I, too, will miss Uncle Miltie. I'm new here but I s'pect I'm older than most of the gentle folks on the forum (60). I grew up listening to and watching Berle and Hope and Jack and Sid and George & Gracie and the Nelsons, etc. Even now I have about 200 audio tapes of old radio shows. Love 'em. Just a generational thing, I guess. Not that there aren't some very funny young comedians, there sure are. But listening to the old-timers takes me back to those simpler, more innocent times. (Oh, heck, I know they weren't really, but I like to think so.)
They also take me back to my youth in the '40s and '50s, and to my sweet cats of those days, like Fuzzy and Dolly and Miss Graylady. I still miss them, but I spose I'm getting closer to seeing them again at the Bridge.
And the young folks' heroes of those days. Roy Rogers and Gene and Hoppy. And the Lone Ranger. "Return with us now to those thrilling days of yesteryear. From out of the past come the thundering hoofbeats of the great horse Silver. The Lone Ranger rides again....!" Do the kids of today have good, clean heroes?
Wow, sorry for the thread drift. Get an old man talking.....
Time to feed the cats.
