18WT 010 -   The laughter rolls right away with these two as they wonder if they can even say here in America and why this is “Take 2”. They are of course talking about professional sports. Now where do they begin? As season ticket holders for the Arizona Diamondbacks they decide to begin with baseball.   After 5 years of being season ticket holders they have plenty of memorabilia; from bobbleheads and mugs to shirts and baseballs. Janet can identify a lot of players from the back, which makes Patrick laugh. He knows the players by their faces; she knows them by their butts.Full Podcast show notes available here: - Your Dream Bed Starts Here Free delivery on your first order over $35.Instacart - Groceries delivered in as little as 1 hour.

18WT 008:  On this episode Patrick & Janet talk about Life in the U.S. and how warped the news makes it appear. Even worse than it really is. They discussed Presidential elections and how the Purge is coming, laughing all the way. Do all movies come true? If so, who gets to be Will Smith in Independence Day?  Janet’s Father recently passed away and he taught her many things. Among other things was how to defend herself, and those she loved.  Patrick and Janet have that in common. They passionately believe in protecting their family.  “Chatting with Momma Janet” is where you can find the blogpost is based on, this Incredible Episode 8, the first Video Chat! No makeup, messy hair, and all. The usual shenanigans are found in everything from naked faces to no hair or pink hair, “Uncle Dopey”.   Mind blowing events, Covid-19, thousands ill and dying, daily. When “the Covid” first came out in China, people didn’t think it would come to their town. Yet here it is America, Cities, towns, everywhere, as it grew, the name changed from coronavirus to covid-19. Then the masks, from nylons to gas masks, scarves to n-95’s there are so many options. Yet so many people choose not to wear one, thinking that they cannot breath or it is a hoax.Full Podcast show notes available here:
