The Dude on the Right
Sometimes Stu Gotz and I struggle to find anything to talk about because our
weekends, respectively, are boring, but for whatever reason the cosmos’ collided
suddenly we generated a 20+ minute podcast about our past weekend. I
mean, who knew doing some painting in a garage could be so exciting over the
entire weekend, and so full of stories, at least for Stu & Mama Gotz? Stu
also re-remembered the joy of attending the Kane County Cougars – minor league
baseball in a western suburb of Chicago, and found a new/old Jimmy Buffett song.
There was also a health scare in the Gotz family, but happily all is well!
Me, I gave Stu my take on seeing
"The Happening," mostly wondering why myself and Richard Roeper seem to be
liking some of the same movies lately, even though sometimes for different
reasons, and let Stu know that even though
"The Incredible Hulk" marketing is in full force, much like
"Indiana Jones and The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" it might just be best
to buy the little Gotz’s the Hulk toys for them to create stories with their own imagination,
rather than give them nightmares by seeing a giant, green dude beat the
daylights out of numerous people on the movie screen.
For me, though, my
largest portion of the podcast gives Stu my tales of meeting some of the family
of my BFF, but most importantly her Mom and Dad. It was a Father’s Day
celebration for her family, but, for me, it was part "inquisition" (as it should
be) and part "Norman Rockwell Family Gathering," and way different than most, if
any, of this Dude’s family gatherings, especially since no one went to go and
see a movie after dinner. But, to all of the members of the family of my
BFF that I did meet and might be reading this, I want to give all of you a
shout-out for making me feel welcome, and hopefully my right wrist will heal by
the next family gathering so I can play some guitar, although I have a feeling
I’ll have some kind of finger ailment on my left hand by then, and maybe
That’s it for this one! I’m The Dude on the Right!! L8R!!!
