Mom's in town so we sit down for some relationship questions, incriminating grandparent stories, hip and trendy celebrity impersonations, and hearty guffaws. Find out what nuts, tortoises, the Tucson desert, and bowls of blood have in common. Weens asks about regrets with our dad which spurs a story about dating Cowboy Denny. We question our tomboy qualities, learning about what mom fought for and what she let go of. And we finally reveal to her our secret ways of sneaking out of the house in high school, but are surprised by her response. There’s a fact check on coyote fatalities, we accidentally pitch a real-life horror movie idea about rattlesnakes in the ravine, and we close it out with a three-part harmony to our lord. You heard it here first!

00:10:04 - 00:15:02

I think he fell out of love with me. Really? I can't imagine why. You're. Matching. You know well, it's his loss. Well, thank you. Yeah, and resolved. Done. And we were done and life is good. Well that got heavy. Sorry about that. Hard. It's a real question. How did things go down that road? Yeah it is funky but you did say you never know what's around the next corner could find your true and that's why he had on Spurs. Long Sam Elliott mustache. So the first time that he met, Diane and Jeff Newman. Who Very Different Pars Jeff Newman at third base coach for the as he for the yeah and then he was a catcher for the as for years and years and years, and then he played Baltimore. He was all over the place. He ended up third base coach for the Indians we. I went to the World Series yes. That was the big. That's it, and he then worked for the Commissioner's Office and then retired. But when they first met him, it was at a bar. We went up to ask she's talking about her friends when they met Cowboy Denny her right current husband. Until we told him, we would meet them at the Cadillac Bar and Concord California. And they're on one side with me and we're waiting for Cowboy Denny to walk in and we were not engaged. We were just dating. Here comes a style and cowboy and he literally did have spurs on 'cause. Kidding he had just gotten off. Of Reid. And Those those. Year. I can do a lot of touch. Dad when. A man. She answered. Among. That can. Roll. Mike I live through. So anyway came walking with a cool cowboy hat and you know Wrangler said were chess a little edgy and dirty and his first on. and. So Jeff, who's a professional athlete figure? This guy's going to be okay don't. Know well, because he just has swag him and so so do professional came weight now she's getting upset. Let's get into some feminism ladies. Well, just what makes that cool to be? wizardy. Ways. I'm. Sports and what like mccheese? Ville. Staff was like cool. Why don't you had a spitoon he carried. On his fanny. Pack. His knife. Happening early from city slickers. He was kind of quiet but real secure that was it. That was lose genre of him so He was he was just tuning out though and he was imagining his dance moves in the Ballerina. Be doing the evening. What if that was the case you know I think cowboys in that particular era hid behind this I'm tough kind of thing. So you'd never knew quite how to approach him. Didn't you think that when you guys I Smith. Yeah Yeah. Mean to really dig off 'cause I remember of thousands renovate. going. Thousands of times you guys go. Is He mad? Could actually something wrong where we went from a very emotional. Talk the. Word and member there was I had broken up with someone and I was like in tears in state at your house, and then he asked will tell me all about it as well, and then I was like, wow, got nothing else to do I guess I'll tell them was. then. This bitter that. into cut to forty five minutes later. And then I finally stopped and then he goes. Trade up. That was it. It. Wasn't. Akron. Was Just Danny. Truths you have the person you needed at the time to listen to you. It all worked up just fine and he gave you the I contact in the encouragement to carry on with yourself. I do like Cowboy Danny Ilaga.

