Matt1: Ok!

hounder: thanks. we had a couple really good days this week. Mom wanted to go outside for a chair ride thru the neighborhood, and we had company for 2 days! it was great.

Matt1: Very nice and the weather was great for it!

hounder: ok. that seems to be a trend down here. lol. i have 2 neighbors doing the same thing.

Rush: Back!

Matt1: We’re moving into a 55+ will be saving a LOT in the HOA fees…..Ours is out of control

Rush: That was something I wanted to avoid when looking for our home…HOA!

hounder: good plan. HOAs are a pain. I’ve never lived in 1. not good at having someone else tell me what I can do with my property.

Rush: Agreed!

Rush: I have heard some horror stories!

Matt1: It has a place, but the cost at ours is double…..and when you talk retirement, you start counting the savings

hounder: some places it’s almost a mortage paymenyt as a monthly fee.

Rush: Yes!

Rush: And…YES!

hounder: be right back. dogs want out

Rush: This is a GOOD one!

Rush: many parts.

Matt1: Ready here!

sarabell2: Hi Rush, everyone! I agree mda hounder made me think of Hound of the Baskerviles too

mda19083: the Holmes hound was not friendly

Rush: Based on “Keeper of the Keys” by Earl Derr Biggers.

Rush: We start in at episode 11, I believe, and the first 10 are missing.

Rush: 4 minutes…

sarabell2: I hate it when episodes or movies are lost

Rush: As aleways, the link is above.

mda19083: working my way through the Chan canon since learning of your group

hounder: be back when i can. moms ready to go to bed.

Rush: “The Landini Murder Case…”

Rush: Okay, hounder…

mat: I didn’t know Bigger was 48 when he died!

Rush: 3 minutes…

Rush: Yes. He had heart problems.

mat: just think!

sarabell2: Did Bigger live in Hawaii too?

Rush: No…Pasadena, CA.

Rush: He did make several trips out to Hawaii.

Rush: 90 seconds…

mda19083: for research purposes

Rush: Yes, as well as pleasure.

Rush: 60 seconds…

Rush: Everyone ready?

Rush: 40 seconds…

Rush: Commercials inserted here….

mda19083: scary music to set the scene

Rush: Dramatic to be sure!

sarabell2: Like a storm coming up

Rush: Yes!

Rush: Recap here…

sarabell2: Did these episodes come on once a day, a week? Do you know?

Rush: CC’s young friend is the local sheriff.

Rush: I think they were once a week.

sarabell2: Thanks

Rush: If I am correct!

Rush: 🙂

mda19083: not wild about this Chan portrayer

Rush: I stand corrected: (1936) “The Adventures of Charlie Chan”, a 15-minute radio drama, debuts on the Mutual Broadcasting System, airing weekday evenings at 5:15.

Rush: So, this was a daily program.

sarabell2: OK thanks. I would not think people had the attention span for a weekly program, I would not

Rush: I believe this Chan was portrayed by Walter Connolly.

Rush: “Thank you…so much.”

mda19083: TYSM Rush

Rush: Holt is the young sheriff.

Rush: He took over for his father who is now blind.

Rush: Her husband is a pilot of the plane that was flying over the house when landini was killed.

Rush: Ward is the owner of the home where all this is happening.

Rush: Commercial break…

mda19083: there is that music again

Rush: Yes!

Matt1: It’s like weather music

Rush: The listeners would only hear a little of it.

hounder: i’m back. i’ll wait for the movie

Rush: Here Chan “pierces the fourth wall.”

mda19083: man who sit on tack better off

Rush: “Thank you and good night…”

Rush: To applause….

Rush: YES, MDA!

sarabell2: Thank you mda

Rush: 🙂

Matt1: <clap-clap>

Rush: Okay…more of this case next week!

mda19083: this would be better with sound effects

Rush: Again, it is taken from Biggers’ last book, “Keeper of the Keys.”

Louise: salt on watermelon? Am I among heathens?

Rush: Watermelon sounds good…always!

sarabell2: Spit it at the launch, put watermelon in space

mat: if you eat watermelon,y will suck seed! get it?

hounder: i stay away from spitoons after i got my hide tanned as a child for kicking over my great grandfathers spitoon.
