ABC Wednesday – M is for M & Ms
Make Merry and Make Music with the Man in the Mickey Mouse hat!
Meet Working Kirk Reeves, who according to his business card is a TV Producer and a Trumpet Player. The card says he appears on a local access station Thursday nights, with a program called "Low Comedy TV Show." While I've yet to tune in, I've seen Working Kirk, purveyor of Low Comedy in the Land of the Trumpet, many afternoons at this entrance ramp to the Hawthorne Bridge.
He gave me his card and said to take all of the pictures I wanted to take for my blog, then he started pulling entertaining stuff out of his bag. Drivers waiting to merge onto the bridge handed him paper money from their car windows as he kept up a steady change of pace, from music to puppets to juggling, smiling all the while. Today after work I noticed that he was wearing an umbrella hat instead of his Mickey Mouse hat--intermittent showers filled the forecast but not the skies, at that moment anyway.
