RIP Soupy Sales

I was too young to understand his show when I was a kid, but I loved it anyway. He always had so much fun in front of the camera, how could you not laugh?

Thanks for all the laughs, Soupy.

The Watering Hole: October 22 – Generations

On this day in 1968 WaltTheSon was born. He observed the Apollo 11 landing on the Moon the following July. For reasons unknown, he does not remember the event. His mother and I often wonder why we exposed him and his siblings to the aura of craftsmanship, history, science and nature.

What they learned eludes us, but each of them is successful in what they do.
