So, on a rainy day this past week, I found myself sitting on the floor, cleaning out the bottom drawer of my chest of drawers! Kinda a Willy-Nilly type day for me of treasures from the past all grouped together...And you thought this was gonna be a stinky
poo post, didn't you? If you're a devoted follower of Hootin' Anni's, you may remember me posting a little about this long ago...I apologize if it bores you with a repetitious posting. Anyway, while digging into the mess, I found some treasures of nearly 20 years ago. Has it been that long ago? Yes, indeed. Back in 1995, living in Tucson AZ, I read an article in the local newspaper that Hollywood was looking for movie extras that was going to be, in part, filmed in our area. At the time, I was bored. Bud was planning on spending an entire day watching football on TV. It was a Sunday, and I figured I had nothing to lose. So, I drove to the building that was directed to anyone interested in town and sat and waited my turn for taking of my mug shot! Months later, even after I had forgotten all about my little adventure, I was called and was told I had a part as an EXTRA in the movie T!n Cup, starring K. C0stner and more well-knowns. I was elated. Not for being an extra, but for getting a chance to see how a movie was made more-or-less...a 'behind the scenes' look if you will.

The last day, I took a felt tip pen and a plain gray t-shirt with me. During breaks in filming, I got some autographs. Including Mr. C's!!! Anyway, to make a long story short. It was a fun, but dreadful hours to awaken and drive in the dark for those three days. I could tell you about the last day of filming in our area when I left in my car and followed K's limo back into Tucson. The limo turned off on the Miracle Mile exit. Ummmmm, then, so did I even tho it was far from my own exit to home north of Tucson. Just out of curiosity, I wanted to know where they were headed if my hunch was correct....it was. But I won't tell y'all at all about the Miracle Mile back in the 90s. It has now been 'cleaned up' since last I heard, but not back then.
The thing I remember most of the experience? R. Russo's laughter! She was so charming!!
Some of the treasures from my drawers I photographed to share:
