Krisha fell backstage and had to go to a walk-in clinic to get treated. Frank’s wife, Jere the Brave, filled in as today’s guest co-host. Regis Philbin’s wife used to fill in for Kathie Lee and Kelly.

Frank needed a cup of coffee before recording today’s show. He had saved packets of coffee from motel rooms over the years. He soaked a coffee packet in hot water like you would with a teabag.

East Tennessee PBS Scholars’ Bowl 2021 premieres at 5:30 p.m. on Monday, May 10. Frank will be on “Live at Five at Four” on WBIR-TV today to promote Scholars’ Bowl. He will be on live from their outdoor weather porch.

On Friday, Frank recorded Zoom interviews with WATE-TV in Knoxville and WJHL-TV in Johnson City. He downloaded the WJHL app and tried to make a screen recording of the newscast while he was having dinner at a restaurant with Jere and another couple.

Jere was surprised to receive a hydrangea plant for Mother’s Day. Their kids thought about ordering the gift online but decided instead to send money to Frank via PayPal and have him buy the plant and an Amazon gift card. Frank bought the gifts on Friday but tried to hide the PayPal transfer from Jere until Monday.

Jere and Frank were about to do some work in the yard when their neighbor Ted asked them to look at his hydrangea tree, which has weeds and honeysuckle growing in the middle of it. Ted said he started to cut the weeds but was forced to stop due to allergies. Frank says that Ted used the old Tom Sawyer trick on Frank and Jere.
