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.

Krisha & Frank are recording this week’s shows in Krisha’s living room. Frank says it feels like an “away game” for him.

Krisha changed banks and got a new ATM card. In the process of removing her old card from Amazon, the podcast’s debit card was charged $12 for one of her subscriptions. Meanwhile, Frank saw the errant charge on the bank statement and thought it might be fraudulent. He called the bank but never thought to ask Krisha. She looked at their ledger and saw that Frank had typed “theft” in red, in bold, and in all-caps.

Krisha and her boyfriend had a contest to see who could accumulate the most free pens at area businesses. During the course of a day, they gathered 48 pens.

Frank was brainstorming titles for Friday’s episode and asked his two children for help. He had considered “Puppetry Amigos,” “Puppetry of Life,” and “They Call It Puppet Love.” Meaghan thought of “A Show of Hands,” which became the actual title. Frank Jr. suggested “Puppet… We’ll Do It Live.”

One of Krisha’s co-workers questioned the thumbnail on Saturday’s YouTube episode. It was a screengrab from when Krisha joked that she used moonshine as mouthwash each morning. Frank asked if she was “lying or truthing” and believed her when she said “truthing.”

Frank received a cemetery satisfaction survey in the mail. It has 55 questions about his experience with his mother’s burial. Krisha asks about the word columbarium, which is like a mausoleum for cremated remains.

Frank has other family members in the same area of the national cemetery as his parents. When Frank’s mom was buried, the cemetery engraved a new headstone for both his mom and dad but wouldn’t let him have the old one.

Krisha plans to record a bluegrass version of Alanis Morissette’s Jagged Little Pill. She is dating a musician who will help her with the album.

Frank gave Krisha some of his dried figs when she needed a serving of fiber. They worked faster than expected.

Krisha bought a car that will reliably get her to her job in Pigeon Forge. She starts to describe it in a baby-talk voice. Frank’s great-uncle Bill liked to use baby talk to get laughs. When she was a teenager, Frank’s mom chastised her uncle Bill for using baby talk in front of his children.

Krisha tries to get Frank to use baby talk but he struggles. His children and grandchildren have good diction.

Frank ordered a magic kit as a birthday gift for his grandson Artie. Frank helped him learn one of the tricks while on FaceTime. Artie performed the trick at his birthday party that evening.

Artie’s great-aunts both wanted to give him hand puppets. After some initial confusion, Frank’s daughter got it sorted out.

Frank’s new neighbor has noisy dogs. Frank heard them barking loudly at 12:30 a.m. and was tempted to text the neighbor. What should he do?

Krisha’s sleeve is wet because Frank accidentally dumped the top part of a Brita filter pitcher on her hand and wrist while trying to fill her tea cup.

Krisha & Frank both like Easter candy. When Frank auditioned for a radio job in Knoxville, he did a bit that involved stuffing as many Marshmallow Peeps in his mouth as he could.

Frank received a magazine from a supermarket that had a “recipe” for Peeps s’mores except that they wouldn’t use the word Peeps, instead referring to the product as “sugar-coated chick or bunny marshmallows.”

Krisha made a Facebook post that said “In a relationship… with Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs.” It got lots of comments and reactions. Krisha likes the ratio of chocolate to peanut butter in the eggs better than in standard peanut butter cups.

Krisha likes to shop in the “old-people candy section” at the drugstore. She gets spearmint leaves, orange slices, and other candies.

Frank’s mother’s cousin sent a nice message to Krisha & Frank via Facebook. The message arrived one evening after Frank had been working in the yard and had decided to offer up his physical discomfort for the souls of the dead, especially his father.

Cousin Bill’s message mentioned that Frank’s dad always said he was proud of Frank, which came as a surprise. Frank forwarded the message to his sisters, one of whom questioned Frank’s thought that their dad might be in purgatory.

Krisha & Frank coincidentally made vaccine appointments within 45 minutes of each other at the same location. They decided to carpool but Krisha realized that if she was in the passenger seat, her right arm would get the shot. She surprised Frank by climbing into the back seat and sitting behind him.

Krisha gets anxiety about things she can’t control. She worried about the slight possibility of having an allergic reaction. Frank tried to calm her by saying that he had an epi-pen somewhere in the house and that he could use it on her if need be.

