You Never Know

For a few years now, I've been calling an Edmonton radio station in the mornings offering local weather conditions and driving hazards etc. Myself and the morning crew head man Bruce Bowie at the station go back some 40 years so it's like a greeting between old friends most days. As most of us that use social media (including forum sites) we use handles, screen names, alias's whatever to be somewhat anonymous and em, secure(?). So in the mornings when I talk to Bruce I use my nickname "Josh" in the texts (think I mentioned this recently). So, it turns out my associate from our automotive side (NAPA) has the real name of Josh and he lives at Island Lake just like I do. Hehe. Naturally he gets inquiries about the weather reports and he is dumbfounded. So, this morning I came clean and told him it was me doing the notifications from Island Lake. We both had a good laugh over it.

Now Bruce (the morning crew main jock at CHED radio) is retiring at the end of this month so us "informants" will have to break in a new morning host to take his place. I guess I'll revert back to being "Daryl" with the new guy or gal for my morning info-casts. Gonna miss Bruce big time, he's like an institution in the AM Radio world in these parts, so good luck to my long time and good friend of the airwaves.

I do believe you meant "as much as I do"
