Sometimes you run into people you worked with 36 years ago & neither person recognizes the other

There I was Monday with my father-in-law at an acrylic and plexiglass fabrication shop in Toledo where we were going over the six pieces we needed cut to complete the acrylic stage of my basement build. We were chatting with the owner, who entered the sizes into his computer. There was small talk about what we were up to with the pieces, saw cut edges vs. frosted edges, etc.

Then the owner looks at my father-in-law’s jacket with a logo for Fermi, the nuclear powerplant just south of Detroit where he retired from in 2020 as an HVAC engineer, and says, “I know a guy who works at Fermi…Joe Bosnyak.”

There’s a pause out of all of us. It was like straight out of Impractical Jokers. Were we being pranked here? How did that guy just pull that name out of thin air?

My father-in-law, stunned, says, “I’m Joe Bosnyak.”

The shop owner’s jaw about hit the floor. It turns out the two of them worked together over 36 years ago at a diesel truck shop where my father-in-law was a mechanic before getting his engineering degree.

The acrylic shop owner looks at me and says, “You didn’t tell me your last name when you called the other day.” Well, that’s because I married his daughter.

The two old work buddies shared a few old stories, Jeff told one of his workers to throw our order on the CNC machine, and we had our countertop, A/V door acrylic piece, and shelves out the door in about an hour. Jeff also insisted on government pricing on the order. The friends and family discount.

I guess the lesson in all this is you just never know when and where you’re going to run into people who’ve played a role in your life. It could be at a bar while you’re sucking down drafts, or it could be in a cinderblock building along a stretch of nondescript industrial buildings while having acrylic pieces cut for basement projects.

“I always wondered what happened to him,” my father-in-law said after we left. “He was way too smart to be doing janitorial duties at the shop.”

It turns out Jeff went and taught himself how to program CNC jobs and make a career out of cutting and fabricating acrylic.

โ€ข While chatting with Jeff after the ice had been broken between these old work buddies, I learned that he spent 2020 pumping out thousands of sneeze shields for department stores, banks, restaurants, etc. Tens of thousands of sneeze shields. He’s still making them. Here was a guy just going about his business, which he started in 1985 after leaving the diesel truck shop, who said his world changed in February 2020 when a guy walked through the door and asked for a plexi-sneeze shield. He didn’t realize what was happening at the time, but it was the start of the great plexiglass COVID movement.

You could see it on Jeff’s face. It’s been an overwhelming 20 or so months of his life. You can also tell he is grateful for the business, but he’s at an age where he’d like to get back to fabricating acrylic pieces for boat owners and other challenges.

โ€ข Douglas J. in Omaha checks in with some photos:

Hopefully some more screencaps content for you.  We were driving around Omaha on Sat and my friend grabbed the picture of the skeletons.  

My parents were in town all week last week from Las Vegas, so we were driving down to Lincoln for the PBR (Professional Bull Riders), my parents first time watching bull riding, when we saw this gem pass us on the freeway.  I sped up to get beside him and my mom grabbed this photo.  I tried to zoom in and crop it for you but you pick which one you like better. 

Anyway, you might want to save this one for a couple of weeks and post it when Ohio State comes to Nebraska.  You can’t tell from the photo but it is a NE license plate.  I know you love the Buckeyes, but outside Ohio, no one likes them.  Would love to see the Huskers beat the Buckeyes, but would love it, even more, to see Michigan do it so I won’t have to see how many days it has been since Michigan has beaten the Buckeyes…at least for 1 year.

I hope the weather is good this Thursday so I can give you one more league night from Omaha.  

โ€ข Stros fan Chris B. in Texas wants to make sure we all know that the anti-Biden rap song “Let’s Go Brandon” has reached the top spot on iTunes.

โ€ข New emailer Brendan G. wants in on the high school football stadium discussion started by Bill C.

Joe,

You probably don’t get many e-mailsย from San Franciscans given the focus of OutKick and the fact that NorCal is a college football wasteland (I’m a native San Franciscan married to a Texas Aggie and explanted to Dixie, and it makes me laugh to remember all the adults from my youth talking about how important The Big Game [the annual Cal-Stanford rivalry game] was).

Anyway, you should check out Kezar Stadium in San Francisco. Kezar is a 10,000 seat stadium on the eastern edge of Golden Gate Park in the heart of San Francisco that serves as the home stadium for Sacred Heart Cathedral Prep, the site of the annual Turkey Bowl City Championship football game between the SF public high schools, and the site of the annual Bruce-Mahoney Rivalry game between St. Ignatius College Prep and Sacred Heart Cathedral Prep (you should check it out–it’s the oldest high school rivalry west of the Mississippi between the two oldest Catholic high schools in SF who play for a trophy named after alums of both schools who died in the service of our country during WWII).

Kezar was the home stadium for the 49ers up until 1971 and the (autumn wind is a) Raiders for a brief period in 1960; it has a ton of pop culture significance as well. The stadium was a concert venue for some of the greatest acts of the 60’s and 70s (Led Zeppelin, The Dead, Bob Dylan) due to its proximity to the Haight-Ashbury Neighborhood of Counterculture fame, and the stadium was prominently features in the film Dirty Harry featuring the peerless Clint Eastwood as SFPD Inspector Harry Callahan (the movie’s serial killer antagonist is the groundskeeper for the stadium and lives below the bleachers leading to a chase scene that takes place in the stadium).

Keep up the great work. It’s become a morning ritual to log into OutKick so ScreenCaps can go ahead and make my day (no pun intended).ย 

โ€ข It turns out Kezar Stadium was the site of the 1970 NFC Championship game and was used to film scenes for Dirty Harry in 1971 after the 49ers left for Candlestick Park. It also became a big time concert venue in the mid-1970s. In 1989, the original stadium was demolished and replaced with what you see today, a 10,000 seat stadium primarily used for high school football in the heart of San Francisco.

โ€ข While we’re on the topic of California readers, Mike in Pasadena sent an email thanking me for mixing it up with the Instagram models.

Also kudos to the Dad @ the 49r’s game with his boys – I remember being at Soldiers Field – zero degrees out feet and hands frozen…I’ll never forget that time with my Pops. 

โ€ข Mike was complimenting my work, but Zach S. isn’t so happy with me right now.

I enjoy your screencaps daily, but some of these insta models have had more work done ot them than my golf cart.  Just saying…

โ€ข As always, I’m more than willing to take IG requests. You send the suggestion, I keep you anonymous and we all just have a great time around here. I know Zach’s just giving me grief because he wanted to show off his golf cart. I can respect that move.

โ€ข Finally this morning, Indy Daryl has a lifehack for those of us who want to know which NFL game we’ll receive.

On the subject on knowing what game you are going to get on Sunday or any other day of the week I suggest

506sports.com

By Thursday it is updated with what states and areas are getting what football game.

Hope it helps

โ€ข There you go, Screencaps readers helping Screencaps readers. That’s what this is all about. By the way, I was looking at the site stats this morning and it’s never been clearer — Screencaps is a massive success. Over 200k people have enjoyed Sunday’s edition featuring Elizabeth Hurley.

Keep passing the word.

  1. Kiana Tom !!! YIKES, there’s a blast from the past! … Who was the Israeli guy that also had an exercise show on ESPN about the same time?

    Wanna bet old Kiana Tom and Denise Austin reruns would get more viewers than Stephen A and all other ESPN ranters ???
