"Area. So like on my Chevy blazer, it displays each wheel's tire pressure. I could go around with the hand device too, but I mean, so if it says 34 is the recommended pressure for my tire. And it's sitting at 31, put three more pounds in there, right? Three to 5 higher than the 34 is about average, what you want to do for winter, winter driving conditions for optimal traction. Wait a minute, you said three to 5 higher than the third. Keep it a little bit higher during the winter months. Really? Wait a minute. So if the manufacturers recommended pressure is X, you say actually put a little more air in there than X? Yeah, slightly more because when we get the extreme cold, the air is going to contract a little bit and your tire pressure is going to go down a little bit and that's why you're still at the optimal operating. Pressures. I'm worried that I'm going to pop the tires someday that I put too much air in that. Does that ever happen? No, three to 5 pounds higher? No. Very rarely, does that happen? I'll be asking more stupid questions is this interview goes on, but just bear with me, and then you never put a lot of extra air in a tire in order to make it Tom. Understood. So then I also thought though that a little less tire pressure would get you better traction. Now, you want to stay with what the tire and the automaker manufacturer recommends retire pressure efforts. And then you got it. And then they used to sell snow tires all the time on the radio and TV. All tires good enough now, or is there such a thing as a snow tire? There are still snow tires out there, but most tires nowadays are all season tires. So I don't really need to have another set. And if I'm changing out here in Illinois, if I get a new set of tires, I don't need to specifically shop for that. I'm not in Alaska, right? No, just get a good name brand all season tire and maybe more than sufficient in this area. What are people paying for tires these days? What is a set of radials cost me? You can go anywhere from probably $400 up to $1500, depending on the tire, the size, should I change out the antifreeze in the radiator? Is there a different fluid you should have in there for winter than summer? Or is antifreeze antifreeze? Antifreeze is meant for winter and summer driving conditions altogether manufacturers recommend mostly every 5 years. If you have a question, three one two 9 8 one 7 200. We're just talking a little bit about things you might have been afraid to ask with Chris. He's the service manager at Jerry haggerty Chevy and Glenn Ellen. What about the oil? Here again, it seemed to be like you would have a different weight oil in the winter than the summer or is it all one blend now? Most manufacturers are using full synthetic oil and you do not need to change those gases. They ask me questions about what kind of oil I want sometimes, like I have a favorite flavor. I never know how to answer that question. Like I said, most require synthetic oil. It is on every oil cap, what viscosity and what recommended oils to be used on the vehicle. Yeah. Right. Okay. And then what else was I going to ask you about? Are there other things that people do so, you don't have to do anything with the radiator, the oil is the oil. That's good news. Maybe a little more tire pressure in the tires than you would normally have because when the cold air comes, it'll contract. And that'll get you back to maybe optimal. Any other ideas for get my car winter ready? Typically recommend tire pressure checks every 30 days or so. For optimal pressures, check wiper blades. Obviously, for visual, make sure all your lights are working properly. And the biggest partners keep the car clean, you don't want any snow nice build up inside the wheels. Do you let your car warm up before you start driving it to get the fluids going or does that really matter? Typically, a couple of minutes would be probably optimal for us. To keep it up to bar. Oh, we have to keep it up to par, but I mean, say I'm like today. I got up, I got in my car, I drove off. I'm not letting it warm up. Of course it was like 45° this morning. Say it was 15°. I let my cars warm up for two to three minutes before I leave. If it's that cold outside? Let's talk to a Don. You've got a question for Chris. What can we do for you, Don? You're on the air. Oh, king John, how are you doing today? My question is this. So I've got a Chevy Silverado 1500 and the tire pressure thing on the doors does inflate the 35, but the sidewall of the tires, they inflate the 45. Why is it different? And which one should I be airing it up to? Typically stay with the manufacturers for the tire pressures on there. That's for optimal traction on the vehicle. Those tire pressures that are on the tires, that's the maximum pressure that you're allowable to put in the tires. So 35 on the door or 45 on the tire, which one does he do? On the door. On the door of the 35, Don good question, thanks for the call. And one more quick one here. Hey guys, my husband likes to rev the engine in the winter. He says it warms the car up faster. Warms the car up. I wonder if they mean the interior of the car. What do you think about that? Well, revenue up not going to do anybody any good. Warm up the coolant temperature sooner so you have heat center, absolutely. Not recommended though. Wait a minute. So it will heat up the interior quicker, but you don't think we should do that? No, it'll raise the engine cooling temperature. That's what provides the heat. So it won't work. So wait a minute, so revving the engine will warm up the interior quicker, right? Correct. But it's also going to cause excessive fuel consumption. Excessive wear and tear on the engine itself. Okay. I got it then. Hey, Chris, I'm probably going to call you again in another week when I think of four or 5 more questions, but this has been a good start. Thanks for your help today. Thank you. We're always here to help. That's Chris casault. He's the service manager at Jerry haggerty Chevy, and Glenn Ellen.

