    mrd, your story is the kind that I love to hear at a funeral. Makes for a wonderful, memorable moment.

    I know, I love it. That's what that exchange reminded me of.

    Here is what happened when I was telling my husband about it yesterday. I know it's sad that he died, but the exchange we had about it ended up like Who's on First. I am going to quit telling my husband anything as all conversation is ending up like this lately.

    Me: Peter Graves died.
    husband: Is his brother still alive?
    Me: who's his brother?
    husband: Dezi Arnez.
    Me: Dezi Arnez? He's been dead forever. Are you sure?
    husband: yeah, his brother was Dezi Arnez.
    Me: Dezi Arnez was married to Lucille Ball and was Cuban. I'm pretty sure Peter Graves was NOT Cuban.

    husband: His brothers name was Arnez.
    Me: well it was NOT Dezi, I can assure you.
    husband: He was on Gunsmoke, the Sherriff, Matt Dillon.
    Me: OHHH, you mean James Arness.
    husband: that's what I said.
    Me: (banging my head against the wall), you have NO idea WHO it is you're talking about.
    husband: well they were both on tv at the same time. Gunsmoke and Mission Impossible. I liked them both.
    Me: youíre changing the subject because you canít remember his name and are embarrassed that you thought his brother was a Cuban band leader and comedian.
    husband: well he was funny in Airplane.
    Me: Peter Graves was in Airplane, not anyone named Arnez or Arness.
    husband: Yeah, thatís what I said.

    MRD,

    Bud Abbott and Lou Costello are both up there smiling down at you and hubby.

    Everyone tells us we need our own reality show.
    The reality would be that I would be on tape inflicting major bodily harm and that would be used against me.

    Re: Rest In Peace.

    Yesterday Alex Chilton died of a heart attack in New Orleans. He was 59. He is best known for The Letter, which hit the top of the charts when he was only 16, but he has had a profound influence on music since that time and his band, Big Star, was considered to be the father of power pop. I now have to go home and listen to No More the Moon Shines on Lorena and have a glass of wine.
    All I wanted was a 45, a stinking 45 - the record or the gun. I'd even settle for the damn malt liquor. - Al Bundy.

    We just lost Peter Graves and now we must say good-bye to Fess Parker whom we loved as Davy Crockett and Daniel Boone. He was 85.
