Here’s a full 180 degree departure from my norm around the bubble, but this thought came to mind and I just had to take a shot at it (maybe a partial pun intended!). When I was growing up, shows including Three’s Company, Happy Days, Hee Haw and All In The Family, to name a few, were staples in my afternoon and evening entertainment. There was one, however, that has remained near and dear to my heart, and that would be Welcome Back Kotter. Oh, how I loved tuning in to see what those lovable misfit Sweat Hogs were up to, forever wrangled by their misfit of a teacher, sweet, quirky Mr. Kotter. My favorite characters on the show were, of course, Mr. Kotter, and the impossibly handsome, charming, dreamboat, Vinnie Barbarino, aka John Travolta. Years after I rode my tricycle out of childhood, I came across these dolls on Ebay. How could I resist a walk back down TV memory lane? And so tonight I give you those goofy guys with hearts of gold and perhaps a brain cell or two between their fabulous heads… Mr. Kotter and Vinnie Barbarino! May the Sweat Hogs live on in reruns from here to eternity! :)

Shot with no flash inside my refrigerator… yes, you read that right… amazingly terrific lighting in there, oddly enough!

The world is full of magical photo ops…

All you need to grab them is a zest for life, an eye for the extraordinary and that trusty camera of your choice.

Raise the sturdy weight of it to your face … close one eye then … lower your finger upon the shiny black button… hold your breath then… hear that hypnotic click and suddenly, dynamite explodes! the stars collide! and maybe, just maybe you’ve captured a magnificent moment in time… How thrilling is that?!?

    Haha I remember that series, I loved it too Sis. I wish they would put it back on TV over here but we have not had that pleasure. I would never think to take a pic inside the fridge. I’ll have to try that. How creative you are girl!

  • Hey, Sis! Thanks for your wonderful comment and favorite!!! You really should check out the fridge lighting for fun. It really does an amazing job, oddly enough. :)
    All my best to you!!!
