My husband decided that I was having too much fun with blogging and decided to start his own. He is an amateur radio afficianado, and has been tinkering with them since 1968. Now, our garage, guest room and various corners of our house are filled with beautifully restored “boat anchors”.
A boat anchor is a radio big and heavy enough to be used as an anchor. Most of these radios are black or grey, huge, and military in origin. When watching movies with a military flavor, such as Memphis Belle recently, we always look for the radios. It is kind of a neat thought that most of these pieces have been flown over Europe, dragged through Viet Nam jungles or sailed on Navy ships, and were the communication link that saved many a soldier’s, airman’s, or sailor’s butt.
So, I include a link to his new baby blog, and hope that he has as much fun with his as I have had with mine. My only concern is the part where he says he BUYS stuff.
We need a bigger house.
