Puff in a Hollywood movie

Well kinda'.
I contract work for a recovery company. They recover burned and flooded homes, disaster relief kind of stuff.
Most of the work is in Detroit. Accidental fire no big deal, totally gutted on the inside which is good for me. Anyhow I show up yesterday and there is a bunch of "Orange construction barrels" which isn't uncommon in this state.
So I blow it off and drive around. I get to the job and the board hangers asked me if I saw the commotion down the street? It seems Mr. Clint Eastwood is filming a movie here.
I did a "Drive by" today and took some pics. They have a whole block full of trucks tents and trailors set with a backdrop of a ...well....pretty bad neighborhood. (I-75 and the "Davidson freeway".....which was one of the first freeways built in this state.)
There was alot of fuzz there today. I think tommorow I might walk down to the site. If I get past the "rent a cops" I'll let you all know.
With a face like mine I believe it belongs on film.
The second pic of you can see it is a burned out home above the truck. I don't think they burned it for the film. I do believe I saw the top of Clint's head.
Tommorow I'll be undercover. Let's see how far I'll get.

Clint's cool. we had lunch once but there was some robbers
who came in and he took em down....kind of killed the mood.
After that, I stayed away. Seems like wherever he goes, trouble
breaks out.

BTW, some of those RentaCops are pretty tough. I tried to cook
for Sissy Spacek one time, and they roughed me up, but good.

Me and Clint are old friends. Back in my younger days we did a movie together, Any Which Way But Loose. Tell him Clyde said Hello.

I am generally not impressed by famous people.

I will be very impressed if Puff gets by all the badges.
