    I lived in Colorado for 20 years (1970-1990) and my car had a “Don’t Californicate Colorado” bumper sticker on it and I never had my car damaged. In contrast to my “Close Rocky Flats” (if you lived in Colorado during the 1980s you know what I mean) which resulted in two comprehensive insurance claims.

    Love the Ladybbrains and have listened since Day 1!

    @bethanymandel, the next time you play the orphan card, you should tell people your grandmother used to send you minivan tires and motor oil . . .

    And thank goodness you and your family were safe after that incident. A tire blowing out at high speed can be dangerous. OTOH, if you were on the B-W Parkway, odds are you weren’t going at high speed . . .

    Long time Ladybrains fan and podcasts like this one is illustrative of why. Good talk (which reminds me of no Sethany podcast this week). Been a Mary Katherine fan since she was on an Ace of Spades podcast a long time ago and the rest of the Ladybrains just kinda grow on ya…

    I enjoyed the “purse explosion” segment. I liked all the Mommy things in Bethany’s. But, did I hear correctly that Lyndsey had an entire dress in her purse? That suggests either a very large purse or a very small dress.

    Once our children were old enough that at diaper bag was no longer needed, Mrs. Tabby insisted on carrying no more than a very small purse, so the concept of large purses is foreign to me.

    I suspect neither Bethany nor her husband Seth have enough inclination to pay attention to their cars to keep them safe. They probably should have a friend who is at least modestly car-interested look over the cars (the minivan and the infamous Altima) every couple of weeks for them to make sure that everything looks normal (tire pressure (including the spare – I’m surprised a spare tire so long ignored had enough air pressure to function), oil, coolant, and brake fluid levels, etc.).
