Show Notes for Thursday January 31, 2019


Dear John,

I met a guy through a mutual friend. We have gone on several dates and he is the perfect man for me, except I think he may be a momma's boy. I talk to my mom a few times a month and I love her very much. It seem like every time I talk to him, he just got off the phone with him mom. I'm starting to wonder if that's going to be a problem. He's never been married and this may be why! I've never met his mom, but we're supposed to meet in a few weeks. I don't know if we will get along or if she will even like me. I'm afraid that when we do meet, I will be too worried about making a good impression that I will not be myself. His dad died a few years ago and he's an only child, so I think that may be why it seems like they are so connected. Not sure if this is a warning sign or a good thing. Any advice for me before I meet her?

A Pennsylvania man says his emotional support alligator helps him deal with his depression. 65-year-old Joie Henney said his registered emotional support animal named Wally likes to snuggle and give hugs, despite being a 5-foot-long alligator. The York Haven man said he received approval from his doctor to use Wally as his emotional support animal after not wanting to go on medication for depression. Henney acknowledged that Wally is still a dangerous wild animal and could probably tear his arm off, but says he’s never been afraid of him. According to the York Daily Record, Henney’s background also indicates a comfort with creatures like Wally. He hosted a show called “Joie Henney’s Outdoors” on ESPN Outdoors from 1989 to 2000. Henney frequently takes Wally out for meet-and-greets at places like senior centers and minor-league baseball games. “He’s just like a dog,” Henney told a woman at a recent outing to a senior center. “He wants to be loved and petted.” (

According to a report, a man constructed a potentially deadly bomb at an Iowa sushi restaurant because he didn’t think people took “these types of threats seriously.” 40-year-old Ivory Washington assembled an improvised explosive device that looked like a hand grenade at Akebono 515 in Des Moines. The restaurant’s owner said that patrons noticed Washington was acting strangely but had “no idea” he was building a bomb. Washington called the police on himself claiming that his bomb was fake. The bomb squad determined the device was legitimate and authorities immediately took him into custody. Des Moines police Sgt. Paul Parizek said, “We tested it to see it if would explode. It did.” Police said that anyone within a 10-foot radius would have been killed if the device detonated. Washington was charged with possession of an explosive or incendiary material. (
