We had tickets to see them last year when they came to Maine but I got sick. It's a long, sad story but we'll just gloss over the details and say I didn't get to see them. They're playing in Portland next month and I'd love to go, but finances are a bit tight right now and I can't justify tickets, gas and babysitter... maybe next year.
So I did this...It's my own Mike Cooley action figure. I might have issues.
Isn't his wee little guitar so cute? The original was painted by Wes Freed, of whom I am also a huge fan. I have a few of Mr. Freed's signed prints. I follow him on Facebook and I won them by guessing what the number painted on a license plate in the print meant. I'm not going to show you the print because it's a little naughty. Oh, the number is Myrt "Hubcap" Lesh's phone number. She was a car thief played by Ellen Corby on the Andy Griffith show, of which Mr. Freed is a huge fan (I bet her never made a Sheriff Andy action figure though). Ellen Corby is best known for playing Grandma Walton on the Waltons. These are the things I know. Sometimes they come in handy. Why are you running away from me?
