3.  so, whatever happened to actor WILLIAM CONRAD….well, let’s find out…

first of all, WILLIAM CONRAD had a show business career that lasted over five decades…here’s an early picture of him…by the way, WILLIAM CONRAD was the voice of MARSHALL MATT DILLON on the radio version of “GUNSMOKE.”

don’t know if you knew this or not, but WILLIAM CONRAD was the narrator on the “ROCKY AND BULLWINKLE SHOW”…..

but, most people will remember WILLIAM CONRAD for playing the character of FRANK CANNON on the hit tv show” CANNON”…i used to LOVE that show….

he also starred with JOE PENNY in the tv show “JAKE AND THE FATMAN.”

WILLIAM CONRAD died in 1994 at the age of 73….he had congestive heart failure….

i am amazed at how low key some big celebrity graves are…

here’s WILLIAM CONRAD in his later years…

4.  remember the “CANNON” tv theme? here it is…



5.  how is this for sad and ironic?  ANDY ROONEY’S college roommate BOB RUTHMAN was attending a memorial service for his friend, when he suffered a heart attack AND DIED….he actually died at the ceremony…wow…

7.  i believe strongly that a part of confirmation class in church is for the kids to learn about death…with that in mind, last night i took my ST. JOHN’S confirmation kids from HECLA to SPITZER MILLER FUNERAL HOME to get a tour…i’ll tell you this….if you EVER want an in depth very informative tour of the funeral home, talk to KEVIN SPITZER…he is AWESOME….heck, i worked there and didn’t know some of the stuff he talked about last night…..KEVIN, by the way, is one of my dearest friends…he’s an awesome dude!!

 An anthropologist decides to investigate the natives of a far-flung tropical island. He flew there, found a guide with a canoe to take him up the river to the remote site where he would make his collections. About noon on the second day of travel up the river they began to hear drums. Being a city boy by nature, the anthropologist was disturbed by this. He asked the guide, “What are those drums?”
     The guide turned to him and said “Drums OK, but VERY BAD when they stop.”
     Then, after some hours, the drums suddenly stopped! This hit the anthropologist like a ton of bricks, and he yelled at the guide: “The drums have stopped, what happens now?”
     The guide crouched down, covered his head with his hands and said, “Guitar solo.”