"The ad council. Almost ran out of gas yesterday. Brendan and I drove to Matheson state park. Have you been to Matheson state park? Near star rock state park, which is out by Ottawa. We spend a lot of time out there. And so after the show, we went for a drive. I did my show from our home out there yesterday. And so Brenda said, I hear they have this sunflower exhibit. They have at Matheson state park. Acres of giant, you know, like the ten foot tall sunflowers, and the sun flowers themselves are the size of garbage can lids, and there's just acres of them. And you go to the park and you walk through just a short little field, maybe 50 yards or so, and there you are in this sunflower heaven, and then there's a little path through there. And you can just walk amongst the flowers. And it's just the most scenic opportunity for a picture. A lot of people were positioning their kids. Of course, the flowers are taller than most kids. And if you're a tall blond, you will lose you in there, but I'm telling you, it's like it's a scene that you just go, wow, I am standing in this. So we're driving out there. And all of a sudden, my dashboard in my Chevy blazer from Jerry haggerty Chevrolet went Bing Bing Bing, Brenda looks at it and goes John because I guess it's my responsibility to pay attention to the gas in my car. So I go, well, the thing says like 67 miles. You have 67 miles of range. Here's what I don't know. Is that really 67 miles? Or is that 66 miles? Those dashboards make us dumber now, or less responsible. It's almost like, no, this is to make sure you never run out of gas. I'm not sure it doesn't, in fact, better enable you to run out of gas because I got her down to 35 and I was still feeling pretty good about my chances. And then it just stopped saying low fuel low fuel low fuel. And then it put up another warning. Forget exactly what the wording was, but the thrust of it was, okay, you're on your own now, Bucky. We are not responsible for what happens after this. That was the flashing light on my dashboard. But I didn't know how much gas I had left. I thought maybe we could still give her a go. Go with a little bit longer. I knew that if I'd run out of gas in the heat yesterday, on a country road in the south county, we would have to get a divorce. So I found the nearest route to a gas station. I thought I was going to run out of gas pulling up. I don't know when the last time is you ran out of gas. That's not something we do anymore. But at the prices they are now. And not everybody has a car that coaxes you in like that. Maybe it still happens. There was a guy in Kansas who ran out of gas yesterday, and he was flying a plane. He landed on an interstate, and they wrote him a ticket for running out of gas and flying while intoxicated. He had come up from Florida, and he was kind of like, well, it's like a place to land there, and he landed on the highway. Is that the one on I 70 near Kansas City? Yes. Right now the gas ran out of gas. Okay, so in an airplane, flying while intoxicated or if he's on a highway as he driving while I'm talking. I think that's what they must have got him for because I don't know that there's an F wi. I mean, neither is good idea. John, that low gas warning on your dashboard. I don't believe takes into account if you're using the AC or how fast you're going, things go quicker if you are doing that on your guess. Yeah, no kidding. Well, that was a thing too. So now my dashboard is blinking your fool. This is on you. Don't come crying to us if you run out of gas now, fella. We've been warning you for a while. That was with the light said. And we had the air on because it was warm. And I thought, well, I know that turning the air off will get us better gas mileage. You might get us to a gas station. But here again, if I turn the air off, we would have to get a divorce. And Brendan and I get along, she likes me a lot, and I like her, but that would be a deal breaker. So I just, so I just prayed to the little plastic Jesus on my dashboard that we would make it there with the air on and by golly we did. Did it still tell you how many miles you had left to empty? The plastic Jesus or no gauge. Well, no, no. No, then it goes to it was like 38, 35. And it's one light blinking low, low, low. And then the thing went goodbye. And it was just a wording that said something like, boy, are you stupid? That's all it said. And now it's like there was no numbers, no countdown. So at any minute you're gonna run out of gas, they're on the country roads. In the middle of a cornfield endless el county. John, you should fill up when you have half