sc 163 “An Evening with My Father.”

April 16, 2011

Sometime back in very late 2009 Toppie started to record his father as he sat at the kitchen table while Toppie cooked dinner.  Over the course of a few months about 40 evenings of his father talking about news, family stories, and what was going on in his life at the time were recorded.  This is just one of those recordings… all captured the same evening of January 3, 2010.

Meet Toppie’s dad as he talks about the rewiring of his 1950’s MG; gay marriage and gay adoption; unusual car paint jobs, and a new bread machine he got for Toppie’s mother.  You can hear Toppie’s Mother in the background as she tries to explain a story about a dog, and a psychic test the whole family once participated in.

Of particular interest to Smellcast listeners is Toppie’s father’s speculation as to how to move a commemorative stone — the same stone that is featured in the Smellcast, episode 108.  You might want to check into the archives and look it up.  It’s a little story Toppie called “My Father’s Bro’mance.”

Of today’s episode, Toppie says he thinks the recording perfectly captures his father’s unique personality.
