Poodles, a station wagon and Downton Abbey?

On my TV viewing docket for Thursday night will be a special one-hour "Parks and Rec" episode.

I like the show, and I especially like the character Ron Swanson, who plays up being a no nonsense "man's man" character.

I guess he must be a pretty good actor because the news I learned about the man today is nothing like the character he plays on the show.

His real name is Nick Offerman and he is doing a live comedy show in Milwaukee this weekend. Because of that there was an article in the paper about him which disclosed some facts about NICK that certainly are nothing like my image of RON on the show.

--He drives a station wagon he picked out because it had the highest safety rating he could find.
(I picture Ron as a guy with a rusty old pickup truck in bad need of a new muffler)

--He and his wife have three poodles...not exactly the kind of dog you would think a Ron Swanson would own.
(I picture Ron with some type of hunting dog with a slobber problem)

--And one of his favorite TV shows is Downton Abbey on PBS.
(Can you say the Red Green Show?)

What insane Ron Swanson news will I hear next....he actually prefers salads?????

Wishing you and yours as happy a Thanksgiving as that turkey is having in the picture. Associate producer "Z-Bart" will…
