Sing along...People let tell me 'bout my besssst friend.."

Remember that one? I think it was from The Courtship of Eddie's Father....with Bill Bixby

..pre Hulk days....
(note to the younger readers...yes..Bill Bixby played the "Hulk"...)

(Note to even younger readers...he was an actor who did a few things on TV in the 70's.. He worked on the following series: The Courtship of Eddie's Father, The Magician, The Incredible Hulk and The Love Boat. ("The Love Boat...,exciting and new.......Come aboard....We're expecting you. ..)

Wha..?? Why do I remember that and I can't remember what I had for breakfast??

Anyway, I got to thinking about friends today. I have so many more now that I have started blogging.

Friends I would never have know in far away places..and some close by!

So, I thought I'd have you think about your friends....

...Or old TV shows...or what you had for breakfast..

Or what you did with all the money your Mother gave you for singing lessons.....

Have a fun Wednesday and remember... in the words of Archie Bunker....

"I got a lotta best friends. Some o' them I don't hardly know.. "

Yep, I'm back again. Glad to see you stopped by earlier.

One more common note that makes me smile ... my dad was Irish (and still is, I'm certain, though he's long gone). My maiden name was far too difficult to hyphenate, and I always told my dad I'm be named Smith when I grew up, and that's exactly what happened.

Last weekend, while going through some boxes from my mom's house that I'm storing at my office/studio, I found letters to my dad from *his* dad, written right before his 7th birthday, in 1921. My hands shook as I stood in the garage reading them, realizing I was holding a message that was more than 80 years old, and had been lovingly held by both my father -- as a child -- and by my great grandfather, who I never knew.

Another thing to scan and get online when I have the time.

I love those pictures. Cute cute! And, of course, especially the one of the sleeping cat. A sleeping any animal immediately lowers my blood pressure. I want to just kiss 'em.
