Lighthouse Collection #27

070208_ross_rick_ed_Bauer BBQIMG_0144As part of Bauer BBQ Week this year I have a special lighthouse collection report. While my collection is mainly made up of lighthouses that help me remember Guiding Light, sometimes other things make it into the collection too. I bought two items specifically to celebrate the Bauer BBQ this year. I found the first on Cafe Press. One of my favorite logos there is the phrase used repeatedly by Aunt Meta and Michelle and Rick during the Manny storyline – Bauer Power! A CafePress store has transformed it into a logo (specifically tagged as Guiding Light – I admit a lot of the Bauer stuff there is also from Jack Bauer on 24). So far I’ve bought a Bauer Power mug and this Bauer Power apron. Once I got it here, there was clearly only one thing to do, buy a chef’s hat. Chef’s hats are NOT normal BBQ wear, but when the big party version of the BBQ got started in the early 1980s, Ed was saddled with the chef hat as comic relief at the BBQ (Peter Simon hated wearing it and cheerfully passed it along to Michael O’Leary’s Rick as soon as possible). It has become the symbol of the BBQ.

There are several companies that make and sell chef hats, but this is where I got mine:
