Twiggy The Water Skiing Squirrel







I hate to say it but the star of the St. Cloud Sportsmen's Show was Twiggy, the Water Skiing Squirrel. Sorry Ted Takasaki and Jimmie Lindner but the rodent drew larger crowds than you guys did.


The sport show was busy but I had to see for myself what all the hubbub was about the water skiing squirrel. I waited until the last performance to see the show within the show. For all of you who are little bit older Twiggy first shot to fame with his appearance on "Real People" back in 1979. Since then he has appeared in all media including the "Tonight Show". So I'm thinking to myself how old can Twiggy be? Turns out that this was Twiggy Number 8. I had flashbacks to the horror of finding out when I was a kid that I didn't meet the original Lassie but rather Lassie Number 4. Anyway, Twiggy donned his life jacket, a great example to all the kids and parents alike, and jumped into to pool and proceeded to be towed around by a remote controlled miniature boat. Quite the professional. It almost seemed like Twiggy was waving to the crowd as he jumped the wake from the little boat.


It was a great sport show and Jane and I enjoyed our visits with old friends and with people who can't wait to visit the Land of the Midnight Sun.

I met Lassie when dad brought me to a sport show. Way before your time, little sister.

Not sure where to post this but I wanted to ask if anyone has heard of National Clicks?

Can someone help me find it?

Overheard some co-workers talking about it all week but didn't have time to ask so I thought I would post it here to see if someone could help me out.

Seems to be getting alot of buzz right now.

Thanks
