When Time Ran Out... (1980) (part 4 of 8)

The next day, Hank and Tiny are ready to tour the “fire hole” up at the volcano. Appropriately, Hank’s in cowboy clothes and Tiny’s in George Pappadopolous clothes. The two men step inside the Volcano Observation Post and Hank yells hello. Bob and the scientist guy from before come to greet them. Bob and Hank formally shake hands (do you do that a lot with friends?) and Bob introduces Hank to the scientist guy, John Webster. Now this is just getting weird! First Champ, then Mona, now Webster!

“You’re in big trouble this time, Webster!”

Hank proves that oil drillers are the most know-it-all people on earth (and therefore ideal saviors) by telling Webster he read his piece in a scientific journal and found it very impressive. Okay. I’m convinced. Those oil repositories? Filled with the sum total of all Oil Man Knowledge!

If I was a bad movie, I'd find it much easier to write about myself than I do at present. My main interests outside of really bad movies is playing music. I've played guitar for 15 years, performed before far more people than I'm really comfortable with and am currently having fun listening to my 5 year old son bang away on his new starter drum set. Yes, drummers are so hard to find, I had to resort to making my own. When not playing music, I also like to work in my yard and many gardens, try new recipes (never would have thought that would happen), research my genealogy (I get to be related to the beheaded king and queen of France!) and read history books primarily about natural disasters and personal tales. And when I'm not doing any of that, then I'm spending time with my great family. The first movie I remember going to the theater to see was The Black Stallion which we were late to the beginning of and as we were waiting for it to begin again and rewatch it (is that even legal?) we got dragged away by my dad and sister who insisted we come watch Airplane! with them in the other theater. Oh, and I cried so hard at the end of Oh, Heavenly Dog! that my sister had to call my mom to come pick me up. As a kid, I never had a Big Wheel. I still want one.