a tank left. Really, do you think that would help? Don't let your fuel pump run dry ever since the lead was taken out of gasoline, the lead was a lubricant for the fuel pump. Susan, you're on WG on radio. What can I do for you? Good morning. I just wanted to tell you this funny story that happened to us while we were in Alaska last summer. So we were in Denali national park at state overnight, three nights in an RV, which we rented. We had never drove an RV before and never had been in an RV before. And our RV tank had a quarter of a tank as we left Denali. So we thought, well, we'll drive a little bit and we'll find a gas station. We drove a 120 miles before we were going to see a gas station. We had all these ideas of what we were going to do when we were stuck on the side of the road. We live off the land. And as we're driving towards this gas station, I have my fingers and toes crossed. I'm hoping you don't have to push this RV to where we need to go, but we did post on fumes into the gas station and filled it all the way up so much though that in Alaska, when you fill up a car, you can only fill it up a $100. You can't fill it up anymore because they don't want you to deplete Bill gas station. And that was when gas in Alaska was $3 and 20 cents a gallon. So it had no gas in it at all. That was a lot of gas. Well, there's gas stations here right here in America that are doing that now. You got to get out of different credit card if you run your credit card again. Some stations are cutting folks off at a hundred bucks

chief engineer do you know like wind literally does the odometer roll past a hundred here I have no idea Thank you Wow Wow that's the kind of candor I wasn't expecting from you sir Yeah I just probably sometime in the evening Bill Murdock Chief engineer and Dave marzulo is our unofficial historian according to the tribune Actually I agree with that I think if anybody at this building you do a lot of digital stuff for us Dave What's your exact title digital director Web producer or something like that digital content But you've been here as long as any of us and you've been just a great documentarian of the radio station over the years Dave marzulo Bill Murdock Steve Bertrand and the studio so I'm and it was nice to see you in the TV special We've all had a chance to look at it now at 7 o'clock tonight on channel 9 How do you think you did I think the special is really good It's tough to try to get a hundred years down to 45 minutes Yeah think about that How many hours of interviews did you do Steve I think we probably talked to 20 people and they were the interviews were anywhere from 30 45 minutes to an hour Who is the longest Lewis Hulu yeah Well Luke kept telling me what questions asked Here's an idea Here's what you should do Here's what you should do You know I was thinking about that because Lou manfredini appears in the special tonight are mister fix it and I was thinking you could do an hour on the Lou manfredini story He's an amazing personal story he's an amazing professional story and he's just he's a good talker He's a good show So you know every time loop pops up I thought oh we need more Lou here but we only got 42 minutes right Dave So you just don't have that much time So that's 45 minutes and there's just no way you could give anything the attention it deserves so it's kind of a you know it talks about a few different stories but it has a good job And no one's going to be you know if you're looking for something some things will be in there And you know we're going to cover a lot of stuff We're going to take a lot of the footage that was shot and repackaged and put it on the website Oh no kidding Oh that's interesting So some of the interviews will be up there longer versions and things like that If the story took three minutes to tell we couldn't spend three minutes of 45 on the special but we'll take that and we'll But Steve is the lead interviewer so the show opens with Steve Bertrand talking about what it was like talking to all of these people and then every now and then when you see an interview of Dave editor me or somebody talking we're always talking to Steve Steve not usually in the camera frame then but this was sort of Steve's brain tweaking all of us to tell our stories Well I just asked the questions I mean yeah I just was doing the interviews And did you have to interview Bill Murdoch our chief engineer as well I did It was a pleasure He's right here What was surprised when I saw the show it became the bill Murdock show out at the transmitter which was Oh my gosh It's a little comic relief there And some