Episode 0104 - “To the Pole, Bat”

38 minutes | Wednesday, June 28, 2023

Frank Murphy is joined by his friend Kathryn Frady of Marble City Opera. Kathryn says she is 5’ 4”. Frank asks if her family measured the children’s height on a door or wall. Frank’s daughter saved a door jamb with her sons’ heights when their family moved to a larger house. 
Pool owners often have to deal with dead critters in the pool. Sometimes the animals can be rescued in time. Frank saved a bat from drowning in the pool. It clung to the fence all day while it rested and dried off. 
Frank’s wife Jere cooked steaks on the grill on Father’s Day. Frank taught his kids to sing the Father’s Day song that Groucho Marx used to sing. They changed the lyrics slightly to say they were giving him a box of frozen meat instead of a necktie. Kathryn sent her father a fresh cheesecake via a restaurant delivery service.

Frank has noticed that Google Maps alters its list of “recent searches” based on the day of the week. For example, it moves his church to the top of the list on Sundays. Frank also noticed that Google Docs asks if he wants to open a specific document that he often opens around a certain time of day.
