I know, I know, you're all tired of hearing about my o-l-d buddies from years back.  But listen here.  It's my blog and I'll put anything on it that I like.  So here's a picture of four old geezers taken just this afternoon.

All four are graduates of KPNX-TV in Phoenix.  They are, from left to right, the Legendary Lew Ruggiero, the Studly Steve Torbeck, King Karl Kindberg, and your not-so-humble-correspondent.

As has been noted elsewhere, only Lew had the good sense to wear long pants.  

The occasion was a gathering at Karl's house to encourage him, after his recent knee transplant surgery, not to take his own life . . . in spite of, now, two knee surgeries and one hip transplant.  Let's face it . . . the man is bionic!

But enough about them.  Take a look at my grandson and his wife, who are ON VACATION IN IRELAND!!!  (How do these kids get their money, anyway?)

Kayla, with her fair skin and that head of red hair, and Rusty, with that red beard, truly look like a couple of real Irish-folk.  Actually, I don't know if either one of them have a drop of Irish blood but they certainly won't have to beg for a free bottle of Guiness in Ye Olde Country.

And finally, just to set the Bug's mind at ease about rabbit pie . . . a photo of My Favorite Bunny, still hopping along that bunny trail.

That's all.  G'nite, folks.

The grands do indeed look Irish. The bunny looks healthy still. I'm trying to imagine what the newsroom must have been like when the geezers looked more like the grands.

Nice get together. The Grands look like they are having a ball.

My question again. Sorry if you mentioned it and I missed it. Is that a photo of Donald Sutherland on your header?

Delightful to have old buddies, isn't it'? My own group of geezers has several bionic members, too.

The Bug said...

OK, I recognized two out of those three geezers - so I guess you've posted enough pictures of them now. Ha!

LOVE that picture of your grands - they look like they're having a fabulous time!

And thank you for easing my mind about the bunny :)

I admire the fact that you're still in touch with old friends and feel free to post pictures of your "buds" any time you want, as if you need my permission.

I see some very familiar faces in that group of old buddies.

No, just a model. Unless it's George Bernard Shaw.

You wouldn't want to know!

They do look like they could be Irish!

Great to have old friends to share memories with. Enjoy!
