Password

My daughter and I watch the nighttime edition of Password every week (after Secret Agent, before Rocky and Bullwinkle). Allen is a great host and it's particularly fun when Betty is a contestant!

Whew!

When I saw a photo of Betty White featured my first thought was that she must have just died. I'm glad she's still with us at 98.

I suppose your caption hinted that it wasn't an obit, but I didn't get that far before jumping to my conclusion.

Don't do that to us again.

The Pride of Mineral Point

Allen Ludden was born in (and is buried in) my former hometown of Mineral Point, Wisconsin. Ludden Lake, north of town, is a favorite fishing spot. I’ve seen photos of Allen and Betty at a Mineral Point parade in their honor, but couldn’t find it.
