I can remember the old "Dye Days" quite well. The chats...
the orange juice and ginger ales... binge-watching TBAA episodes
and John's movies before "binge-watching" was in common

Home and many of us have grown-up. Pulling all-nighters is
much harder than it used to be! Nonetheless, with this
newsletter, I wanted to try to recapture some of the fun of
those old Dye Days. Even though this date has a
bittersweetness to it now, I think John would want us to enjoy
it. And if I can't do a marathon of Campus Man, Mother,
Mother, "The Pact," "The Violin Lesson," "The
Journalist," and so on... at least I could look at photos!
John Dye Memory Game: Take
So I know previous newsletters have
featured this but the last time I did this, Season 5 on of

photo-side down, and see how well your spatial memory is
holding up. ;-) I've also included a PDF
for easier printing. For a bonus game, try to figure out
which movie/TV episode each photo is from. Or cut them
up irregularly and you have a versatile jigsaw puzzle!
