The Plumber Arrives

In the early '60s I had a plumbing repair call at James Garner's house in West Los Angeles close to Sunset and Sepulveda. His only request was who ever came to his house had already had the mumps. So I qualified as I did indeed had the mumps as a child. On arriving he insisted I have a cup of coffee and chat with him for a few minutes as he had not had a visitor for a few days. He turned out to be a very nice person. I completed the job and left.

I always felt sorry for Jack Kelly

His episodes as Bart Maverick never had a chance when compared to James Garner as Bret.

Pleases With Cheeses

1957's Alice in Dairyland was Miss Nancy Kay Trewyn (Prosser), listed on the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture's "Past Alices" page. Below: News item from the March 7, 1958, Deseret News and Telegram of Salt Lake City.
