"FOX": season two of the Mod Squad with Gary, Ben and Christi





















SO, as we saw yesterday in season one, our 3 badazz heroes took a road trip to Syracuse for some clay supplies and stopped at the sign of the pig for lunch, Dinosaur BBQ.
We are walking in the door, past a bunch of hard hats working on the front of the building, and the dude with the long ratty ponytail, beer belly and anarchist tee says "FOX!" I figured he probably wasn't talking about me, so Ben and Christi argued over who he meant. As you can see, it is unwise to mess with Christi. Unlike Julie in the real Mod Squad who may have just been EYE CANDY (MAN was she ever cute) seemingly tiny Christi has huge muscles and practices martial arts.
Aside from dumping the habenero sauce a little liberally upon my BBQ portobello burger, the rest of lunch at the biker bar was without incident. You could tell nobody wanted to mess with Christi.
Then for the clay, 550 pounds (car was riding a little LOW there), and lastly the Everson Museum where the upstairs gallery was closed but there are a MILLION pots to see on the lower levels, and finally, back home in the Bat Cave Christi glazed the bowls she made here last week.

Christi does look like a total cutie badass.

And I love love love those huge sculptural vases that are outside. Have any info on those? In the meantime, I try out my mad supergoogling skilz.
