no school in foster/glocester

no school today, in charlotte nc -- because there was a report of a snowflake within a 100-mile radius of the city.
which brings us to this post, which salutes rhode island's own salty brine (1922-2004).  ..salty was a radio host for w.p.r.o., where he was loved by everyone, especially children.  ..he used to end every show by saying "brush your teeth and say your prayers!" before he signed off.

salty is also famous for the many, many, many times when he would say "there's no school in foster/glocester," because the rhode island towns of foster and glocester would literally shut down at the hint of snow.  ..growing up in providence, we always dreamed about how great it would be to live in foster/glocester.


this (below) is what life looks like, from my back porch today:
