Happy New Year’s Eve! It’s the 7th day of Christmas. Krisha & Frank are wearing ties and Krisha thinks she looks like she’s in show choir.

Frank is mad at himself for letting mildew grow in his rubber drinking straw. Krisha uses pipe cleaners on her water bottle.

Frank enjoys wearing ties. Jere makes him a spreadsheet for his wardrobe on East Tennessee PBS Scholars’ Bowl. Krisha says it’s comparable to her categories of underwear.

Frank will miss out on hosting New Year’s on the Square in downtown Knoxville. Krisha is glad that she will spend her last night of the year on stage as Sweet Fanny Adams Theatre closes forever.

During the shutdown, Krisha has been able to watch online performances by artists she wouldn’t have seen otherwise. Frank has watched Knoxville Opera and Marble City Opera performances online.

Krisha & Frank recall some positive moments from 2020 and show clips of Frank ringing in 2020 on Market Square. Can we blame him?

It’s the 6th day of Christmas. Krisha only has two shows left at Sweet Fanny Adams Theatre before it permanently closes. Traffic has been extremely heavy in Gatlinburg. She is looking forward to getting outside and running more often.

Frank has a list of reasons why he hates winter. His mom had prints of three paintings by her cousin. The prints show scenes of autumn, winter, and spring. Frank Jr. will take two of the prints but somehow Frank Sr. got stuck with the winter print, which he doesn’t want.

Krisha donated some coats to charity. She had hoped to volunteer on Christmas Day but the charities she asked were not accepting volunteers due to COVID.

A few years ago, Jere’s mom was in a hospice on Christmas Day. Frank and Jere were looking for an open restaurant that morning. They went into a pancake restaurant but found out that the restaurant was only serving homeless people that morning.

That afternoon, they were listening to Handel’s Messiah on WETA-FM in the hospice room. Jere sang along with the Hallelujah Chorus and her mom passed shortly thereafter.

Merry 5th day of Christmas! Krisha went to see Zoo Lights at Zoo Knoxville. They are illuminated silk lanterns in the shapes of exotic animals. Krisha especially loved seeing the real-life red pandas. Zoo Knoxville has a nocturnal animal building that houses skunks, raccoons, possums, and owls.

Frank met the new neighbors moving into the house behind him. They have two dogs. He is a little concerned about the dogs barking during the podcast. Krisha is proud of Frank for getting to know his neighbors during these pandemic times.

A raccoon lives in the ceiling above the ladies’ room at Sweet Fanny Adams Theatre. Krisha wants to keep the raccoon as a self-sufficient pet when the theatre permanently closes on New Year’s Eve.

Merry 4th day of Christmas! Krisha & Frank give to you four new episodes this week.

Frank received two hot chocolate bombs from Beautiful Chaos Custom Creations. He and Krisha will enjoy them at the end of the show. Their Facebook page is https://www.facebook.com/BeautifulChaosbyShanna

Krisha & Frank exchange Christmas gifts. Krisha gives Frank an Ultimate Random Trivia Book and a 3D Dino Stone that he can paint with his grandkids. Frank gives Krisha a snow globe with a scene of downtown Knoxville buildings, including the Sunsphere. Frank liked the snow globe so much that he asked his wife to give him one for Christmas. The snow globes are sold at the Knoxville Visitors Center, 301 S. Gay Street.

Jere the Brave heats some milk in a saucepan to pour over the chocolate bombs. When the outer shell melts, miniature marshmallows pop to the surface. They dunk chocolate chip cookies into the delicious hot chocolate before remembering that they are supposed to be doing a show.

Merry Christmas! Krisha & Frank present a little Christmas treat for you and your family.

When Frank Jr. was three years old, he would fall asleep every night listening to Wilford Brimley read “The Night Before Christmas.” It didn’t matter if it was winter, spring, summer, or fall. He memorized the story and Frank recorded him for the 1993 Kevin & Bean comedy Christmas cassette, Santa Claus, Schmanta Claus. We hope you enjoy hearing it!

