I Need A Peace Pipe

Things are a flutter at the radio station today…I turned 7!

It was 7 years ago I walked into the front doors of this place, one week before I turned 30. So technically I was still in my 20’s when I began my news career.

I’m sure that day I was much like the beginning of the Mary Tyler Moore show.

I was given three gifts on Monday…none of them for my career birthday BUT none-the-less interesting.

My boss and manager brought me back a new piece of equipment for the news department. I present to you the Weather Rock. They were gone over the weekend to the mountains and presented a game on facebook. I won.

It’s the Indian way of reporting the weather. I think this requires a peace pipe to fully grasp the reading of this rock; therefore, I sit Indian style in my office and wait for the pipe before I implement this into the news department.

A box of taffy…


And I got this from an older man who wants me to write a story concerning an insurance issue he is having. I listened to his complaint and then he pulled this handmade treasure from a garbage bag and presented to me:

I’ve never had an adult color a poster for me before. Brittany, my co-worker, is fighting me for it.

Today, we got free pizza for lunch, and two new co-workers. It’s a good day to start the radio ranch…

As my office fills with novelties of my past seven years here, (and yes the walls are all padded – they claim for sound reasons), I wonder what my next installation to this office will be, but mainly, what will be the experience that resulted in the addition.

Radio Ranch…good times.
