Martinez Tonight – September 3, 2017

It was a lively and energetic episode of Martinez Tonight, with BellGab friend LittleChris joining the crew to drop some HUGE news concerning George Senda (The Guy From Pittsburgh).  Also, in their first public acknowledgement of BellGab matrimony, Yorkshire Pud announces his marriage to another BellGab member.  Who could it be?  As always, Confabulation Nation and chat room shout outs…with SendaShitPants winning tonight’s vote for best chat handle.  Frolicking fun for all.  Give it a listen.  Why not?  It’s free.