of us are going I don't know that about the transmitter You know people that have been in this business for decades didn't know that there was an underground radiation We've got a bunker there You got some regular bomb shelter and everything I spent the night there in Y two K because with a couple of engineers Ed Wilk and JC two that have been New Year's Day with on 1999 Yeah because remember there was concern that everything might go off the air So we thought it was going to rain Chinese airplanes We thought that at Y two K hit and all the computers and everything digital did not anticipate turning over two zero zero zero and everything was going to go haywire So people like you were sent to radio station transmitters And when you see those bunk beds in the transmitter I slept in one of those With a couple of engineers and we watched the fireworks over in Elk road village for New Year's Eve But the beginning of the documentary then sort of tells the story of Chicago radio and radio in general and Bill you kind of shined on some of that because you knew the sort of early days and how radio stations work Sure I guess I'm supposed to give it a longer answer huh Yeah Engineers that were kind of driving it from the beginning And then after that they figured out a way to monetize it And then from being an experimental thing To being a real it's funny You mentioned that because it's so obvious now you talk or play records and people buy advertising and you say go to Jerry haggerty Chevrolet and that's the business model that it wasn't so clear then how people would use it or what you would put on the air And I remember seeing some old ads for WGN radio like they would show people sitting at a card table all listening to the radio and the radio program was how to play bridge They would give you I have some directories that they would give you take home books for piano lessons and they gave piano lessons on WG and radio you'd go to the store and.

"Now we talk sports and sports wagering with Sam on Thursdays at this time. Hey, Sam, are you there? I'm not hearing my Sam. So I get a funny circle there. LF let me try and hit it up and see if it works now. Hey, Sam, are you there? I'm here. No, I'm sorry. I'm still trying to recover from one of the largest upsets we've ever seen in wagering. What was that? You getting a Chevy Silverado? You didn't see that coming, huh? What do you keep in the back books and red wine. I said that now that I have this Chevy Silverado, which is just so Tough. I'm thinking about buying a cow. I could drive the cow around or I could have the cow in a field and then I could do some ranch and stuff and then get back in the Silverado and drive around. I feel I feel just a little more authentic and masculine now. Little taller. See if it was if you wanted me to make odds, And I think you learned this next last week when we were talking about your move, and I made lines on city suburbs, like if you would have asked me to make odd done, Who will get the Silverado next? Man Frattini's minus 50,000, You know, he's He's people. Substantial favorite. Yeah. Oh, and there I am, with my books and fancy wine and all my culture. Um, I went over to Jerry Haggerty yesterday. And so there I've been wanting to pick him up truck for a long time. Brenda likes to go to junk stores and State sales and buy chairs, and I'm just going to put it in the back and with the cow and drive around. That's awesome, man. I'm happy for you. Did you watch the the hot dog eating contest? I know you're a big fan. I hate the No. I'll stop talking. Say whatever you want about the hot dog eating contest the Nathan's hot dog eating contest. So Joey Chestnut's not the 14 time champion. You knew he was going to win 14 times He's won the event, but they always put up a number on how many hot dogs he's going to eat. And you can bet on this so the number was 73 a half Tell me how about five minutes in the television feed on ESPN goes completely out. For two whole minutes. This feed is out. They come back. They figure it out all of a sudden testament that like 65 hot dogs. So you missed two minutes of action. He eventually gets over the number. He winds up eating 76. But did he Because I didn't see it? Yeah. That's right. A lot of money is on the line there. Do people actually bet on that, then Sam. It's one of the most popular events of the summer. Now mind you Most summers. We don't have the National Basketball Association or the national hockey Legal schedules have been pushed out a bit because of the pandemic. Usually it's just baseball. So there's not really a lot to wager on in the