    It's just really strange.

    Kathleen's working tonight so I've been thinking a lot about Phil.

    I mean, I hadn't seen the man in almost 30 years. But how many co-workers have you had, who spent breaks translating ancient Russian literature? In the bowels of Disneyland yet.

    I was a political science major in college, and much more conservative then than I am now. I was a staunch Ronald Reagan conservative, and Phil was the definition of a FDR-turned Jimmy Carter liberal Democrat. We spent time washing dishes, and pots, and ovens debating domestic policy, and whether the "New Deal" was just so much BS and only World War Two rescued us from the Depression...remember, I knew Phil from essentially 1976-1982.

    We wore whites like you see the street sweepers wear, with paper sanitary hats and big rubber boots because of the, well, water and such we had to stand in.

    Later, I was promoted to cook...and Phil became a Lead MKH (Miscellaneous Kitchen Help).
    He then became a Supervisor assistant, and at the time I left, he was making out schedules aqnd such. I hear that he became the kitchen's lead receiver, a very prominent full-time post, and he was one of the few still working there from those I worked with. Others are Raymundo Gill, now driving trams in the parking lot, and Alan Crowder, executive chef for Main Street and some of DCA.

    Phil, you were a special man indeed. RIP, old friend.
    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

    What an amazing person he must of been Barry, that even after all this time you still have such vivid memories of him and the time you worked together!

    Even though you get a real view of the other side of the magic, the so-called iron fist inside Mickey's glove, working at Disneyland would be unlike any other place you'd work in your life.

    The camaraderie of the crews, and so on...it's just different from other places where you work. At least that has been my experience.

    And yes, he was a pretty amazing guy - apparently right to the end.

    Meantime, I just got a jolt of sorts. In another thread, I saw this link to an OC Register story about a longtime Disneyland cast member, who died of natural causes while on the job.

    I saw the name. Phillip Doyle. Longtime in food services, New Orleans Square area.

    And then it hit me...Phil! Phil Doyle! A guy I knew and worked fairly closely with for about six years, before I left the park in 1982.

    Phil was a special guy, one of a kind as a I remember him.

    Talk about out of the blue.

    My prayers to his family, which I never met.

    My prayers to the crew he leaves behind. I am sure that Phil was loved by many, many people.
    My condolences and prayers to you and all who knew this obviously extremely special individual. There are some people that no amount of time or distance will ever let them leave your heart.

    Re: RCMC 110: Born to Gaze into Night Skies

    I am getting ready to watch the 4th game for the Bulls in the NBA playoffs. I also just finished putting down weed and feed on my lawn. My poor lawn is more weeds than grass. Next week sometime, I will probably have to mow it for the first time. The weather is supposed to get a little bit warmer.

    Happy Saturday everyone.

    Watching today's game at Wrigley Field. Looks like the sun's out today at least. The wind is blowing out. Hitters love it when the wind is blowing out, at Wrigley Field.

    Hope you are feeling better than the Bulls look at present.

    By the way, Phil Doyle didn't like spectator sports and we also debated about why I, or anyone else, should enjoy them. Bread and circuses, the downfall of society, he'd say..or some other such thing.

    What can I say? He was your typical misguided bleeding-heart 1970's Jimmy Carter Democrat...

    The Bulls lost today. I guess they can't pull off a miracle finish against the Indiana Pacers every game. Now the series returns to Chicago.

    Tomorrow the Blackhawks play, and hopefully if they win the series will be tied at three games each.

    I have lost 5 pounds from being sick. Not that I can't afford to lose 5 pounds, but I am sure as soon as I return to a more normal diet the scale will return to my normal weight.

    The old series Batman is on. I remember the first time the series was on. We laughed, at all the cartoon effects.
