    I miss Red also. We need more like him today.

    I notice that is dated 1969 but was my first time to see it.
    Thanks Phil!

    Thank you so much, Phil. It is so good to remember him and to realize that there are still some of us out there with beliefs and morals while the TV is full of "me only" and "I don't give a #amn about anything" attitudes.

    I still remember watching the old Red Skelton show when I was growing up. I have several of his tapes and still watch them from time to time. He was the funniest man I can remember.

    I just wonder ... how many 10 year olds today could explain those mighty words as well ?
    Personally, and I would sincerely hope I am wrong, but I doubt few could explain it, and even fewer could say it? ... ...
    Closing before I start crying! I'm sure more Brother's and Sister's understand why than todays 10 year olds!
    One Sad Coyote,

    Red was one of a kind...he didn't have to use vulgarity to get laughs.
