She's connected his just now. I grew up in pub- though for some reason I thought it was always pretty cool so I grew up in a very traditional Irish home. A group After Church we've been all go to pub- cousins when play the family? Play my family my wife and daughter they think is just obnoxious so they just they hate it. We can't figure out what it is About humanity that causes us to be attracted to and debris with people that find the things we enjoy completely stupid but everyone I know you max.

I know that I can't microwave heating right you are you have a specialized and unique talent and no one in your family appreciates it. But I'll go and we'll play in planning. A couple of sessions wishes music sessions. Planning a couple of sessions a week in the crowd of going nuts. So they're crowded love it. They'll be one hundred people. Two hundred people in POB and everybody would be cheering yelling. But when I go home I geek just to my wife and daughter. It is so on cool and see here. I was thinking. You must've one your wife's heart with that tenor Banjo action in a pub. Chicago but apparently not lord of the Tenor Ben. I tell you what even her that my in laws there. What Dill Kiki? We think it's so cool way cool. It's Bobby Sherry us. The talk back to teach on the free and Sherry APP and leave us a message. Happy Day before Valentine's Day Bob's running a little bit late. He should. He should be here any minute now. so we were just talking with our CO worker double. Am who had has to go to work now. But we made him stay back because during the break he was telling us about what his parents were like and when he was a kid. His Dad would buy a differently. Pos Car every month. And did he liked to fix them up. Was He at Tinker. Now these cars he he would buy. He would never buy a car. That was more expensive than five hundred dollars and they would breakdown than he would. Just buy another one rather than spend any money to fix it was. It's the old school by with cash so it was a fluid neighborhood that we grew up in. So then you would just pull in with this beater and God forbid you enrolled on the windows because the felt would come down from the ceiling and it's like a A parachute in the back. Just mean smoke blown out of it. Oh can you remember? What's the longest one of those cars last? It was in about a month or two and a couple of months. Yeah it was a couple of months. It was so embarrassing when Your Dad would come and pick you up with your friends and pull up in this one after another. Yeah there was this one car that he bought. He bought it for fifty dollars. All right so in when you take a left the steering wheel would only go so far so then he would have to back up and then just key and then dry Ford them. Back up and drive forward and cars would be beeping and it was Bar Fifty Bucks. One door opened in that car and it wasn't the driver's side so he had to get in the back of the front sees. Yeah it was an old plymouth also I have to say I'm super impressed. That for fifty bucks. It had an engine. It ran fine. It just didn't turn so he could turn to the right but not to the left where he couldn't really turn in any direction any direction. Yeah so it was. It was pretty bad. What was your mom's position on all of this? She ignored it I think she ignored it in in the car. Had to get parked in the back of the The the garage. So it's actually the recipe for. I think a happy marriage if you if you are able to ignore.
