    But I remember it without the word "clear". Interestingly, they show it both ways in google. Maybe they changed it somewhere along the way.

    Here's one of each:




    ...and just like that, I woke up one morning and the America I knew and loved was gone.

    Before we had a TV, but I've seen old stills where Sky King started out with a radial engine Cessna T50 twin.

    Robin Williams, God rest his soul, used to make fun of that back in his stand up days.

    Years ago, when "Mork & Mindy" first became popular, I was walking with a friend in Greenwich Village and mentioned that that crazy guy Robin Williams lived in the neighborhood. The words had just left my mouth when you know who turned the corner and was walking toward us.

    He stopped and engaged us in a conversation for several minutes and gave me an "autograph" on a piece of paper that I still have. It says "Nanu, Nanu".

    His interviews with Bruno Sammartino were legendary. I was addicted to wrestling back then, as a youngster.

    Watching wrestling with my granddad back in the late 70s, on their big ‘ol Zenith console TV. I think it was WCW back then- Dusty Rhodes, Andre the Giant, the Von Erichs, and of course “Nature Boy” Ric Flair.
    Granddad would stretch out on the couch and I’d sit at the end. Before it was over he’d always put me in a leg scissors or a headlock or something. Good times.

    Weird, I don’t remember Waldo von Erich at all, just Fritz and the sons. They actually did a publicity appearance at my small town high school, it was a HUGE deal [emoji3]
