Dang, Magnum PI got old and ugly. Talk about ugly these thugs they had as security at Turning Stone (gosh I hate that place), man they were some ugly ones. Those Injuns scare me though, I thought they were gonna scalp me the wat they was looking at me. The food is too expensive. Utica was cool, man I'm tired.
Peace, Mr. Sloss.

Definitely Bonaduce because he was in a show with a character that gave me and Puppetboy's band our name.

Tim Kisper said...

Are you a relative of Richard "Dick" Bemis of Utica, NY?

Rob Bemis said...

No, all the Bemis's are Worchester stock, born and bred, near the Game Borough.

Hey Puppetboy,
What are you too busy painting Naimh's hair to post on your own blog? Why don't you regal us with tales of giving Tanya Donnelly an elephant? Don't make me look up your real name in the Bible. Like Joe Rockhead, nobody likes me, nobody laughs at my jokes.
