I loved him on "The Carol Burnett Show", especially when he broke character and cracked up with Carol or Harvey Korman. Great show.

My upper and lower halves appreciate the applause.
Great news, Bevo! Glad that your annual tests were positive. That will make any day sunny.

As for the loss of Tim Conway, well, what can be said other than he was a one-of-a-kind. The native of northeastern Ohio will be missed.

They just don't do TV entertainment like they used to. I loved many of the variety shows of the 60s and 70s. "Sonny and Cher" was a favorite. Cher was so beautiful. Donny and Marie, Perry Como, Dean Martin, Andy Williams, Flip Wilson, and Glen Campbell all had shows that I liked.

Perry Como and Bobby Vinton were both born in Canonsburg, PA, where I lived for five years in a Queen Anne on the main drag at 232 W. Pike Street. Googlemap it and you can see it. We were very sad to see the new owners had painted the beautiful deep red brick all sorts of colors, with many more colors on the wood of the porch and windows. This is called a Painted Lady, which I'm not fond of, especially since my husband pointed all the brick and made it look beautiful when it was ours. They also took out the gorgeous glass double doors we had put in. That's why I don't like to see my old houses I lived in after I don't live there anymore, though I've been through two, including this one.

Thank you owk! Always glad when the days of prep. and procedure are done - even moreso when the results are ok!! This is the 15th. time I have had this done in the last 14 years.

So, while I know the routine, it's still an intense couple of days anticipating results.

Diva - For what it's worth, I agree with you about the old-time comedy and variety shows. It's sure not like it used to be. Seems that much of the comedy today includes questionable language. It's not that I'm a prude, but some of the old-time stuff was just funny on its own and didn't need the profanity.

Thanks for posting the address of your former home in Canonsburg. It is really cool, but I can see why you don't like the way the current owners have painted the brick. That's the sad part about seeing our former houses. Along with Perry Como and Bobby Vinton, I can now count you among the famous people from Canonsburg.

ROCK ON!

Bevo, that's an awful lot of scoping!

OWK, I agree, comedy has sunk to low levels in many cases. I really admire those who make me laugh without being vulgar.

The dentist skit was based on a dentist appointment Tim had while in the army. The dentist pushed the novocaine needle through his cheek and into his own hand. Double-ouch!

During college, someone in a pair of college roommates had the great idea to get a watermelon. One held, the other cut....with a LONG knife. I held....


BG grad Conway was.


Bevo: glad your scopes were perfect. Personally, I could do without the photos they give. Have you had the pill camera yet? Had two. I managed to uh... retain them. Fun tossing them to a kid and as they hold them and ask what it is, fill in the details. Had a shop teacher with one-eye, used to pull a similar gag on us.

Great lists, ohiopup. I loved "White Room", and also their "Keep Me Hanging On". I bought an album of theirs just for that song.

Never was an Elvis fan.

I'm realizing my parents bought us TONS of records. I was pretty young when all of those came out, but I know a lot of them. The radio was always a huge part of my life, the turquoise transistor that I believe Bevo has mentioned. I like the jog down memory lane even though I'm still in a boot. That's the only jogging I'll be doing for a long time.

*** Famous Bulldogs & Famous Buckeyes ***

Larry Snyder

High School: Won the State 1914 high jump Track & Field

Snyder took up flying after finishing high school and became a pilot instructor
during WW-I for the Army Air Corps. (seems like Canton boys like airplanes)

Returing from the service he enrolled at Ohio State (1922) where he excelled in
Track. Snyder qualified for the 1924 US Olympic team as a runner, but sustained
an injury in a plane accident prior to leaving for Paris. Thus ended his hope of
an athletic career, leaving him to coach and train others in Track and Field.

He went on to coach at Ohio State from 1932 to 1965 with a 3 year interruption due
to WW-II ('43 ~ '45) were he served as aviation instructor for the US Navy.

You do a lot of work to educate us, ohiopup. I appreciate that. I'm sure I'm not alone in that thought.

Eleven more days until I get this boot off, then a little bit of rehab to get walking and running again. I will be very careful not to tear this tendon again.

I'm in a running group called You vs. the Year online. We run the year in kilometers, i.e., this year we're running 2019 kilometers. I had to stop at 138k in February when I tore my tendon. I intend to keep going and try to get as many miles as I can, but I won't be able to finish it this year. Next year I will again.

