Coincidence? I think not!

On October 24th 1981 I received a telex from Sandy Frank Productions in Los Angeles, CA USA confirming my employment for the position as field researcher for the television series, “You Asked For It” at the salary of $500 US per week. Aside from scouting locations in Indonesia, they asked me to take a screen test. The thought was I might be able to fill the role of reporter for the segments they had planned for my little corner of Southeast  Asia. I won’t bore you with the details, it’s in Therapeutic Misadventures. Suffice to say, the film is collecting dust somewhere since they did in fact, shoot film back then. I was marketing my company, a rag-tag bunch of creative locals and myself, and managed to keep us all paid for several months with the gig.

Last week,  I watched NH Chronicle aired a segment on Monadnock OIl and Vinegar as the result of my most recent stint of marketing. I was surprised they used some footage that included me. I finally had my 15 seconds of fame on the television. A special “shout out” to Dr.s Fritz and Moore for ably filling the roles of satisfied customers as well.

If you haven’t seen the clip, you must live outside my usual pestering zone of emails and Facebook posts. You can view it here, skip to the 4:41 mark to move past the mushroom lady in the first segment.

Whatever you do in this world comes back to you later in ways you can never imagine. Life is shorter than you think and what you do will be noted.
