    I could have been rich if I had thought to buy real estate just before the inflationary period of the Big Bang.

    Well; to be totally fair Ms. Schafer was an exceptionally elegant and delightful lady with a quick wit and boundless generosity; she had none of Dawn Wells' raw sex appeal but there are many kinds of beauty - now in my later years I can definitely see the attraction; so excellent point!

    Laura Ingalls Wilder was still alive when I was born. Does that make me a pioneer?

    I remember when Fermat asked if I could give him a really wide piece of paper. I told him to use a book margin instead.

    Bela Lugosi was still alive when I was born, or at least still walking around.

    gosh I remember the coronation, got a mug, but not the wedding, just celebrated as 70 years, I was one at the time, for the coronation many folks got their first TV, my parents did. Did you know the duke of E is said to have bought flowers for his wife, the Queen, that's what I am on about, every week? That makes me feel guilty, it's ages since I bought flowers. But then again, I'm not a duke.
