All New Dating Game

Flash back to 1986 and watch Tom on the All New Dating Game (staring Elaine Joyce).

Tom competes with future actor Eamonn Roche and glass blower Adrian Cervantes for the affections of pre-med student Michele Fimbres.

While Tom did not win (he argues that Michelle was confused), the winners got to attend Winterfest in Ft. Lauderdale with Willard Scott. Here is a newspaper clip from the time:

— A California couple won a four-day trip to Fort Lauderdale for appearing on The (All New) Dating Game. Michele Fimbres, an 18-year-old freshman at the University of Southern California, chose as her date Adrian Cervantes, 22, a glass blower at Sea World. The couple and their chaperone, Jacqueline Waite, stayed in oceanfront rooms at Marriott`s Harbor Beach Resort. They were whisked by limousine to the city`s boat parade, where they boarded Old Peculier, one of the lead boats.

Tristan’s School Play

Tristan played Peter Pan in his nursery school’s production of “True Colors”, a ensemble play created by his teacher, Judy Tonkel. In the play, the class goes on a trip to a museum where the students imagine they are characters from the various paintings they see. Characters from the Wizard of Oz, Peter Pan, Cinderella and Red Riding Hood appear in the play.

Mommy. daddy, Kate, William, Grandma and Aunt Debbie were in the audience.

The entire class had a great time, although there were some moments of stage fright. Congratulations to all!
