                                Had the pleasure of having brief conversation with John Early 80’s
                                Miami beach
                                He’d been chartering a fishing boat next to my uncles boat
                                About a month before he passed
                                He didn’t look very good

                                    He thought he could transition from a comedian into a serious actor,
                                    all the while abusing himself with food, drugs and booze!
                                    John, you should have known your limitations and stuck to being a
                                    comedic actor!

                                    WHEN I SEE THIS, I DON'T MIND BEING OLD, BECAUSE I LIVED IN A TIME THAT WAS ONE OF THE BEST. KIDS TODAY, MIGHT HAVE YOUTH, BUT THEY WILL NEVER HAVE WAITED UP TO SEE BELUSHI, SEE E.J. BOSTON, OR STEVIE WONDER IN THEIR PRIME. BIKE PATHS, POND FISHING, SAFE SCHOOLS, SAFE POOLS, WOMEN WHO LIKED LOOKING, ACTING, AND YES, EVEN SMELLING, LIKE WOMEN. YOU COULD MAKE AN INSENSITIVE JOKE, AND NO ONE CARED, REGARDLESS OF THEIR COLOR. YEP, WHEN STYX SANG "THE BEST OF TIMES," THEY KNEW WHAT THEY WERE TALKING ABOUT.

Sneaking-wise, the night the 1st Eric Idle show repeated, my step-sister snuck here little b&w TV into our room, but only got so far before getting caught.
