One Golden Boy Short

I’m sure all of you are wondering what we do when one of our Golden Boys is missing from one of our functions. That’s easy. We replace him. There are two ways we replace a Golden Boy. One is with our back-up Golden Boy, Ozzy. (No, not the singer, but another of our friends with a nickname.

The other way we replace a Golden Boy is with a cardboard cut-out. Gooby is very technically inclined and using pictures of me from 8th grade and one from high school graduation he created two life size card board cut-outs of my head and shoulders. By all reports my card board cut-outs have had a lot more fun than I have on some Golden Boy weekends.

One year, I was unable to travel to Connecticut for Chuck’s wedding, but if you watch Chuck’s wedding video there I am, from the shoulders up, dancing with bridesmaids, sitting at the head table and hanging out at the bar. The pics in this post are actually freeze frame images taken from Chuck’s wedding video. Needless to say that Mrs. Chuck was none too pleased with the prominence of my cardboard likeness at the reception.

Last year Gooby was unable to make it to our Golden Boys trip to Florida, but his head made it and accompanied us everywhere getting his picture taken with women all over south Florida.

Have a great Sunday! ~Phil

  1. Hate to bother you, but I still need your e-mail address if the 28th is a go.johnhowell (dot) wave(at)

  2. Hilarious! I think I might need to start doing this for family functions. My hubby couldn’t make it to Lake George with us the other week. It would have been awesome to have his cardboard head there.

  3. This would be good to use for functions you dont want to attend. Having a fat day send a slender mate to the wicked cousins wedding wearing the cardboard head. Arrive a bit late and when the Aunt twice removed asks why you are wearing it, prime stand-in to grab her head both sides (tragedy dance style) sob as she runs to the bathroom. If Aunt tells her fears to someone they will think her inebriated or suffering dementia. Thus getting your own back on wicked Aunt and winning family points for being in the photos. Great post golden boy *snorts*
