I have always encourage everyone to plan on visiting all 50 states during their life. I am currently at 49 (lacking Montana) and managed to visit over 45 of them while of business.

Now that is a goal I would like to achieve for myself. It will probably have to wait until retirement, though.

Ahhh, the Rocky Horror Picture Show.

I worked in one of the last single screen theaters in the New Orleans area when I was in high school and every Friday and Saturday night at midnight they showed the Rocky Horror Picture Show.

Memories . . .

I used to go in my marching band uniform!

Notice how proud I am of that, even to this day!

I once watched RHPS at home with a couple friends. It was NOT the same-- especially since one of them was a "virgin".... This film is best done in large groups.

By the way, I pity the people who had to clean up after that one was shown.... God bless ya. I bet you never want to see toast or playing cards ever again.

I wasn't on the clean up crew luckily. But I did have to protect the screen when Janet sang "Toucha toucha touch me" otherwise people would run up to fondle the giant boobs.

We used to also run around squirting out lighters with water pistols when she sang "There's a light"
