Not So Fat Man in a Bathtub

Following the 1983 fire at Buzzy's Country Store, much of the furniture and various items in the building were moved outside while re-construction efforts commenced.  That explains the above photo of Buzzy posing in the bathtub.

Buzzy was never fat but I couldn't resist the pairing of this old photo with the classic Little Feat song:

Great back story as to what Lowell was talking about in Fat Man (click here.)  There is a D.C. connection too as the recorded version of Fat Man on their Waiting for Columbus album was done at GW's Lisner Auditoriun in August 1977 (click here.)
