Farewell, Mr. Clark


Margie: Sister, I sure was sorry to hear about Mr. Dick Clark passing away.That man sure knew all about music and young people. Remember when we used to watch American Bandstand? There were no videos or such in our day. We'd wait for Saturday to roll around all week.

Oh, remember that day when Chubby Checker was on and Mama got up because she wanted to Twist? Whoo doggies, what a sight that was! Well, Mama did a good job but you looked like a tornado just bumping all around the room.

Edna: Too bad you didn't inherit Mama's grace either. And shame on you, spouting insults when we're supposed to be honoring the poor man! You know, I just loved watching him in Times Square on New Year's Eve. That Ryan Seacrest is a poor substitute for Dick Clark and that's the God's honest truth.

Margie: Who's spouting insults? I never missed him in Times Square either. That Seacrest boy should find him another job but I bet he'll be taking over for New Year's Eve. I'm not sure I'll watch 2013 come in.

Edna: As much as I'm not a fan of young Mr. Seacrest, maybe it's more important that Dick Clark's legacy live on. And if you don't like it you can always find something else to do on New Year's eve, sister. Something far, far away from me.

Margie: Don't worry, sister, I'll be at the VFW entertaining the old troops. We'll be twisting.

Oh, ladies, it just reinforces how old I am getting. Of course, Mr. Clark had a bucketful of money. I did love all his tv shows and my generations rock and roll music.

I'm home from my four months in India. I didn't ride any elephants or camels but I had a terrific time....stopped for five days in Hong Kong at the end. I also lost 25 pounds and I hope, to heck, I don't gain it back. I'm saving every cent to return to India.
