The gals have a special guest today, Bo Walker, who is the grand prize winner of a guest spot on the show, sponsored by Fun4TallyKids.com 31 Days of Giveaways. Bo is a children's pastor with a big heart and he shares with us about some of his passions. He's also the father of triplets, about which he is a good sport about answering a lot of questions.
Heather did a little shopping for things she thinks a dad of triplets might like, and recommends a stop at a men's general store, which smells lovely and manly.

Then, Heather takes Bo and Chryssy deep into the rabbit hole of her brain, as she devises a game based on the Rule of 3. It blows Chryssy's mind and is a lot of fun. Can you guess the answers to her questions?
Until next time...
Have yourself a Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow, but pass the potatoes, not the COVID.
This may be the year for new traditions, and you may find you actually like the change. Don’t want to listen to Uncle Bill’s political rant? Just close that Zoom call, baby!
Take a moment to reminisce about the Thanksgiving of old . . . it may make you glad for something new. Chryssy would like to know, how many Thanksgivings have you spent in a bar? Her count is pretty high.
The girls lament cooking, as per usual, and review some tips they’ve received on how to make poultry that leave them questioning if anyone actually knows how to cook. Best of luck to everyone out there trying to do the whole bird tomorrow, especially to the first-timers.
Speaking of the ladies dishing out tips, you’re going to want to tune in here for some really great advice on technology. As you know, Chryssy and Heather are experts in tech, and have insights to share (routers, Ethernet, modem . . . you know . . .).
From everyone at How To Do Life, we send you the warmest Thanksgiving blessings and hope you create some memories. Until next time.
Did you know - if a guide dog walks up to you with no person, you are supposed to follow the dog? Chryssy didn’t. Listen to why on our new segment – PSA.
In keeping with the new segment theme, we have another for you – Chryssy Cares. Listen in to see what she cares about.
Heather is busy being productive and finishing a book while Chryssy is just fluttering through life. The ladies talk about clear concise writing and deliver some examples.
There’s a discussion about food and drink and television characters’ food and drink and their influence over Chryssy. Chryssy learns that no one else in her life feels the influence of TV character’s drink choices like she does. Do you drink tea or wine along with the characters on the shows you like? Do you know there’s a reason behind your character’s drink? Learn more here: https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/DrinkBasedCharacterization
Don’t forget to read Cheryl Strayed’s WILD. Book club is coming in 3 more weeks.
Until next time.
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas to Heather, and this show opens with some good news for people who like to decorate early. It means you are happier and friendly and have more fun! So that's a relief for the gals since they are both ready for Santa's arrival. Chryssy is feeling a little paranoid after decorating though, since there are so many Santa eyes watching her now.
Heather is distracting herself before Christmas by adding some structure to her life by training for a marathon, after being inspired by her friend who finished the Ironman race.
And that leads Heather into some curious questions for Chryssy - and you - about bravery.
Let’s talk about murder. Specifically, who would be the suspects, were you to be murdered? No one is killing Heather, but Chryssy’s in trouble.
Have you been to the dentist lately? Even here in the COVID times, you better clean those teeth, or you could get Alzheimer’s – we think.
Congratulations are in order as Heather is making a show with spiking, striking numbers that is ALSO raising money and awareness for some excellent local organizations. Way to go, Ms. Heather!
Chryssy confesses to a lot of sins today – listen in to find out what.
Until next time!
Heather leads this show with a sigh of relief that a strange and tense time in our nation's history is finally over and we can move on. 80s Week on the Great British Baking Show rattled all of us, but we will be okay.
Heather recommends getting away from TV altogether and going camping, and regales Chryssy with tales from her recent foray into the woods, including what turtles should and should not eat.
And then in the grab bag, Heather presents four styles of parenting to Chryssy and asks a myriad of questions about which type of parenting she is. Do we parent different kids differently? What style were we raised by? Does that inform our parenting? Take the quiz and find out: https://www.verywellfamily.com/types-of-parenting-styles-1095045
Until next time...
It’s a new month, and we’re nearing the end of the year. And Heather really likes how this November is starting out because of the way October ended.
Memories of Halloween - or "humbleween" as Heather's son called it - include a zipline carrying candy from Heather's roof to childrens' hands, Chryssy's daughter's successful 2020 costume, and the perils of COVID trick-or-treating.
2020 has proven to be an interesting year but things are about to get even weirder.
For example, a massive asteroid named after Apophis - the 'God of Chaos' - gains speed as it travels towards Earth with a potential impact date of 2068 in an explosion that would be equivalent to 880 MILLION tons of TNT?
Also, Chryssy's trip to Portugal needs to happen as soon as Americans are allowed to go to other countries, because
World's longest pedestrian suspension bridge opening in Portugal!
Self-cloning mutant crayfish have taken over a cemetery in Belgium.
That’s cray cray.
Chryssy is still enjoying the fruits of our labors from the 100th episode. She shares a couple stories from listeners, one is heartwarming and the other is just funny.
She then sends a big shout out to our face blind friend Paula, who will feel Chryssy’s pain on the next story. Could you be convinced one of your best friends was a stranger simply by another member of your party saying, “I don’t think that’s her?” Chryssy could. Could you gaff again, even worse, and ask her if her boyfriend, who you have met several times and had dinner at his home, was her father? Chryssy could. Yikes.
We get into the Book Club Book Review today. The ladies discuss Brene Brown’s The Gifts of Imperfection. This was our first book club book, and it was a great place to begin. It’s about self reflection and self-acceptance. Brene Brown was toeing the line on embracing ourselves, flaws and all, while Chryssy and Heather were still in their formative stages on the topic.
The show ends with the announcement of the next book club book. We are reading “Wild” by Cheryl Strayed, Chryssy’s siren song of transformation as well as her personal beacon for how to pack excellent, tear-jerking writing into a mere couple of pages. Get Wild on order now. We will be talking about it in about a month. Here’s the link. https://www.amazon.com/Wild-Found-Pacific-Crest-Oprahs-ebook/dp/B005IQZB14
Until next time.
