Krisha & Frank are in their separate homes due to their busy schedules. Krisha has been working a lot at Hatfield & McCoy Dinner Feud.
Frank has sore muscles from doing yard work. He transplanted two fig bushes to places where they should get more sun. He has also been trying to dig up the roots of some unwanted hedge bushes and redbud trees.
Frank put some rocks along part of his property line. He also dug some holes to plant fig cuttings along the property line. He got anxious thinking his neighbor had put up caution tape but it turned out to be forsythia flowers.
Krisha has been very busy at Hatfield & McCoy because all the shows are selling out during Spring Break. Other Pigeon Forge attractions have also reported high attendance.
Krisha is shopping for a car. Some car dealers have assumed she has to ask her husband. Another called her “darling.” She will not purchase anything from those dealers.
Frank’s neighbor has two redbuds that are getting in the way of Frank’s big fig tree. The neighbor said he would cut the trees some day. While talking with Frank on Friday afternoon, the neighbor said let’s do it now! The neighbor told Frank to hold the tree as it fell and push it away from the fence and fig tree. Frank realized it would be safer to get a rope and to pull the tree from the other end of the rope.

Krisha is using a Jameson koozie for her Coke Zero. Frank is reminded of the one time in his life that he drank Jameson whiskey. It was while waiting for the gravediggers to open the correct grave for Frank’s great-uncle Jim after they almost put him in the wrong hole.
Krisha accidentally got rid of all her drinking glasses in the move to her new place. Frank has set up a craft services tray for Krisha in case she gets hungry.
Frank has fig envy. His neighbor has a different breed of fig tree than he does. Frank tasted one of her figs while cat-sitting and then asked his neighbor for a cutting. Although not a cat person, Frank played with the cat next door while his neighbor was out of town. Krisha’s granny once froze a dead pet cat until Krisha’s dad could bury it.
