Mr. and Mrs. Ley - or should we say Chr-eanna ...or Deann-is - chat about a whole 'lot of nothin' as they reflect on their blur of a week. They both agree that their fabulous dinner out with two Neighbors of The Good 'Hood and Jarred Aslett (the Hero of Episode #51) starting his hike of the PCT were some of the highlights, for sure.
