brought 'em home
Nothing like a great weather day where absolutely everything goes as planned. Not a cloud in the sky and a high of 72 today. Finished the welding at 3:45 and trailered them home at 4:15. Took a quick shower - my 3rd one in a week...now that's a record! Returned Chuck's trailer and took him to dinner as part of a thank you for his grid power over the last couple of days. We went down to the Starlight Theatre for 241 burger night. The place was already packed at 6PM and they were expecting a 100 eighth graders on a school trip - so no room at the inn. We headed down to the Eldorado ....good food but not much ambiance. We stopped back at the Starlight to see what a restaurant full of eighth graders looked like - looked like way too many young strangers in our local hangout.
Just as I walked in the door at home...the phone rang - that never happens. It was my new friend Dan Stricklin from the television program,Texas Country Reporter. I emailed him a couple of months ago about what I am up to out here in the middle of nowhere and they want to come out to do a segment on the Field Lab next week. Check out their style of reporting at http://www.youtube.com/user/texascountryreporter Very Charles Kuralt as Dan pointed out to me. This should be fun - I always loved "On the Road" with Charles Kuralt when I was a kid. The last time I was interviewed for a television program was over 10 years ago when I was a sculptor in Brooklyn. It was a Japanese show called appropriately enough, "NewYorkers". I still have a VHS around here somewhere...