00:15:03 - 00:20:06

Yeah can you stay with us to make science? She's obsessed with the screens. Have you noticed I? Mom Go ahead and what would you like to ask? Well. We had a discussion earlier at dinner about like being feminine versus masculine versus somewhere between neutral sporty. Donna Earth what does it all mean? Where like what would you tell them about one hundred, fifty years of feminism. s just as our mom you see how it turned out and how you raise us. Wanting, more. No that one. Is What is your? I don't know where I'm going with this. He wants to have you give us advice or something. So this is what I appreciate about. Your DAB was that I would've raised you to be ma'am be Pam be you know? Little girls. I think. So because I I knew how to. So I knew how to cook you would have had all those skills for you wouldn't have known how to climate tree certainly, you wouldn't be first baseman like you guys were shortstops and that was the first baseman well. I mean. It's not a very exciting spot. And all the things that he brought to your life gave that beautiful balance. So I don't think either of you are too masculine or too feminine. But it was a matter of me letting go and I remember after Julianne was he won't take you outside and you were born in November and it was cold and rainy in northern California at I was beside myself and he just marched you out into the weather and you were a tiny baby and I just had to at that moment is when I realize this is how it's GonNa be. He's GonNa take the girls and he's GonNa, turn them the corner that I was not able to turn. So we turned out kind of tomboys all. I would say, very secure in. The world and kinesthetic aware Yeah and I think it was a great balance. So I'm probably not the person to ask about feminine. Masculinity I has. John we're talking about just cut you off. That's all right. We were talking about you and how strong your you started your own business you were no B. S. so you would tell people how you felt right you. When I was in kindergarten ladies and Gentlemen Bolinger Canaan Elementary. I seem to be distracted by bright shiny things we were. We were sitting in a circle and the teachers reading. Clifford. The big dog, my friend Jennifer Foster had cats and dogs buttons very exciting. They were shining I turn my back to the teacher and I started playing with her buttons. The teachers sent. Me To my desk instead Julian you're rude. I put my head down I was so ashamed. And instead of just putting my head and I realized, they were all over one side of the room in the circle stealth. So I just decided to leave I left the class at. Home was in kindergarten I. Walked all. Watching the door acquiesce guests, you came home some neighbor called do until the rest of the story. Yeah. She called the neighbor called and. A Juliana sitting on your front porch worse. Often I panicked a what does it work and so I booked at home and I thankfully worked only five minutes away. So I got home and here's Julianne on the Front Porch and she was only five. And she looked at me and her face was all swollen and dirty because she'd been crying and she goes. Mama. Mrs, we called me food. Didn't have the ability to say. She was not a yeah but then what did you do? So I said pack up your pants were going back to school I also wasn't wearing any pants when I cry very emotional and take off my pants. It still happens today. When dating? Anyway go ahead. He's. Always go and we marched ourselves cells right back down to Bollinger Canyon and I. I will say that it was rather a clint eastwood you know. With. Let me do my cleaning services. There you go. It was a little bit meads like Mrs Doubtfire.

00:20:07 - 00:25:00

What. What's the line was like go ahead and make line. No. Go ahead. You look like throw Momma from the train. Back. Great. Forget. Rick Murray Don. Getty show a picture of that because I took a picture. Yes and so of course, she has her fingers like pointed at you like guns of so funny. Is this the teacher know your sister back to Mrs Reese? Okay? Okay are you're going Clint Eastwood. And she knew that she was in hot water not because I'm such a tough foul. So it was just because how dare you let my child out from underneath you? And walk all that way as a little kid colony winner notice or no and so I just had a connection fit all over the place and then went to the principal's office and made him come down no, it was her Mrs Diamond Wasn't they John Diamond Joan diamond made her come to the kindergarten class and I knew one. I did I was so upset and part of it was Just you know. How can I say this? I. Think when you are parent, you turn your kids over to the officials at school in the assumption that they're going to protect your child plan. Jalen. Not any protection so anyway. We did with a lot of trust in people such as bus drivers. Teachers Ages your lives in the hands of many people. So there's been tiny order soup. When you guys Did Not Land I. Know. Quiet here. Mom, I'm sorry. Cheeks red. Wine drinking. Have you noticed little? It's because I'm going like this. I'm trying to keep rate. Let me do my WC. Kind of reminds Jimmy Durante maybe.

