Broadway Joe

Ran across this little gem, and had to pass it along:

That's right....Joe Willie Namath, aka Broadway Joe doing a song & dance about Broadway on an old Steve Allen special. Aaahhh.....the 70's....!

Another Sad Day

Well, sadly, I had to say goodbye to Fifi, our surviving Doberman. She was a good friend, and a sweetie. Having been sickly for a while, she never really recovered from losing Gretchen, her 'alpha dog'.

She was a quiet, gentle member of the family, loved by everyone. The neighborhood children would come over to visit and pet her, and loved feeding time. The only dog I ever saw catch a squirrel on the run, she was just too weak to go on.
Here she is in younger days, peeping over the wall at our previous home:

Well, it's been a while since I've updated. Been busy with a job change and the holidays and all. Got all kinds of art/animation goodies (software, pegbars, etc.)for Christmas or Festivus or HannuKwanzamas....!
Will be using these to finish putting together my 'pitch'.

Attempted to attend first Mardi Gras parade of the season down on Dauphin Island yesterday. Their floats are a bit primitive, traffic was poorly managed, and we actually missed the parade and sat stranded for over an hour after a 'senior citizen' driving a looooooonnnnnng luxurious motorhome (with s.u.v. in tow) pulled too far into an impassible 't' intersection. He blocked traffic 3-ways and pissed off a LOT of locals and me...! When we finally convinced him to disconnect the vehicle-in-tow, we were able to make our escape to a local watering hole to wait for the traffic to clear.
Saw a lot of mulletts. The 'do', not the fish. And they were 'proud' mulletts, some over 2-feet long...! (Not like the old 'semi-mulletts everyone had at some point in the 80's/early 90's).
And Bikers.
