How I miss the Nairobi Trio.

Thanks, Bill! That first one is actually a Kovacs impersonator, believe it or not... wdn't think there'd be much of a market for that...

yikes! you are so right...thought it looked and sounded off but figured that it was just the vagaries of memory and age...and i grew up glued to watching kovacs..thanks for info

ernie kovacs was a true "mad hungarian." he died in a car crash, i believe after leaving a party at billy wilder's apartment on wilshire blvd. in LA. he left his wife edie adams with no money and some big debts. she got out of it by becoming the star of a series of very successful cigar commercials. ernie, of course, was a well known cigar smoker. i think edie adams died just a few weeks ago.

My brother had a huge crush on Edie Adams.

i also had a crush on edie. she was so unthreatening.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
