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.

Frank mentions the Californians as an excuse to hear Krisha’s California accent. His new neighbor has had the property line surveyed in order to install a new fence for his dogs.

Next-door neighbor Nancy spotted a bird that made a hole in the wood siding on Frank’s house. Frank thinks there might be two different birds that have turned his house into their birdhouse.

Frank contacted a home improvement contractor. The guy said Frank’s name seemed familiar. Frank responded that his wife Jere was the singer at the funeral for the contractor’s mother.

Krisha went to a bar to play trivia. She sat near a well-dressed older woman who was not playing the trivia game. An attractive waitress with a full sleeve tattoo on one arm came to take drink orders. The older woman asked the waitress, “Why do you have all of those?”

Krisha has several tattoos but thinks she might be done. One exception is to make good on an old promise to get a Stormtrooper on her rear if her friend remembers the promise and pays for the tattoo.

Krisha & Frank went to Alewine Pottery in Gatlinburg for tomorrow’s See More Smokies video. Robert Alewine liked Krisha’s calm energy as she learned to make a bowl.

While they were driving to Gatlinburg, Krisha & Frank were talking about radio station playlists. Frank says it’s more efficient to look online and read the playlist of two hours worth of songs in a few seconds. Krisha relates it to Frank reading about Groundhog Day on IMDB instead of just enjoying the movie.

Frank confesses to making a Spotify playlist of songs that he likes without ever taking the time to listen to it. Krisha makes playlists every week and listens to music almost all the time. Frank wants to make a playlist that cuts out the middle parts of songs.

Frank got a voicemail from an elderly relative who said “my bladder is ever so close to my eyeballs.” She was calling in reaction to reading a copy of Frank’s eulogy for his mother. Several of his parents’ friends wrote letters after reading the eulogy.

Frank’s wife Jere returns home from shopping but seems to be waiting in the garage for the episode to end. Frank starts to worry that she will get cold.

Krisha & Frank went to the funeral for Bill Slayden, a founding member of Einstein Simplified. Krisha had planned on paying her respects at the visitation and leaving before the service. Frank and his wife planned on staying for the whole thing. There were seven comedy improvisers in attendance and they all sat together and joked about having enough people to put on a show. Their friend Dave said that Frank “has no chill.”

Krisha started getting emotional during the eulogies. Frank said he had a great time. Dave said the people behind the comedians moved to other seats. Frank points out that Dave’s time on the phone with Krisha & Frank is the most he has heard of the podcast.

Krisha felt sorry for Frank’s wife because she had to put up with the joking by all the improvisers who hadn’t seen each other since March. Krisha says their joke level was turned up to 11 and that they were using comedy to numb their emotions.

Krisha went home from the funeral, cooked comfort food, and binge-watched The Queen’s Gambit. Frank got an email from his mom’s church congratulating him on how well he organized her funeral. Krisha would be willing to work at a funeral home. Frank imagines a “Brook & Murphy” funeral business.

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.

Krisha is tired. It seems she is as busy as Frank used to be. Krisha’s friend said her nose ring is “gilding the lily.” She is house-sitting and dog-sitting for that friend. Krisha is moving this week. When she moved as a child, her family used the flower van from the funeral home where Krisha’s parents worked. She has fond memories of roller-skating in the basement of the funeral home.

Frank ended up planning his mother’s funeral and being the emcee for her wake. As he was speaking, his grandsons decided to join Frank at the podium.

Frank got a burpee-like workout while trying on shoes. You have to sit on the floor to change shoes and then stand up to walk in them.

Today’s commercial is for BoneZones.com the website for merchandise signed by Dr. Bill Bass, founder of the Body Farm. BoneZones.com will also have the schedule for Dr. Bass when his lectures can resume.
