The Show With No Name

Alone Again, Naturally.....But Not On Petit Jean

 The Show With No Name had all of the working, movable parts, in place today. The same can not be said at the home of The Artist Formerly Known As The Outlaw, Tommy Smith. His wife is outta town this week and he is full of emotions and is vulnerable. He doesn't know what to do with his time and fears going home too early to the empty nest may lend to him getting in trouble on the Internet. He may be able to find some sites but, doesn't now how to clear out his cache or recent address look ups, if ya will. Not that I do either.  I'd have to have RJ Hawk walk me thru that. At least that's what he does at home and on David's laptop.

 Speaking of my friend David Bazzel. We spent the weekend on top of Petit Jean Mountain. Go ahead. Have your fun. I can wait for ya to get your minds outta the gutter.............................................................Well it took you long enough. Too long! We were up there representing the little people that couldn't get away from their everyday responsibilities. I understand that totally. The Winthrop Rockefeller Institute hosted its second annual Film Forum designed to explore the arts of acting, screenwriting, producing, and directing. Sure there was plenty of hobnobbing with the beautiful people but, that was where Bazzel stepped in. That's where Mr. David Bazzel shines.  I, on the other hand, was relegated to staying out of  Robert Walden's way. Robert Walden, Actor/Artistic Director of the Winthrop Rockefeller Institute Film Forum. WOW! Good news bad news......Bad news was I was the only smoker on the mountain. Good news was that I smoked less than a pack in 3 days! That's real good for me. We had several  2 to 2 1/2 hour seminars everyday starting on Thursday with only 15 minutes between. I learned a lot and improved my health. Thanks to the staff and to my friend David Bazzel for a great weekend.

 Harry King came in and was doing pretty good but, kinda scared me a little when he said that he would play golf in the type of cold weather we're having today. He is on blood thinner. Coupled with his old guy skin could be deadly. He did say that he is a Mike Anderson fan, but believes that Coach Anderson has to make the NCAA tournament next year or we get rid of him. I know, I know. It's the medication. 

Good time all around on the show this morning and tomorrow has the seeds to be even better. Rasslin' Man may drop by, more Babe Bracket, and we start looking for the oldest restaurants in the state. My hunch is that the majority of the eateries are Bar-B-Q places. whether I'm right or wrong, the chances are good we will eat at a few of them.

Tommy, David, RJ, and myself thank you for listening and making The Show With No Name your #1 station!
