The passing of my Mimi Dorothy

Dorothy Maxine Lambie Avery, the last of my grandparents, passed away yesterday evening at the age of 93 in Lexington, Kentucky, not terribly far from where I was was born 50 years ago, and where she lived for most of her adult life. She was one of my favorite people in the entire world, and […]

You no longer have to take the word of the textbooks, this is what Prehensile Monkey-tailed Skink was actually like

The episode where Pete Larson flies in from Kenya to announce his rebirth as a Mississippi bluesman, we trade a Suzanne Somers “three way” poncho for eight bottles of cheap wine, and one of my guests tells me that she’s posed nude for Playboy… The Saturday Six Pack #13

I’ve complained recently that we haven’t been getting a lot of calls during the show. Well, apparently all of that complaining has paid off. The phone didn’t stop ringing this episode.
