Won’t you be my neighbor?
For the past several months, probably even more than a year now, there is a section of west Beaumont that is undergoing a major transformation. There are developers in the process of building homes, shops, a theater, etc. in this certain section of the Westend. There is a fence that surrounds the entire area and that fence is sprinkled with various advertisements for different area realtors and other interested parties. There is this one real estate lady and every time I drove by her sign I knew she reminded me of someone. Well I finally figured it out and I just about fell out of my chair when it hit me. I know it isn’t nice to make fun of people but this is about as perfect as it gets when it comes to “celebrity” look-alikes.
Everyone remembers when the trolley would come whistling out of the wall on Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood and we would all be whisked away to the neighborhood of make-believe. King Friday and all of his subjects like Daniel Striped Tiger, Henrietta Pussycat and X the Owl. I remember Daniel Striped Tiger had been trained to not bite anyone and he only bit his food. Anyway, there was also Lady Elaine Fairchilde and her lack of self confidence. Lady Elaine was always a bit creepy to me. She had those really red cheeks and that long red nose. Something about her gave me the heeby jeebies if you will. Well Lady Elaine brings me to my previous topic of the local real estate lady. In my opinion they could be sisters. What do you think?
Again, I know it isn’t nice to make fun of people, but seriously the resemblance is uncanny! And speaking of Mr. Rogers and look-alikes, what about Harry Connick Jr. and Mr. Rogers himself?
Funny stuff. By the way, what ever happened to You Cant Do That on Television? Oooooooooh Alisdair? And…”Ready, aaaiiiim…Wait!…Stop the execution…” (the firing squad) That was a funny show. Oh well, I don’t know. (I just got slimed.)
