I wanted to comment also on yesterday's news that Glenn Campbell entered an institution for Alzheimer's disease, and that's mainly because I'm genetically predisposed to the same condition. My dad died with it, and I'm starting to show symptoms. I'm putting y'all on notice that if you thought I was a pain in the ass know it all before, you ain't seen nothin' yet. I'm going to make use of what brains I got left as long as I got any left, and with no apologies.
Thank you to one particular person for putting effort into posting stuff he knew that I liked to sink my teeth into and take the ole time machine out on a run for, but that doesn't change the inevitable, I'm afraid. I really did enjoy the run, though, and thank you for that. One of these days I'll just have to write you a thank you note and slip it under that back door you mentioned.
And to another particular person, there'll be a day when I won't be able to recite my grievances against Mr. Ford, either, and I'm sure you'll be relieved...except you already know I'm not showing up--I didn't the last time you were in town. Genuine issues surrounding mental health and the history thereof are important to millions of people even if you're not on of 'em. Hasta la vista. Do yourself a favor: even if you've already seen it, rent out the movie "The Notebook" and see it again.
George, surgery is what fixed your situation but there's not a lobotomy big enough to fix mine. Yeah, we had a nice run, too. Remember me as I was, please.
Where I am, I am in good hands. Luvz ya all.
Sweet Caroline, we got a lot of catching up to do about Ardd, but that's a whole lot of old water under the bridge. I hear that you've been showing up at Linc's place again...but Ardd and Apple...dunno what to say, even still.
Falcon, I'll yank your chain in a different venue, as I will other folks I've not mentioned here.
Ha. Just now making the rounds on Facebook is an appropriate image for this segment. It's very true. The people I don't exactly know but who have made a point of making me smile feel like family even so.
This just in: Fred Waterer said that the dearly departed Bill had paid up the bills for Radio Scooter International right up to today, the 20th, and the future is uncertain. The Radio Time Capsule is being presented tonight as if it's the last show...and you're welcome, Fred, thanking me and George and Don and everybody by name on your show tonight. Louis Prima is now playing, via AFRTS on the One Night Stand program, 1944. GO LOUIS!
Hey Fred! Just for you--
Monday Mini-UPDATE: Just a note about seeing ole J.J. on the Dave Letterman show, talking about the PBS show "Pioneers of Television", and talking some about Norman Lear. J.J. mentioned an impressive list of Lear's shows, but left out one of my favorite spin-offs that went from All In The Family to The Jeffersons to the show that J.J. left out.
That would be 227, starring that lady who was the Bunker family's mouthy maid. I've been a long time fan of Marla Gibbs. She rocks.
