11. My sister and I discussed that
Edited on Sat Nov-26-05 02:55 PM by Ratty
Does your father have a CD player?

He does have a CD player but we're not sure how he would stop at a certain spot so he can come back to it later. It has a remote control too which seems awfully convenient. Still, we decided a cassette tape would probably be best. I can record them from CDs because, as you've noted, audio tapes are very hard to come by. Mostly they're only available used, but that's okay.

I have never known him to read fiction. He's really fascinated by sciency things. This 10 minute astronomy program on the radio is his absolute favorite and he gets grumpy if he doesn't wake up in time to listen to it. He's always been especially fascinated with the collapse of societies, from years back. Appeals to his pessimist side.
