Ye Olde Memory Book

"First time I've been able to use Laugh-In references in about 15 years," writes Ward McCarthy. He's alluding to a series of inappropriate LAUGH-IN based emails we sent each other when Gary Owens died. I shan't befuddle you with the details, which might as well be Sanskrit. But Ward reminds me that one of the times he and I worked with Gary Owens was one of the most fun days of our lives: Gary Owens was charming to us, and as Ward wrote, we spent the day "driving all around Universal Studios back lot by ourselves/breaking into the Psycho house - I still have the piece of wallpaper I ripped off the wall." And I still have my splinter I pried off the front porch! And some guys played us an audio tape of John Wayne drunk at a VFW meeting.
