|The Professor and Gilligan|
Also passing this week, from a program that was popular later in my life, was Dave Madden. More widely known as Reuben Kincaid, the manager of "The Partridge Family". Not only a popular TV show, it produced several albums and chart topping songs in the early 70's.
Now, not particularly a part of my childhood (though for some reason CBS ran the movie once a year for several years during the 60's) was "The Wizard of Oz". This passing just kind of makes you go "Awwww." Ruth Duccini passed at the age of 95. Ruth was once of the munchkins we saw when Dorothy arrived in Oz. With her passing, the number is down to ONE. Jerry Maren (93) is the last surviving munchkin.
One last thing, Mississippi State was successful in the 2013 Liberty Bowl. I will admit to being a little worried in the very beginning as Rice scored first and took a 7-0 lead. (But I think they just made the Bulldogs mad.) It was 7-7 at the end of the first quarter, but the rest of the game was pretty much all Dogs. They pretty much just chewed up the Owls en route to a 44-7 MSU victory.
Everyone have a great day!