Anyone want to join us? We're on Facebook, private group. All are welcome to join who have accepted the challenge on Map My Run.

That was a wild storm this meeting! Hubby and I were on our way to church. I do love storms.

Wonderful! Good for him, and good for OSU! Thanks for the heads up.

He and my daughter talk every 4-5 years just to catch up. They were very close and remain friends. They're both happily married (to other people).

RIP Leon Redbone.

He was 69. For some reason, I thought he was older than that. Someone once said he sounded like a "drunken trombone".

Yes, RIP Leon Redbone! I wasn't a huge fan, but I did like his rendition of "Ain't Misbehaving (I'm Savin' My Love For You)":




ROCK ON!

He was one off the first (if not the first) musical guest on Sat. Night Live. Quirky. Agree - I thought he was 69 when I first saw him.

Nevertheless, he seems to have pursued his art in his own way - a path more of us should have probably tried.

RIP - Leon

Brice, awaiting the return of her husband, Nicky Arnstein, from prison, their story is
told as a flashback. The musical did not contain any period music, all musical numbers were
written by Jule Styne (lyrics by Bob Merrill).

Fania Borach (October 29, 1891 – May 29, 1951), known professionally as Fanny Brice or
(sometimes 'Fannie') was comedienne, singer, recording artist, theater and film actress; she
starred on stage, radio, and film.

*** Famous Bulldogs & Famous Buckeyes ***


Paul Bixler

He started his coaching career in Canton, Ohio at Canton Central* Junior High and then at
Canton McKinley High School.

While at McKinley he was the an asst. football coach for several seasons (under Aiken)
and the head basketball coach in 1935 and 1936 advancing to the State Tournament both
years (Sweet-16). His combined record was 26-8 .

He then became an assistant football coach at the University of Akron where he also served
as head basketball coach (1937–1939). (He followed Jimmy Aiken who left McKinley to fill
the football position as head coach at Akron)

He was hired as an assistant football coach at Ohio State by Paul Brown and was elevated to
the head coach position in 1946 when Carroll Widdoes stepped down.

from Wiki...
Quote:
Paul O. Bixler (January 25, 1907 – November 18, 1985) was an American football player, coach,
and administrator and basketball coach. He served as the head football coach at Ohio State
University for one season in 1946 and at Colgate University from 1947 to 1951, compiling a
career record of 18–30–4. Bixler was also the head basketball coach at the University of Akron
(1936–1939) and Colgate (1939–1941), tallying a mark of 52–27. He later served as director of
player personnel for the Cleveland Browns of the National Football League (NFL).
Bixler was the 24th head football coach at Colgate University located in Hamilton, New York
and he held that position for five seasons, from 1947 until 1951. His overall coaching record
at Colgate was 14–27–2, ranking him tenth total wins and 26th in winning percentage in school
history.

Bixler died after suffering a heart attack in 1985.

notes: Brown hired Bixler into the Browns organization. Mr. Bixler was our (McK Boosters)
go to guy to get ducats for the NFL games in Cleveland.

* { _ Before McKinley was built; it was just Canton High School, as the student
population grew a feeder school (North H.S.) was built in the NW end of town.
Once McKinley was completed (1918) the 'old' Canton HS was known as 'Central' and
it too became a feeder school. Students did not complete their studies at either
of these schools; eventually North was replaced with Lehman (on site) and Lincoln
in the SW end; both also as feeders to McKinley. The 'Central' building was razed
to make way for the new 'Timken Vocational HS' (opened 1939).

Lehman was elevated to full H.S. status in the late 1930s and Lincoln in 1940.

McKinley also housed 8th graders from the near East side until the mid '60s

It also was a 'Normal School' ~ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Normal_school }

I got my boot off this morning! Six weeks of hobbling around have ended, but now I have to rehab for a while to get my strength back.

The orthopedic place I go to rehab has high school jerseys on their wall. Lots of them. I noticed Diebler's 33 was up there, and so was 55. Who was 55? I can't remember.

Congrats, Diva.
Just a word to the wise (probably not necessary). Whatever you do, don't shortcut the rehab. I injured both of my knees a few years ago, didn't do all the things my orthopedist told me to (actually I lied to him about it too). Well, guess what? Neither one recovered properly and I still have issues with both.
I'm sure hubby is a great coach and support to you about all of this.
All my best.
