatt: I just hope there are no firecrackers!
Gavin: What do you call trails that make lots of money?
Gavin: To air is human…
Wyatt: …to land is divine.
Wyatt: I just realized something.
Gavin: What’s that?
Wyatt: It is clear why the sport is called “cross” country.
Gavin: I think you are “barking” up the correct “track.”
