Mom, Dad, Lisa (John's wife of 13 years), Eric (AKA the Goat), and I visited the film set on October 7, 1994. For a companion post to tomorrow's festivities, Here are a handful of photos from that day.

The production was very low budget. All the signs on the LLV Burbank studio were just like this one. Look at what a dork I was!
Director's chairs for Shue and Cage.
* * *The only person missing that day was John, but only in the physical sense. Although I am not a Shirley-Maclaine-metaphysics-floatie-
ether-type person, I honestly felt John's presence all around us that day. I guess the best way to include him here is with a photo. So here is a pic of John and me in what John called "The Obligatory Big Phone Picture" that was taken by Lisa in the Universal Studios theme park in summer of 1986.
Wish you were here, John.
