P.S.: By the way! Here’s that photo of the guinea pig that we were served in Peru. It’s blurred, so click on it to see the actual clear image. It ain’t pretty.


  1. I love that your cat is named Willie Nelson 🙂 My first cat I ever had was named Waylon! Your podcasts are so funny. Love the show too.

    • How cool! Kindred spirits! Thank you so much! We sure appreciate you watching and listening!! 🙂

  2. having lived in Alaska around the native people I learned to respect their traditions and I can remember my folks telling me about eating horsemeat during WW11. SO I try to remember that each society has traditions that I would abhor but not judge. We all have no idea what we would eat it it meant living or dying so whom am I to judge. With that being said I’m with Nik on trying weird food – would not be a pretty sight. Love you two so much!

    • So true! You have to appreciate the traditions and respect the people just like we’d hope folks would do for us. But sometimes it gets a little hazy on just how far to go… So far, so good! Thanks so much, Cheri! We sure appreciate you watching and listening. Hope you and yours are doing well! 🙂
