    Sleeping With Snakes

  • Grant and Mary Hubbard of Wreckroom Snakes

    in Pets

    Got a spouse who's into Reptiles? Hey, don't laugh!  It happens all the time. Sometimes, your mate's 'other' passion can grow on you to a point where you suddenly have something really cool in common besides the burning flame you share for each other. There are lots of folks out there that put the 'mom and pop' in a mom and pop business, but Grant and Mary Hubbard don't just keep the wheels turning at Wreckroom Snakes, they truly enjoy every minute of it. CK catches up with the Hubbards to see how splitting up the workload with well defined tasks that play to their respective strengths helps Grant and Mary get 'er done, and have some fun, all at the same time.

    Some of you may have attempted to listen to this show on 10/5/2014. That show took place, but was never recorded by blog talk. This episode is the re-do of that ill-fated show. Hope you enjoy.
