Anyhow. When I was little, one of the many careers I was sure I was destined to have was that of an artist, specifically a painter. I took my inspiration from Bob Ross. (Mind you, I also wanted to be a ballerina, a superhero, a nurse, and an actress, all by the age of 5.)
Around the age of 8, I realized that not being able to draw a circle round, and getting more paint on the floor than I got on the canvas, that this probably wasn't a good career choice. But that was after many years of Bob.
So, back to the trivia. No doubt if you watched PBS re-runs in the early 1980s you know about Bob Ross and his amazing hair and his happy trees. (You might even say "happy accident"without even knowing that he coined the phrase.)
But did you know that he had been a drill sergeant for 20 years? Mr. RK informed me of this today, right after showing me this video. Somehow, he became an afro-wearing, vegetarian painter who fed baby squirrels on his TV show.
Wouldn't you like to have been inside his head for that one?
