I'm sorry I under estimated you....my faithful readers. I really didn't think you'd know who my mystery man is.
Yet.....you did!! Yup......it's R. Lee Ermey....the Gunnery Sergeant, foul mouthed drill instructor from the famous movie Full Metal Jacket.
He was in Asheville preparing the final touches on his new show - Lock N' Load which will premier on the History Channel - Friday July 31 PM ET. (Though the crew told us there's been talk of pushing it up a week earlier....so watch your listings.)
After watching to be sure he was finished with his lunch.....I turned and politely asked whether I could take his picture to post to my blog. He couldn't have been nicer.....he slid over on the bench.....patted it and invited me to sit down....instructing me to turn my camera over to his director to take our picture.....I was flabbergasted!
To learn more about this character......click here - don't miss his recipe section......it's great, as is his bobble head action figure!
