coincidences

Recommended Posts

 I know this breaks Gibb's rule 39 but I think I ran across one today.

 I'd been hearing about this Tubi thing and decided to check it out.  Went to their site and just plugged in the name of a show I used to watch many years ago, "The joy of painting, with Bob Ross". I don't remember ever thinking about him or his show up until today. I was a happy camper to find out it was on there. I was dabbling in oils when I started watching him so watched every show I could.

 Now for the coincidence. I knew he was dead but pulled up his bio. and found out he died 25 years ago today. July 4, 1995. :dropjaw:

There are so many Bob Ross memes floating around on a daily basis that everyone knows who he is, even people that were not even alive when his show was on.

Happy Trees!

 I didn't know he was retired Air Force.  He got into painting while stationed in Alaska because he was so taken by the scenery up there.

We use one of his comments at work from time to time.   "We don't make mistakes, we have happy accidents."

He was a cool dude. So laid back and made painting look easy. I was reading his bio one time about his stint in the Air Force where he had a leadership role and would have to yell at people. He said once he left the service, he told himself he would never raise his voice to people again.

Can you imagine flipping channels one day and realizing your CO was THE Bob Ross

What would've been real funny is if he  could've had R.Lee Ermey as a guest and he would make a painting while talking like he did in Full Metal Jacket...😂
