- Aug 20, 2001Thanks, Shad, for joining our group and for sharing your delightful
poem. Yes, Don Blanding would have approved!
We always enjoy stories about how each of us "discovered" Don
Blanding and what influence he may have had on our lives.
If anyone had told me even 10 years ago that I would be shepherding a
group of Blanding fans in cyberspace -- scattered from Australia to
Egypt, from California to Quebec -- I'd have thought they were
crazy. In so many ways, this connection via the internet is
similar to that of people who heard Don Blanding's radio broadcasts,
attended his lectures, or became one of his thousands of
correspondents. I'm sure there are more than a few of us here who
remember sitting around to "watch" the radio as it communicated
entertainment and news of the world. The internet has the same hold
And I think Don Blanding would approve of that, too!
