It’s been quite a week, right? We’ve got quarantines and Covid19 and working from home and it almost feels like we’re waking up in a different world every day.
The day I recorded this intro, Wednesday March 25, 2020, I did wake up to a different world when I woke to the news that the man we call Dad, Crazy Larry or Yosemite Sam had died at home during the night. He had not been well for a long time and this wasn’t exactly unexpected, but it also wasn’t exactly expected either.
Ironically today’s show was going to be a continuation of last week’s episode which was called Yosemite Sam’s Daughters Don’t Take No Guff. Enjoy some more about Crazy Larry, plus a story from Erin's husband Van about his son, Genius Boy #3.
And RIP Dad, you had a helluva run.

Welcome back to week two of wedding stories… this week we find our friend Lynz, Wedding DJ to the non-stars, hard at work at another fun wedding dance, when he something happens that is the nightmare of all great Wedding Djs, but of course he handles it! And, then Tammy is back with the tale of the crazy Ex Girlfriend. Plus, we’ve got some cute and short wedding anecdotes you don't want to miss.
Before we get going I just want to say thank you to our first Coffee.com patron who bought myself and my sisters a week of virtual coffee just to say thank you for making the show! It was so fun to wake up and find that message in my inbox! Ko-Fi.com is a really cool website where you can basically buy virtual cups of coffee as a way to say thanks to some of your favorite creators… like us! We love Coffee! The real kind and the website Coffee.com, so if you want a cool way to say thanks and help support the show, buy us a cup or two!
Quick note: Today’s episode includes swearing. And we apologize for the uneven sound quality this week… we had some technical difficulties.
We might not have been the most conventional family on the block...
One of the things that happens in our family is a chronic under-reaction to crazy things that most people would most likely have somewhat of a bigger reaction to.. like, say, a gunshot wound, otherwise known as a GSW.
In our family, we hardly bat an eye because it’s just one more crazy thing, right?
Especially if no one dies or is seriously injured – maybe its because we come from such a large family – 7 kids, so there’s more possibility of crazy things happening more often OR maybe it’s because we’ve all become used to dealing with the man we call Crazy Larry, also known as our dad.
Enjoy today’s episode featuring my sister Jenny – it’s all one story that we’re calling Pregnant Cat, Gunshot Wound, Christmas Present.
This is Kim A. Flodin and Welcome to How in the Hell Did I Get Here?
(Side note: It turns out the BB that came out of our brother Matt was put there by our brother, Kris… so Crazy Larry is off the hook on that one.)
If you have a How in the Hell Did I Get Here story and would like the chance to be featured as a call-in story teller, give us a call right now at 323-488-3303 and leave us your story! That’s 323-488-3303
