Episode 12: Guess Who Is Coming To Dinner!

 In Episode:12 podcast—Guess Who Is Coming To Dinner, I tell the story about the time Kinky Friedman called me at the Utopia Animal Rescue Ranch, to ask me to please cook dinner for him and the famous Christopher Hitchens, one of the best known journalist in America, and for Hitchens' camera crew, and for our dear friends Sandy & John Wolfmueller.

It was the fall of 2004, and unexpected when, late in the day, Christopher Hitchens and his camera crew came out to Kinky's ranch to visit and interview him for a documentary that Hitchens was currently working on.

The documentary Texas: America Supersized can be viewed on YouTube, so if you are interested in watching it please click on Texas: America Supersized.

I had a lot of fun doing this podcast and besides telling that funny story about that night, I also included a Cousin Boomer update and a funny newly wed joke to make you laugh even more.

The Nancys: One Is A Cousin & One Is The First Lady Of Bandera, Texas!

My guests are my dear friends Nancy Harvey and Gerry Olert. Nancy is the official First Lady of  Bandera, Texas and Gerry is officially the Best Videographer In Texas. And before we started recording the podcast, Tony served up his grilled, bacon-wrapped bananas and Nancy and Gerry both raved about how delicious they were.

In this fun, 40 minute, 9th episode, Nancy Harvey tells some fascinating stories, talks about her awesome Bandera store "Spirits Of Texas," her famous family, and her singing Chihuahua that will only sing when listening to Kinky Friedman sing. And Gerry kept  us aka "The Nancys," on our toes and laughing out loud—by reading some of Willie Nelson's most favorite jokes, off of the Internet. Here is a picture that Tony took of the three of us doing the podcast.
