Here is a newspaper clipping challenge photo that will stump you
slackers, hipsters and even Laura and Kathy and me too - if I hadn't been the
one looking for it (or something similar) ---
The challenge is to identify one of the ladies and her relationship to the Jack
Benny Program. -- I'll post the answer near the end of today's chat. (If LL
doesn't ban me.) (edited)

Hi folks, I guess we will be without Laura tonight, she posted something
on FB an hour ago about feeling rotten and going to bed, I am sorry that she is
r.hookie [5:02 PM]
That's too bad
Tom V. [5:03 PM]
Lots of colds and such going around here, too!
Who runs the show when Laura's absent?
garth_johnson [5:05 PM]
Peter Van Steeden
Silence I was expecting a fanfare of bronx cheers
r.hookie [5:07 PM]
kathy_fuller_seeley [5:09 PM]
so is Giselle McKenzie one of the lovely ladies in that photo, Garth? or
the woman who played Lois Lane on TV?
garth_johnson [5:10 PM]
no, ... but one of the
ladies is known for singing
kathy_fuller_seeley [5:10 PM]
the best Benny update that I have for you all is that we are getting
CLOSER to an agreement the Benny Estate lawyer will OK, to publish the Benny
radio show scripts 1932-1936, yay....
r.hookie [5:11 PM]
Tom V. [5:11 PM]
That's good news!
garth_johnson [5:14 PM]
Published under a "General" agreement - or is that a tired pun
kathy_fuller_seeley [5:15 PM]
haha its blowout-proof, and will be free and easy on the draw
Tom V. [5:15 PM]
About your picture Garth.....the woman on the left looks like Eve Arden.
Is that correct?
garth_johnson [5:17 PM]
Sorry Tom, it's not Our Miss Brooks, but you have identified the one
person with the direct connection to Our Friend Jack
Tom V. [5:18 PM]
r.hookie [5:20 PM]
Well, I think I'll take off... Good night, folks!
kathy_fuller_seeley [5:22 PM]

Hookie, and say goodnight, Gracie!
garth_johnson [5:23 PM]

the quiz ...
kathy_fuller_seeley [5:23 PM]
baby its cold outside ...
but I would like to know who the mystery women are!
Tom V. [5:24 PM]
garth_johnson [5:24 PM]
On the left is Connie Barlow Rubenstein. Connie was featured on the
April 2, 1950 Jack Benny program form Palm Springs.
She performed with The Sportsmen an adaption of "Baby it's Cold
Outside" Barlow was the wife of Irwin "Ruby" Ruberstein host at
"Ruby's Dunes" cafe and performed there.

Hi fellow JB lovers!
kathy_fuller_seeley [5:24 PM]
ah HA!!!!!! A wonderful find!
Hello Joe, you got in, hooray! Just as we were all about to call it an
early night because Laura is AWOL, or at least sick and I am sorry about that
garth_johnson [5:25 PM]
The other woman is the wife of the owner of the Chi Chi also of P A L M
S P R I N G S
Tom V. [5:25 PM]
I call that tough Jack Benny trivia!
joe_postove [5:25 PM]
I saw that she is not feeling well. :disappointed:
Hi Kathy! Thanks for the help!
kathy_fuller_seeley [5:27 PM]
well, glad you got here, and sorry that we aren't more merry or
joe_postove [5:27 PM]
Well, let's take a nap and think of a show!
Tom V. [5:28 PM]
I guess I'll just go get my Jack Benny DVD;s and pull out the Christmas
Shopping episode with Mel Blanc!
kathy_fuller_seeley [5:28 PM]
I need to get to work on making a Jack Benny ornament for my tree. My
husband suggested a tiny violin, but I want something a little more elaborate.
garth_johnson [5:29 PM]
Kathy - A stuffed polar bear?
kathy_fuller_seeley [5:29 PM]
shoelaces tied around a box of jello, perhaps, as its more cheerful than
a package of Luckies
Oh Garth, I DO have a polar bear! I can repurpose him as Carmichael!
perhaps I can make Carmichael a tiny gasman's cap
joe_postove [5:30 PM]
Whenever someone uses the words cinnamon or ingredients I change it to
Cimmaron and ingredaments. Of course no one gets my reference. Was that on the
radio show or TV. I know it is a Mel Blancism.
garth_johnson [5:33 PM]
Mel's bakery was a radio gag
joe_postove [5:34 PM]
can I find it by searching for mel's bakery. I think it was so
kathy_fuller_seeley [5:37 PM]
that is a great laugh to leave on, I'll try to post some more things on
the FB group, now that my endless Fall semester is over! and a picture of
Carmichael dudded up
kathy_fuller_seeley [5:37 PM]
Tom V. [5:38 PM]
Good night, folks. Merry
Christmas and Happy Holidays!
garth_johnson [5:39 PM]
Last call for the Super Chief!
