Yeah Tanya, the Board of Supervisors read a proclamation into the record thanking me for my 34 years of service to the community. This was as a result of my retiring. Since my replacement won't take over until May 15th, I've agreed to stick around even though I'm officially retired. I guess what you saw was the TV broadcast of the Board meeting.

In December 2001 my wife and I appeared on The Learning Channel's (TLC) Robotica television series. To apply for the show we made a wierd video that made my garage look like a Frankenstein lab. It at least convinced someone that I owned enough crap to cobble together a robot eventually, so we were accepted for the show. It was a lot of fun and we got a week all expense paid trip to Hollywood. (we moved from LA five years earlier) We were not crowned grand champions, but we didn't embarrass ourselves either.
Oh I forgot. I was the bad Boris Karloff impersonation at the beginning of a bad Horror movie (surely run on Sci-Fi channel by now) called "The Unnamable"

I even made one memorable moment for many people - we were in white costumes and were about to go on and I had to go to the bathroom really really bad. Really bad. No one believed me and it was only a 2 song set. They'd given us each a bottle of Coke because we'd been rehearsing some new songs for a while in back and were all looking pretty thirsty. Boy, did I ever have to go.

Somewhere about mid first song suddenly there was a dark streak down the front of my pants. It's a good thing I had a guitar in front of me or who knows what may have shown. The camera guys were laughing and trying not to be heard, my sisters and brother were wondering what it was they were doing that was making everyone laugh and trying not to get the giggles too. I had a somewhat embarrassed look on my face, but we finished our set. After that whenever I said I had to go I was quickly escorted to the bathroom no questions asked.

That remains the case even today. When the family gets together and I say I've gotta go everyone gets out of the way .

Ah, the things we remember.

I also remember when we got to the Grand Ol Opry they wouldn't let us play our guitars. I do not remember why, but I do remember feeling pretty naked out there without my guitar to hide behind and we sang the songs differently than the band was used to so they had to come in early and practice and weren't too pleased about that. They wanted us to change the way we did our songs but my mom and grandmother were all over them. That was the only place on the entire tour where this was an issue for some reason.

Hey, The show must go on.

I was at the park w/ my wife and our dogs just chillin the day before Thanksgiving many moons ago and out of the bushes pops a news crew. They accosted me and asked me what was the best way to cook turkey. This was before we had kids an I was definitely enjoying the day, the park, and myself so my tounge was loose and I let er rip. I named off about 10 ways to cook a turkey followed by my favorite. The news crew was laughing and so was I but not near as much as my wife. Our friends and family that saw it said I came off just like Forrest's shrimper friend on Forrest Gump. Talking about deep fried turkey, my 15 seconds of infamy. What I still want to know is how they knew they'd latched on to a turkey connosueir.

I have not been on TV, but I have made a few appearances on Welcome to the Frontpage - The Vintage Airstream Podcast. I feel much more honored to have been on that show, than if I might have appear on the television.

Thanks for everyone's participation! I am having a good time reading about everyone's claim to fame too. Yes I am holding on...spring will come, it usually does...eventually. I'm anxious to meet you too. I have seen quite a few new names in the area now. We need to have a "coming out" rally once we emerge from our snow caves!!!!!

Not a tv appearance but I was in a ChicagoTribune newspaper picture as a member of the "Sweet Sioux" We were baton twirlers from the local VFW Post 1583, Henry A. Honack Post and dressed as indians with lots of fringe! The picture was taken at RiverView Amusement Park in a parade. Is there no limit to my talent, a regular Miss Firecracker? ROFL!!!!!!!!!!

When I was 12 (1975) my dad did an American Express "you don't know me that's why I carry the card" type ad. Us kids were in view packing the car in the background for an apparent road trip. We were paid $50 each which was a huge thrill for my siblings and I. When I turned 21 I received a surprise check in the mail for $950. The rest of the $1,000 that I had actually earned. Father knew best how a 12 year old might blow that much money

Gee, thanks alot buddy! LOL!!!!!!!!!! Buried in boxes and probably rightly so.

Since I can't oblige with the picture, how about I entertain you with this mental image ...seems to me instead of a lovely figure of a girl marching, I had one end of the banner, while the other shortest and very youngest held the other end.

There was this... teensie weensie little glitz in our parade style, however. The route they had us traverse had columns and pillars after the first turn that we were not aware of beforehand, so instead of being able to side step around them as all the others in front of us were able to do, Laura and I may have caused somewhat of a majorette pile-up!!! DOH! Think fast doubletime step. Neither one of us went ahead of the other to turn the banner sideways... Now do you have the picture? Are you envisioning a bunch of little girls piling up like Keystone Cops while the real marching bands about to overtake us? Aint fame grand!?

I think it was 1951, I sat in the Peanut Gallery on the Howdy Doody show from New York. Then in first grade, was on a local educational program in Buffalo, NY called "Fun to Learn". Many years later, was interviewed by local news stations in Seattle, WA for being a passenger on a WA state ferry during a collision with a VERY LARGE bulk carrier in the fog on Puget Sound. Quite disconcerting at the time!!!
Still waiting for that big break!!

Cheers, jeff
