I've been going through the 400 photos I took in New Orleans earlier this month. I keep finding chestnuts I forgot I had.

Like the Georgia Music Hall of Fame exhibit in Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.

There were lots of great items in there - I'll share pics of them later this week - but the true gem was this rare artifact:


Who do those boots, vest, hat and guitar belong to?

"Smokey and the Bandit" co-star Jerry Reed.


Born in Atlanta, Reed is probably best known these days as Coach Red Beaulieu in "The Waterboy."

Back in the day when I was growing up, he had a string of hits, including "When You're Hot, You're Hot" (1971) and "She Got the Gold Mine (I Got the Shaft)" (1982).

One thing I didn't know until I did a little research: Jerry Reed was a guest star on "Scooby Doo."

My 5 year-old is a Scooby-Doo fanatic. I've seen that Jerry Reed episode a few times. I may even have it deep in the depths of the ol' Tivo. :| Somehow it always seemed odd that the Mystery Gang would find Jerry so "hip", but I've found it's good not to ask too many questions when watching Scooby Doo. (especially "why is the animation so terrible?!" and "why doesn't anyone obey the laws of physics?" and "can they really feed Scooby and Shaggy on the money they make from solving mysteries?")