Merry Christmas Eve! Today we present a replay of the Karns Christmas Parade. The parade organizers invited Krisha & Frank to host their first-ever YouTube livestream of the parade. It allowed spectators to watch from the comfort of home.

The video was streamed live on the new Karns Network YouTube channel. The show was produced by Chris Wade and his audio/visual students in the Byington-Solway CTE program.

Krisha & Frank are asking for more YouTube subscribers. Krisha saw a mashup of “All I Want for Christmas Is You” and “I Will Always Love You” on TikTok. She follows Stephen Sondheim on TikTok. Frank looks online to discover that Sondheim is 90 years old.

A viewer named Doro requested that Krisha & Frank attempt Scottish accents while reading a list of snowplow names. Frank once used his Scottish accent to salvage an improv show after an audience member gave an inappropriate suggestion for a guessing game.

Krisha enjoys watching Siobhan Thompson do different accents from England and Ireland on the Anglophenia YouTube channel. Krisha is reminded that she needs to buy some HP Sauce as a gift. You can order HP Sauce on Amazon at this link: https://amzn.to/34u0eaP

Frank’s friend Bean lives in London and talks about minty biscuits on his podcast. You can order Viscount Mint Cream biscuits from Amazon at this link: https://amzn.to/3phwO7R

If the British word for cookies is biscuits, what would they call a buttermilk biscuit from the South? Krisha’s favorite cookie is Nutter Butter. There used to be a cookie called Fudge Town. Frank loves pfeffernüsse cookies.

Krisha asks Frank about his eyeglasses, which he keeps in the car. Radio sales departments look for opportunities to have their deejays lasered, either for Lasik or for hair removal.

Krisha plans to go on a 30-day social media sabbatical starting January 1. Frank knows two people who were paid by Facebook to stay off the site during the election season. Frank is concerned that Krisha’s friends won’t see links to the podcast during her sabbatical.

Krisha has a friend who used Facebook’s dating service. Krisha experimented with several dating apps, including Facebook Dating. She was immediately swamped with 60 messages from men, most of whom had similar shirtless poses in their profile pictures.

Frank doesn’t follow Instagram accounts that are set to private because he doesn’t want to take the risk that they will say no.

One of Frank’s neighbors has hung a giant red ornament in a gnarled, bent tree. It is reminiscent of Charlie Brown’s Christmas tree.

Frank helped his grandson with an at-home learning assignment. Artie called on FaceTime to read his list of vocabulary words and then look for those items around his house.

Krisha’s kids switched to virtual learning. It’s hard to keep up with the minute-by-minute schedule. A teacher told Frank that they see video games playing in the background during some Zoom calls with students.

Krisha bought a space heater at Lowe’s and was surprised to see so many dogs in the store. When she bought her Christmas tree there, she had to wrap it herself and carry it from the garden center to the main checkout. Krisha wants to put herself through the tree-netting device.

When Frank lived in California, he was surprised to see wooden criss-cross Christmas tree stands like ones on A Charlie Brown Christmas. Krisha hung stockings in her new home for herself and her kids.

A YouTube viewer asked for an update on Avogadro the Avocado plant. Frank stresses Krisha out and then she says something funny to relieve the tension. Krisha took a Praxis test to be a teacher. Frank thinks the name sounds like a mispronunciation.

Krisha is the same age as the “vintage” posters at Sweet Fanny Adams Theatre. When Frank was 40, he went to Alaska and decided he could visit all 50 states by the time he turned 50. Krisha wants to spend a year driving around the country.

Krisha was preparing to go running when she encountered a group of mature women taking a line-dancing class in a parking lot. They invited her to participate. One woman couldn’t believe how easily Krisha learned the steps. Frank can relate because he had to learn new choreography for The Nutcracker in 2019. His “ballet wife” had no trouble learning it and dragging Frank through the new steps.

To celebrate her “old-lady line-dancing” Krisha went to dinner at 4:15 p.m. at Cracker Barrel before going to the “bougie Kroger” at Kingston Pike and Cedar Bluff. Frank had mistakenly thought the “bougie Kroger” was the one where the college girls can be seen “lampshading” after they go to Sun Tan City.
