I had CNBC on this morning in our bedroom while I was doing my post-run ablutions. I came out, brushing my teeth and did a DOUBLE TAKE and these thoughts flashed through my mind: “why is Anthony Weiner on TV, I thought he was in prison … why is Anthony Weiner doing a commercial? …. why would anybody be stupid enough to hire Anthony Weiner to do a commercial“.
Then I realized that it wasn’t actually Weiner.
Took me a second to work out that this must be the owner of Fisher Investments.
Then I felt BAD. Doesn’t he realize that he can be mistaken for Weiner. Hasn’t anybody told him that. Kind of spoils the whole commercial. Once the Weiner thought crosses your mind that commercial is toast.
Am I the ONLY one who sees this similarity — and I am acutely aware, from the hits I get here, that I saw a similarity between Frank Fritz Of ‘American Pickers’ and another jailbird.
Never mind. Ken Fisher is probably a billionaire and it doesn’t matter who he gets mistaken with.
Robert Gilbert, born in Australia and the owner of a nifty Mini Cooper, is a friend from “Great Waters“. Like I he is a volunteer stagehand and his wife ushers along with Deanna and Devanee. Robert and I, as owners of British cars (and I won’t mention the other cars he loves and owns), often chat about cars. While doing the setup for the “Glenn Miller Orchestra” on Friday, he told me, when I asked him what he had been up to since I last saw him a week ago, that he had been to the “Simeone Auto Museum” in Philadelphia. He appeared to be a bit disappointed that I did not know about it. Later on in the evening I did realize that I had indeed heard about it — on an episode of “American Pickers” that we used to watch religiously until we got our Roku 3and discovered the manifolds treats available via ‘Amazon Prime‘ such as “Downton Abbey” and “Mr. Selfridge“.
This morning Robert, who used to do mechanical instrumentation for nuclear plants and appears to be a gentleman of many talents, sent me a whole set of delightful pictures he had taken at ‘Simeone’. With his permission I am going to share some with YOU for your enjoyment and edification. Thank you, Robert. CLICK TO ENLARGE.
