I had to play a fireworks display last night.  It was a huge display and the fireworks went off right over our heads.  The equipment was covered in ash, little, round chunks of carbon and big chunks of cardboard.  It didn't really hurt anything but that was a new experience.  We got loaded up and finally got home but this morning I had to get up after about 3 and a half hours of sleep, to go set up in the park here in town and play again.  Not at all in the mood to do this but the pay is really good.

I just wondered if anyone ever caught "Cosmic Cat"?  John

I watched the cosmic cat you posted. THat guy has a lot of spare money to buy all those props and make others. ;) It was funny they way they went from the cat puppet to the cat. It makes me think of when I was a kid, I had a fort in the basement that looked like a luner lander (something bought) and I would spend hours and hours playing it it and pretending I was on Lost in Space (I used to love the sow, now as an adust it is a bit too childish for me after season 1).

  That does bring back memories.  My brother and I played a lot based on those old 1960s television shows.  "Lost In Space", "Voyage To The Bottom Of The Sea", "The Wild Wild West", even "The Man From UNCLE".  Have to agree that after the first season they changed "Lost In Space" into the "Dr. Smith" show and it could be hard to watch.  You just had to ignore the silliness.  I do have the pilot episode when there was no "Dr. Smith", and while I think Jonathan Harris was a terrific actor, I hated the character.

I wondered too, where that guy got all the money to do that.  I watched his studio tour and saw a ton of pictures.  Most of his props were homemade but he did have a lot of original props.  The work he put into all of it was incredible and the money was unimaginable.  His attention to detail was just jaw-dropping.  His studio is in Lyons Nebraska, about 5 hours away from me and I talked to my brother about going up there to see it, and he was all up for it.  With Cheri so sick though, I think that trip is out for the Summer.  John
