Well, if the good Lord's willin' and the creek don't rise, Barbara and I are going to fly out to LA for the tribute to Eddie. I'm going to try to speak if I don't completely choke up. Maybe I'll tell the Rip Taylor story.....

Thanks so much for the wonderful issue of the Jack Benny Times. It was great to read all of Eddie's articles and the reminiscences about him.

Quick report on the Eddie Carroll tribute: our president Laura Leff did a wonderful job, introducing the clip from the Jack Benny Birthday Special featuring Eddie. I told a story about Eddie and Rip Taylor and almost got through it without crying. Very intimidating, being a speaker amid such talents as Peter Marshall, Wink Martindale, Jamie Farr, and Laura--but I wouldn't have missed the tribute for the world. So long for now, Eddie. We'll all miss you

Back to Atlanta early tomorrow--where, I swear, the traffic is worse than it is in L.A.
