Every spring millions of men are coaxed, threatened, asked, and coerced into cleaning the garage and house. It is also know as spring cleaning. This year my wife and I started in the garage. As we pulled all the garbage out of the garage and sorted it into piles of keep, trash, and goodwill, I came across several custom Jones soda bottles.
I was immediately asked if I needed these. To be honest I didn't. The contents of the bottles were several years old, so, I was definitely not going to drink it. However, these bottles had lots of sentimental value.
They were a cast gift to me from a 2003 production of "Art" that I directed. During that show the cast, and crew all drank a lot of Jones soda. So, the fact that they had Jones create a custom label was really cool. Also, this group of people really means a lot to me. There are those special shows, and casts that just stick with you, and always hold a special place in your heart. This is one of those.
So, as I took those bottles to the trash I thought, "I need to hold on to these for posterity." The picture above is my effort to remember and preserve that time in my life. I just wanted to share it with you too.
