Here's a bit of a wayback ride, The James Brown Celebrity Hot Tub!
There were days when we had time and energy to emulate those who were comically imitating masters of entertainment, way back when I was in high school. Ol' Tad and
I would deck out his hot tub with incense and bring out the food, inviting everyone who would come to our own little 'celebrity hot tub'. It was just too hot in the hot tub, back then. Good memories, indeed.
