Request for Audio Recording Help

While I'm still not ready to return to blogging yet, I do want to put this request out there to my local friends. I hope no one will consider this too morbid.

I have six messages from my Mom still on our digital answering machine. Last night I recorded them onto my computer as mp3 files using a program for the Macintosh called Audio Recorder. The problem is that the recordings are not of the greatest quality, for a few reasons. I had to record them through the air, using the standard microphone that comes with the computer.

I'd really like to make the best possible copies of these messages before deleting them from the answering machine. If anyone local to me has a higher quality microphone, or a better recording program, and would be willing to come over to our place to help me out, please let me know.
