Oh, Rob

We recently binged on A&E's latest celebrity-searches-out-the-unexplained-reality series, "The Lowe Files".  Viewers get to tag along with Rob and his sons hitting the road to see what's out there.  It's a typical cable channel ghost/alien/bigfoot expedition show. If you're a fan it's worth checking out...otherwise, maybe not so much,

Anywhoo, episode one of The Lowe Files took the guys to Ione, CA to do some ghost hunting at the old Preston School of Industry (aka The Castle).  Preston Castle was a large boy's reformatory school -- a dreary, stark gothic institution opened in 1894 and was abandoned in 1960. A pretty spooky place.  Outfitted with an assortment of paranormal detection devices they spend an entertaining evening in the old place.

Inspired by the show and the imposing and semi-derelict building, TSG hit the road looking to follow in the footsteps of Matthew. John Owen and their dad.  We even got a snap of Fancy Donuts in Galt, where Rob and the boys stopped for a bite to eat on the way.

Pretty Funny

As we are wont to do, spurred by idle and random curiousity about Peter Sellers' character in Being There, TSG googled "Chauncey Gardener" a few minutes ago.
The search results page proved to be quite humorous. To us, anyway:

In case you're wondering, this image is an un-retouched screen shot.
Your mileage, should you attempt the same search from wherever you happen to be, may vary.
