One for the Road (Trip)
Blue Streak does not have a DVD player (let alone 6 DVD players), but do we fear road trips? No!
We know one of the secrets of the universe: before there were DVDs, there was... TV.
Does Blue Streak have a TV? No! (And if he did, it wouldn't be digital enabled). Do our hearts falter? No!
Before there was TV, there was... radio! And, since all of these inventions came along, we have... the Internet!! And the Internet is brimming over with... Free Old Time Radio Shows!
We are listening to Tarzan, Sherlock Holmes, The Lone ranger, Burns and Allen, Abbott and Costello, The Green Hornet, Superman, Batman, The Fantastic 4, You are There, Family Theater, and (my personal favorite) Adventures in Research.
My favorite sources:
And if that's not enough to keep your ears busy (my goodness, where are you driving?), try Florida's fabulous free Lit to Go. Books, poems and short stories, what's not to like? Our favorites so far have been Just So Stories by Rudyard Kipling and The Light Princess by George McDonald.