You were very sensible children. It was easy to parent you you when I would say I was displeased with your behavior you responded to it I did you know that I snuck out at night? No. Adults you've told me that and I've really wrestled with the fact that I was. Awhile, superior. Everybody sneaks out as kid lawyer I did too except for my really Elliott, Charlotte. If you're listening to this, you're not allowed to sneak out understand this is your mother and I will catch you. There's new technology it's called eye-in-the-sky big brother you're being watched and tracked. Yeah. That's in their plants and ferns have. Shen in them. I five. Key have electric you. Live. In High School. I snuck out and. I was a little sister of the LETTERMANS club So they would always have a car and we would all go mess around together and we. All the girls we'd all sneak out so that we can meet the football guys. Was it like Greece? Did you meet a wash in the Ravine Zach Party? Did you thought? So I remember these stories. You increase. Let you never even take. Discard. The La River like, yeah. No I never seen the move. Yeah Mom. Sister. GonNa Watch Greece. Okay. Girls get. So we yes that's exactly why. Do. Well, one of the guys or two of the guys would have all ready like lifted beer and one time they were strong. Letterman guys went into his dad's outdoor patio bar and they had those kegs. Underneath you know and they then they have the handle and he brought this keg. And this is the truth and I'm not lying I never ever had beer or. Ever until I got to college so I would go to these. She's at square. was totally but they got down to the Rabin in Tucson and they were trained open this beer keg because it didn't have all the components, the handles, and so they're beating and kicking. In. Not Successfully, new house. The SHERP date. The malkin opener for the KEG. So. As we're doing this, we see red lines coming out. On the it was the sheriff. Pinkerton. and. We froze like rabbits. I mean none of us knew what to do so we just stood there because really in truth we were all really good kids and he came up with his deputy sheriff any said. All right kids you got to leave and we're going. going. To jail what is going on? He goes the Kaya Packs are coming you have to get out of you and so which was probably a ploy I've never heard of this well, so we all got our cars and in those days there was. Low. Rider cars and it was to sudden it was hot and you know had your windows staff and sure enough. We heard these huge howling packs. And saw. Don't know if they were telling, David. I had to look this up because my friend said, they do not attack humans coyotes will attack humans I'm Jay, attack him by nothing but killed. In your. View. What they do what I'm sorry this is like living. This. Fact check okay all right. There two fatalities of coyote injuries. One was a year old girl got bitten by a coyote and went to the hospital with blood loss. Another one was a woman that got been to coyotes and she had to go to the hospital with football. And died. Rest in peace a woman and child.

Where would it go just down the ravine it would just want everything because flash floods just. As Human Penal Kate here's the Best part of this story is people would think that they could beat the flash floods now and so instead of going over the bridges, they go through the regular dirt road.

Joyce Carter

Joyce Carter is our sweet mom who passed away January 2023. She was a regular on our show and our #1 fan of course! Joyce grew up with two older brothers, moving around the west with her mom and dad, who worked for Southern Pacific Railroad. They settled in Tucson Arizona, where she spent her junior high, high school, and university years majoring in music and part of many choral groups. She met our dad at the U of A, and they started their young family, raising us in Northern California. There, we learned the joys of music, nature and art with our young mom staying home to raise us. Later, after self-taught decorating, Joyce became an interior designer in Danville and started her own business, Silkwood Interiors. She ended up divorcing our dad as they grew apart, but married Cowboy Denny and found her second chapter in love! They moved to Idaho in the 90's where she became a wonderful horsewoman in competitive reining. She also spent 27 as the designer for a home building company Skidmore Inc. Joyce helped design, build, and decorate over 400 homes in the Idaho Falls area, winning many awards. She also took up watercolor painting and produced many, many wonderful pieces of art. Our mom was a fun, energetic, sweet, warm, loving, creative, talented, and strong woman who taught us that we can do anything we put our minds to. She was our Third Musketeer in our lives, with all of our girl trips, our get-togethers, snow birding in Temecula to be closer to all of us in San Diego, and our many talks and motherly advice. She loved to travel, to be around her grandchildren, to cook, garden, build, ride, sing, paint, play piano and guitar. She leaves behind such a void, as everyone she met was instantly moved by her connection and loving sensibilities. We are honored to have had her on our podcast recordings so many times and are glad to have shared her with our audience so they could get to know our wonderful mother. She will be so , so missed.