summer, and especially at that time on fourth of July, So yeah, it's a very popular event. I know that. You know, tens of thousands of dollars were exchanged if he goes over or under. Either way, more people had the under. So it was good for the books. But imagine having like 50 bucks on that, and the feed goes out and they come back and just tell you Oh, yeah, You're a loser. I just couldn't believe that ESPN started to cover that thing. Not that they're perfect or that I'm so pure, but really ESPN, you're going to cover a hot dog eating contest. They've covered a lot worse, buddy. Oh, you're talking about the Cubs now, So you sent me a text yesterday before the Cubs game going to the toast. It's over. And then the Cubs One a baseball game yesterday. I don't know if you're aware of that. Yeah, they were do they lost 11 in a row? I am aware of that. And so we asked our listeners. We said Okay, So is it over for the Cubs in seven out of 10 said Yes, but 30% of our listeners said No. The Cubs still gotta shot. How would you vote on that? Would vote. No, but I mean, if we're being transparent, I've told you all season long this team was was going to bust. It was a matter of time, so I would have voted No from the get going. It's ironic because Two weeks ago were on your show. And you're like, Hey, man, Cubs are in first place. You're like my brother thinks they should buy And I think at that point in time. Sure you have to But I've learned covering baseball for many years. You know about a decade now. You can't tell what a team is all about until about July one. That's the true test. That's the litmus test and tell me how two weeks ago were on the air there in first place today, two weeks later, they're almost nine games out that's crushing. You don't come back from that. Do you think that the what you just said, is because injuries in this the toll of the season starts to Or luck, guys get hot, but you're not going to stay hot or healthy that long, So everybody deals with injuries, So I'm not going to say it's injuries. Everybody deals with that. It's part of the game. The White Sox are the most injured team in baseball, and they're 15 games over 500, so I don't I don't want to hear about injuries. I think the larger the sample size, the easier it is to understand what's up. If a team you know 10 games into a season, the team goes eight and two. You're like, Wow, This team's amazing. We'll push it up to 80 games. Push it out to 90 games. There's more truth. The bigger the sample size, and for years, this team has been unable to develop pitching. Even when they won the World Series King John they sign Jon Lester..

90 games Jon Lester Sam White Sox 30% 15 games 76 14 times Joey Chestnut 10 games Brenda 14 time Cubs two eight 65 hot dogs fourth of July 50 bucks yesterday Thursdays

Hi, It's John Williams I mentioned earlier in the show. I got that Chevy Silverado from Jerry Haggerty and someone texted in and said, doesn't have a CD player. Last vehicle I bought relatively new did not, and I was shocked and disappointed. I literally had a CD in my hand and was sticking it in the air conditioning events, hoping that one of them would take the C D. Until I discovered that a lot of new cars don't have CD players. I don't know if this one does Maybe not. Did hear Bob Sarah talk this morning about I think it was General Motors is producing new vehicles, and some of them will specifically have CD players in them. He likes to listen to CDs to Bob wants cassette players in cars as well, That's not gonna happen. But CDs. Yeah, those could still go. Come on. About weddings were talking about how many young people are being asked to go to weddings this year because none last year John, A close friend of mine was throwing a baby shower for her son and wife. I was so thankful not to be invited. John, my son in law. No, My son is in five weddings. My daughter in law is in three plus your own. Other son will only be in his own. What about this? Hey, John Williams. My friend went to a June 19th wedding. With guests from all over the country. 