It’s a morning show feature here on Mix 96.9…because I feel like we could all use a little more good news in our lives…all bad news has been CANCELLED – at least for the moment.
- A Chick-fil-A employee recently saved a young girl from choking on a coin. Lilian screamed for help when her daughter, started gasping. That’s when the employee, quickly stepped in to action, performed the Heimlich maneuver and saved the child’s life.
- An animal charity called Draw for Paws recently launched a new program called “Grandpaws” . . . P-A-W-S . . . to help older pets get adopted from shelters. They’re having people in retirement homes paint pictures of them, and posting them online.

September 25 – 29
Abby and Bill have a pair of tickets to the Tennessee Valley Old Time Fiddler’s Convention, held at Athens State University on October 4 – 8!
It’s those news stories that are true, but on the “crazy” side, bringing sometime laughter, and other times leaving listeners scratching their heads! Crazy But True can be heard at 6:15 and 8:20 each weekday morning!
Losing something pricey like an Apple Watch is NOT good . . . and you might be willing to do crazy things to find it. But there’s a line you just CAN’T cross. It’s Crazy But True…
A woman in Michigan was in an outhouse on Tuesday morning, when she dropped her Apple Watch….yes, INTO the toilet. Bad right…… But what happens next is the crazy part…… The woman decided to try and retrieve the watch by “lowering herself inside the toilet.” It was big enough that she fit down inside . . . but then she got STUCK. She yelled for help, and someone called the police.
First responders showed up and found her, “in the muck.” They removed the top, and then used a strap to “hoist” her out to safety. And in case you were wondering, she did manage to retrieve the now…..disgusting….. watch. Afterward, the police issued a public reminder saying, “If you lose an item in an outhouse toilet, do not attempt to go inside the containment area. Serious injury may occur.” You think?
Crazy, But True!
