He also repaired the shingles on his house after storms.

Dat's wacist.:lol2:



ETA: One article I read about the late Mr. Dawson said he kissed around 20,000 different women.

He also met his wife on Family Feud. Kissed her before they knew each other.

Wow.

Not meaning to speak ill of the dead but I thought he was dead longh since.
I identified him with my Grandad's generation (eta he was older).

Still - RIP all the same.
He had some killer stories in him.

Ray is off to the Halloween Tree. He taught me about wonder, that reading is to be cherished, and that frightening is not the same thing as horrible.

Sad. What a great author. Timeless.

Music inspired by Bradbury's writing.

That's the ABCs of classic science fiction grandmasters all gone; Asimiov, Bradbury, and Clarke.

R.I.P. Bob Welch





Dead of an apparant suicide.:(:(:(

infinite monkey 06-07-2012 05:17 PM

omg...two of my old favorite songs. I always liked to imagine they were both written for me. ;)

RIP Bob.

(in the first vid it says "Bob Welsh.")

I was in Friend's backyard Thursday evening when "Ebony Eyes" came on the radio. We talked for a minute about how great a song it was, and I told my unaware Friend that Mr. Welch used to be in Fleetwoood Mac.

Turns out Bob Welch was less than forty miles away killing himself about that time.
