      1. I had only heard of this show. We didn't have a TV until 1960. Well, not counting the Heathkit my father assembled in 1957 with the round tube 90 degrees out of whack so you had to lie on your side to watch the only thing he would watch, the Gillette Cavalcade of Sports. He took it with him when they divorced a couple of months later, anyway.

  2. So ya know that joke where you say something and then add, "asking for a friend…" ?? Well I just had someone call me at work about a work-related thing, and do that. It was hilarious.

    It is a guy here in town who wants to start the process of doing a certain legal thing that is very complicated and that will have to be handled through me. He has told enough people about his intention for it to get back to me that I should expect him. I should mention that this person has serious mental issues and is probably homeless and picks fights with local homeless people, is known to the police for his "episodes," seems to think no one knows any of this about him and that people just see him as normal yet brilliant, when in reality people call around and warn other people that he's headed over.

    Well so today I have been waiting for him to call and say, "I want to sign up for the thing and so I need to take out my paperwork, please send it to me." and instead he said, "I know someone who would be great to sign up for the thing and will want to take out the paperwork so please tell me how to do it, I am asking for a friend."

    I may sound mean, but it was HILARIOUS.

    I answered his questions and he said, Oh GREAT THANK YOU I WILL TELL MY FRIEND and that was the end of the call.
