Bob! You’ve posted selfies three days in a row! Yeah. Let’s make it four.
Today I used some PTO. It’s a beautiful day – to clean the garage. Despite not having to be anywhere I woke at sunrise. That’s because Oliver was licking my face. After letting the dog outside for a short spell I couldn’t fall back asleep. So I did my best Army slogan impression: “We do more before 9 AM than most people do all day.” It’s not yet noon and the garage is done.
During cleaning I found an envelope of pictures from 1985. The first one is me during spring break in Ft. Lauderdale. Note my touristy t-shirt. Note my attempt to focus my eyes. In the second picture I’m standing in front of a statue of Antoinette in downtown Plymouth, Wisconsin.
The envelope had other pictures from my freshman year at the University of Wisconsin. The third one is Tridad who was my roommate that year. That one is also in Ft. Lauderdale. I think it was his birthday that day. Tridad has left Tumblr again but I can post his picture. Like the song by an appropriately named band says, You can check-out any time you like, But you can never leave.
The fourth picture, well that explains why we were laughing. Or one of the reasons. It’s the 1984 classic Hot Dog - The Movie. Not to be confused with Hot Dog - The Romantic Novel or Hot Dog -The Calculus Textbook. I think we watched parts of that movie on HBO every night during spring break.
I just checked. Hot Dog - The Movie is not currently available on Netflix or Amazon streaming. There are no more VHS rental places I know of.
I guess I’ll never know how the movie ended.