20 people now have covid and counting both the vaccine and the unvaccinated who are the sickest so vaccinated people at the wedding got sick and unvaccinated people got even sicker. Funny and county didn't say how many people were at that wedding. I'm going to guess I'm going to hope it was a large crowd. Hey, John. There was a time in the early nineties that we attended 10 weddings in one year. That was a lot, thankfully. They were all locals, so I didn't have airline costs. But for a young couple, it was a bit much, but we attended all 10 weddings, says Brenda. My Brenda reminds me that we just didn't do bachelor parties and bachelorette parties. I don't know if that was a function of the time or the money we all had, or just the groups that we ran with. But that just wasn't part of the deal. And now not only do you have the wedding and you have the bachelor party in the bachelorette party, and then you have the engagement thing. Where everybody gets together and you actually get engaged, and they all have some cocktails. It's a lot these days. Wanted to go back to that best and worst states to retire in for 2021. This is a bankrate story based on affordability, wellness, culture, weather and crime. And Illinois, as you may have heard is the 38th best place out of 50. That's not good. Only the 12 states are worse than us to retire in Louisiana's worse. Washington State of Washington, Connecticut, Idaho, Alabama, Arkansas, Maine, Alaska, Montana. Kansas, Minnesota and Maryland are the worst states to retire in Maryland and Minnesota. Overall, 49th and 50th I gotta say everything is relative, right? I lived in Minnesota for eight years in 24 year stints. And I had a terrific time there. The weather is what it is, but it's not that different than it is in Milwaukee or Chicago. Ours. Ours is different for sure. But it's a northern Midwest climb. And Minnesota does a lot of things, right? Economically and even with respect to the weather, they embrace it. They don't curse it. They have outdoor skating rings, and they have outdoor leagues and they just skate and snow and sure should do things because they get more snow and more cold. They can Maybe it's almost better to have a little more longer cold so you can at least do something with it. Ours is kind of the imperfect medium. Minnesota 49th best place to retire in affordability. Rank is 39 wellness rank. It's a healthy state 15th. Culture 34 whether 35 in crime 17. But Illinois's numbers just almost don't make sense to me if we're the 38th. Best or worst state to retire him. Affordability Here is 34th. Vicki thinks it should be. 2016 states are even worse to retire in. 25th place right in the middle for crime, which is kind of a head scratcher. And somebody said, Well, it's a big state. You've got all of the people downstate. But there aren't that many people. Really as goes Chicago. So goes the state. I don't know how it is that we're lucky enough to be in 25th place. The wellness rankers 13th. The culture rank is 26. That makes no sense. I would put the culture in Chicago. Which is the state for my money. Come on in the top 10. Chicago is an international city. The architecture, etcetera, etcetera. The weather rank is 30th. Weather rank Here is 30th just a couple of other notes. As for affordability, the least affordable state to retire to his Hawaii. California's number 48 Maryland is a 47. I got 49 around here somewhere. You want to round them out? The some of them are tied to some of these numbers. Repeat, um, as far as affordable ability goes, Tennessee's number one Missouri's three Georges three, Indiana is seven. How about that? Wellness ranked 41 boy, You move up the line. If you'd get a little healthier over there at the culture Rankin, Indiana's 45th, and then their weather is 20th. And their crime rank is 22nd, Wisconsin, You are 30th for affordability. You are 25th for wellness 17th for culture. See, that just makes no sense. How? How is Wisconsin 17 for culture? Love you, Wisconsin in Illinois is 26 if you said for culture How in the world can you tell me that Wisconsin has better culture? Whatever That means. I don't know if that means opera or diversity of populations or just lots of things to do. How does Wisconsin have a richer culture than Illinois makes no sense. Anyway, That's where they put it. And at least you do see a trend that does make sense where it is least where it is most affordable, least expensive. That's the place you want to retire to. So Georgia, Florida, Tennessee, Missouri and Mass are the most the best states retired to not just affordable, but overall, It's Florida, Tennessee. And Missouri are the Big three. It's 10 43 San Panayotovich talks about sports and wagering and sometimes sports wagering. Okay. He wants to talk about the Cubs and the White Sox. He wants to talk about college football will be talkin NFL a little bit these days, and also Nathan's hot dog eating contest, which I do not want to talk about. Chicago was very long double it. If you've got an insurance question, you could talk to your nana. But she'd probably just tell you how she ensured her couch from stains by covering it with.

