Laurel and Hardy weekend!

Monday, July 30th, 2007

The Sons of the Desert is a world wide Laurel and Hardy fan club. This past weekend, the Way Out West tent (or chapter) of the fan club celebrated their 40th Anniversary and I was invited! The Grand Sheik of the Way Out West tent – Jimmy Wiley, Jr. – asked my friend Brian Mulligan and myself if we would appear as Laurel and Hardy on the two day ‘locations tour’. That is a tour of all the locations throughout Culver City and Los Angeles where Laurel and Hardy filmed their movies. A Laurel and Hardy lover’s dream! Over 120 people showed up for the event from as far away as Great Britain, Canada, Hawaii, and New York.

Brian and I had a great time performing as Laurel and Hardy and the people on the tour couldn’t have been nicer. We even got to spend some time in a fabulous Model A – loaned to us by Brian’s friend, Art Tostado.

Reacting to the Laurel and Hardy fans coming towards us – I think Brian’s coffee just kicked in!

Well, here’s another fine mess you’ve gotten me into!

Congratulations to the Way Out West Tent in Los Angeles on their 40th Anniversary! It was a blast to be part of their fabulous weekend.

A big thanks to photographer Henry Han for covering the event. He is a top notch photographer and it’s no surprise that he took fabulous pictures, a few of which I’ve featured above.

In other news….The Verizon campaign is about to begin in mid-August – I don’t think you’ll be able to miss that. And the feature I worked on called “Change Your Life” is about to be released. So, I’ll keep you posted on that, too.

And being The Orkin Man continues to keep me busy! Remember – if you have bugs, bug them at www.Orkin.com

More later…
