I must admit, though, that I've NEVER seen the last episode of the Mary Tyler Moore Show! Now, I've seen clips - the Kleenex scene, for instance - but not the whole program. I've managed to miss it in reruns, even though it was on TV Land or Nick at Nite on New Year's Eve for a number of years. If you see it on the cable schedule, please let me know, O.K.?
Another confession: there was a period when I would confuse Ted Knight with another silver-haired fellow, Jack Cassidy, who was married to Shirley Jones. (Did you know that the Partridge Family was Gordon's guilty pleasure?) Jack was David's father, and Shirley was David's step-mom. Of course, a cultural maven such as yourself would NEVER make such a mistake, would you?
Glad that your reduced blogging schedule is working for you, though I miss those daily words of wisdom.