"Just make sure you choose guilty. I thought we'd be getting lit up with phone calls from people who Were telling me about all the bachelor parties and bachelorette parties. They're going to. I have one if you wanna are you looking forward to this? Mm. I love the person that is being thrown for and I'm actually the one organizing it along with one other person. And even you aren't thrilled about Yeah, it's just not my thing like the whole bachelorette masquerade. It's not my thing. You'll all be wearing the same T shirts with God, no headgear and pants and you'll be walking around Chicago. That's probably what she wants. I didn't even think about that. L if that's what you gotta do. You know, uh, Zoey's big girl weekend or whatever it is, Yeah. Future, Mrs blah, blah, blah. Um, so I'm happy that she's going to be happy for her weekend, but How many weddings are you going to this year? Just one. Thank God. That I know of so far. Um, what do you think The average cost is for a person for a bachelorette weekend? Lot. I mean, I can tell you because I know. Is it over $1000? It's just around there. Yeah. Which isn't bad. I mean, because that must be all of you in Chicago, then right, Or are you going somewhere for that? We're going to a Lake house in Wisconsin. Yeah, And I think that's that's that's a pretty good way to go. Yeah, I would say so, too, because then you have your you have your freedom. It's an Airbnb type of situation and you get to split the cost. Yeah, it's not everybody getting their own hotel rooms, although I don't know maybe the cost split is about the same as a hotel room, but That's at least you can find the damage and the cost to that one place. You ladies are probably going to tear it up, too, Huh? Break furniture windows get knocked out. Absolutely. You know me so well, how many people are going to be at this thing? Nine, okay. When is that going to be? It's in the beginning of August. It's the weekend before I leave for going way out of town coming up. Yeah, And so it's like, literally I get back from there the day before I fly, so at the timing isn't perfect for you. Is that what you're saying? Partly my fault, but, um, but I mean, you are on the deciding end of both of those things. Well, it's just the fact that like I have to remember that I have this weekend and I almost forgot about it. Almost forgot about it when I was planning my trip 10 weddings, seven weddings, eight Weddings, 10 weddings, 11 weddings this weekend, and I I I I'm sure that the reason that's happened, it's just because for the last year plus nobody was going to get married. Everybody then delays it to this year and Then you're strapped to find a venue or a DJ. The costs go up, and I was just talking to my new best friend Jerry Haggerty and Jerry Haggerty Chevy. He was telling me about how that's what his daughter did. She had to delay the wedding to this year. And so then they finally pick out the day and they finally decided to get married. And that is the weekend of the great deluge of 2021 it rain like cats and dogs, and suddenly, the backyard wedding is a swamp. And you think can't we just catch a break here? Then they threw the hoo ha and the At the dealership. And so now we've got to scramble to turn this indoor venue into a place that looks appropriate. And so he called somebody And I said, Hey, listen, You got to give me some help on this because it's raining. We got to get things going and the guy said you know what I got about 50 other people that are in the very same boat. So the services are strapped and everybody's trying to get them done this year. And if you're one of them, you at least have some company. At the end of the Washington Post piece. It says still, for the unmarried among them, 2021 wedding season has imparted its fair share of lessons. Tressler, one of the people going to a lot of weddings, for one says when he gets married. Make sure to pick a location that's convenient for the majority of his guests. Star, meanwhile, may just opt out of the vaunted tradition of a big blown out wedding day. Whenever it happens, she says. I'm like, Wouldn't it be great if we just got some friends together in the backyard and called it a day? You're still married? If you do 10 26. Okay, pick up calls. This is John. It's John Williams. How are you? Hey, John. It's John Hampton. Actually. Hello. Hello. I had to call it. I recognize the voice. Ladies and gentlemen. John Hanson. What's up, man? I went I only have three or four. This was this upcoming five or six months. A lot of our leftover last year. But when I was 27, I went to 10 between April and October. When you're 27 You don't make much money. And when Enrique and I decided to get married, we decided just to invite 25 people to a bar. And it was just for that. We have all done it so many times we didn't want to put Our friends are and also John of the 10 weddings I went to. I think six or some of those people, I don't I never saw him again after their wedding. And you were you attended the wedding. You weren't in the wedding party, though. Well, I was in a couple of them, but, you know, officiated a couple of them Do But how, uh, 10, but they're still married. So I'm doing okay. April. May, June, July, August, September, October, seven months. 10 weddings in seven months. And can't you just say I mean, you could say Listen, You're my best friend, or you're my third best friend. But guess what? I have 10 friends and you're the seventh in the queue. So I'm not going to go. You could. You could say that, Couldn't you, John? Yeah, I don't I think I think when you're in your twenties, you maybe don't understand that. I think when you get a little bit older once you get to 32 33 just make up in it. I wish I had kids. They're a great excuse. Yeah, right. Uh, invent some adopt. Adopt Children. It will cost less and be less than Children are a lovely feature for a lot of good reasons. I have a granddaughter.
