Annie is back from her trip to Florida and Matt's been chilling here. Annie's family got sick during the trip but still managed to have a good time. Matt relaxed and enjoyed the easy commute and the quiet with lots of people seemingly out of town. We talk about the books we've been reading, shows we watched, among other things. 

After the break, we get into library stuff like the short story contest and upcoming events. It's a fun episode where we somehow start talking about Uncle Harry's Deli and Annie's Dutch Blitz rites of passage. 

Black Puma's Colors closes us out for the week. Thanks for listening and enjoy the episode.