Krisha took six selfies in the car during the 15 minute waiting period after the shot. Frank said it seemed like she took twelve. Another person at the clinic seemed to have a reaction to the shot, which caused a delay. Fortunately, the person seemed to be okay after the paramedics arrived.

Krisha wants to buy some slippers and decides there should be a store called Slipper Barn. In fact all stores should be some type of Barn.

A few weeks ago, Krisha added Frank to the emergency contacts on her phone. She was at a restaurant when her phone started acting weird. The phone sent an emergency message to the four people on Krisha’s list, including Frank and the friend with whom Krisha was having lunch.

The phone sent two photos and an audio message to Krisha’s emergency contacts. Other than the friend who was with her, the emergency contacts checked in with Krisha to make sure she was alright. One friend was especially concerned and needed to be reassured.

It’s T.A.C.O. Tuesday when Krisha & Frank Talk About Content Out of a basket. Today’s topic is: “What is your bug-out plan for the apocalypse?” They decide to focus on a sci-fi movie type of apocalypse instead of a Biblical apocalypse or a zombie apocalypse.

Krisha doubts she would survive an apocalypse like the ones in asteroid movies. She has looked up the radiation zones based on distance from Oak Ridge National Lab. Frank recalls the movie Blast from the Past which was about a family with a fallout shelter.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Krisha & Frank practice their Irish accents. Frank says his Irish brogue got better by listening to his friend Fr. Michael Woods. Frank and his wife Jere visited Fr. Michael’s hometown in Ireland where they met Fr. Michael’s brother Kevin, who is a self-proclaimed leprechaun whisperer.

Frank and Jere visited the leprechaun cavern at the Shalom B&B in Carlingford. Kevin starts the tour by warning the group that everything he tells them will be a lie but they eat it up anyway. Here is the website: http://www.thelastleprechaunsofireland.com/

Krisha had a mishap at the mall. She was lost in thought on the escalator and face-planted when she reached the top. Frank gets an uncomfortable feeling as Krisha describes falling. Krisha accidentally licked a finger after using that hand to rub on some muscle liniment.

Krisha forgot to bring an on-camera outfit to work. Frank looked in his son’s old bedroom and found a child’s medium jacket for Krisha to wear. He also looked in his own closet and found a Brooks Brothers shirt he’s never worn.

Frank’s new neighbor has two dogs that bark a lot while on a trolley leash. The neighbor plans to fence in the yard so the dogs can roam. Frank struck up a conversation with a surveyor who was marking the property line.

Krisha suggests that Frank buy an ultrasonic remote to push every time the dogs bark. There are several on Amazon, including the Zomma Anti Barking Device that you can see here: https://amzn.to/3l8iMo4. Frank gets hung up trying to figure out the diagonal of his pool using the formula a squared + b squared = c squared.

Krisha jokes that the remote might backfire and cause her to have a seizure or cause Frank to have a stroke or cause Frank’s wife to bark. Frank tells how Jere can be easily hypnotized. One time she fell under hypnosis while in the audience of a hypnotism show.

Krisha doesn’t believe in hypnosis. She recognized some actor friends who were paid to pretend they were hypnotized at a show on the midway of the fair.

There was an intern at KROQ named Big Tad who seemed to be very easily hypnotized. Hypnotist Tom Silver once re-hypnotized Tad over the phone.

Krisha invited her Facebook friends to like the Krisha & Frank page. Frank invited 250 of the same people several months ago but many of them have responded to Krisha’s invitation instead.

Krisha was obsessed with radio as a teen. She would record songs on her boombox during Toddzilla’s “Star Wars” feature. She eventually got a board-op job at a local station.

Frank used to get angry blog comments from a radio listener. Another of Frank’s regular listeners made a comment that was misinterpreted as a threat against a co-worker.

Krisha had fans who sent homemade food, which made her uncomfortable. Frank points out that broadcasters already get too much food from advertisers and other restaurants trying to get a free plug.

It’s T.A.C.O. (Talk About Content Out) of a Basket Tuesday. The topic chosen at random is “What is the first hard lesson you remember learning?”

Frank remembers going to a New York Mets game with his dad. There was a funny moment when a busty woman drew attention in the stands. Frank’s dad asked him to tell the anecdote at a dinner party. Frank bombed trying to tell the story and learned a hard lesson about comedic timing.

Frank realized that this podcast launched on September 21, which is the date mentioned in Earth Wind & Fire’s song “September.” Take that other podcasters!
