One for the Cable Guy

Last year a cable guy was here to fix things and a story came of it:
http://austanspace.blogspot.com/2011/07/perfect-explanation.html

Here was the pic of Greg in 74

I don't have the pic of Strider in the computer, but it's b&w and from a few years ago.

This has become a running joke and I considered telling Greg the story but there just wasn't the time or place for such a thing. But yesterday when I showed Gal Friday this pic of Strider, Greg and me


She busted a gut remembering the cable guy.
I almost want to call for service so he can see this one.

(And that's the sig that'll be the tattoo, too.)
(All these photos have been color-adjusted and cropped by our Stevil, btw.
Thanks, Bunky!)

Big smiles here. And it looks as if it will be an amazing tatt. What a shame that the time was not right to tell Greg that story.

You know what??? It's funny though....she does sort of resemble him around the eyes...lol.

And don't forget, clicking on the picture enlarges it so you can get a better look at that signature!

When Roz saw the pic, she asked if "he was her musical daddy". LOLOL! It reminded me of the cable guy story completely. ;)

EC- Now I wish I had more presence of mind and told Greg a few things! I hope there'll be a next time.

Great picture! When are you going to get the tat?

Austan said...

Lawless- that's what cracks me up, she really could be "our love child"!

Austan said...

Stevil- and see that hammy cook's arm get even bigger!

Austan said...

Carrie! In NYC, "musical" is a euphemism for "gay". Hahahahahah!!!! Roz is a riot. :D

Austan said...

Arleen- 1 o'clock our time!

CarrieBoo said...

You're kidding? Hahahahahahahahahaha!!!

It'll make a nice tat. Is Strider getting one as well?

Well, did you get the tat, Mizz Birthday Girl who is, what turning 15 today she looks so very young??????
Happy B-Day, Austan! Delores is spreading bday wishes all over blogland. Isn't she the nicest person EVER?
Have you got cake to share? Huh?
I have to be honest - I was wondering who the hot Greg Lake guy was - had to google him. Am appalled that I didn't know the ELP connection. Possibly because I'm more EEP than ELP.
So show us the tat!!!!!
And HAPPY BIRTHDAY! OXOXOXO

TSB- Nope, only her mama is that crazy. ;)

Cathy! I wish I was 15 again! lol Thank you! Yes, Lawless is a gem and she's ours!
I'll have a pic of the tat up next week, when it's healed.
(And don't feel bad about not knowing who Greg is, nobody knows Prog ever existed these days) xox
