Martin Mull/Ski Patrol

At dinner one night a friend asked me if I was going to finish qualifying for ski patrol. I explained to him that I had recently purchased a season Ski pass for the first time in three years and my goal was to “get back on the horse”.  (We suffered the tragic death of our 13 year old son Cameron in 2014, Cameron had been my ski buddy since he was 5 yrs old. After his death I dropped out of a ski patrol class and stopped skiing for several years) The following night while falling asleep and in a “half dream” state Martin Mull’s face  vividly and suddenly appeared in my mind. At first I couldn’t even recall the name of this somewhat obscure comedic actor of the 80s and 90s. Two days later I was at the dentist getting my teeth cleaned. As I channel surfed cable TV in the dental chair I commented to the hygienist how much crap there is on daytime TV. A moment later I landed on a station showing a Movie with the caption – “Ski Patrol/ Martin Mull!” I will be skiing again this winter but haven’t signed up for the Ski Patrol Class…
