Beverly Cleary passed away on March 25 at age 104.

SC, XDCX, BAM, Don Marco and Mignon picked her.

R.I.P.


Signor V.


"For me, there's only my wife..."

"Sure I cook with wine - sometimes I even add it to the food!"

"When life itself seems lunatic, who knows where madness lies?"

"It was a grass harp... And we listened."

"Do any human beings ever realize life while they live it? Every, every minute?"

"No. Saints and poets, maybe... they do some."

Two deaths worth mentioning (and I know I'm showing my age):

Gloria Henry died on April 3rd at age 98. She was the mother, Alice Mitchell, on the classic Dennis the Menace TV series from 1959-1963.

Also, Frank Jacobs died April 5th at age 91. If the name isn't immediately familiar, Jacobs wrote just about all the wonderful song and poetry parodies for Mad Magazine in their glory days. As a matter of fact, a couple of weeks ago, I regaled Signora V. with a rendition of "Hello Deli" from memory. (Now I'm really dating myself!)

Here it is - from memory (sung to "Hello Dolly")

Hello, deli,
This is Joe, deli,
Would you please send up a nice corned beef on rye?
A box of Ritz, deli,
And some Schlitz, deli,
Some chopped liver and a sliver of your
Apple pie.

Turkey legs, deli,
Hard boiled eggs, deli,
With tomatoes and potatoes
You French fry, oh...

Please don't be late, deli,
'Cause I can't wait, deli,
Deli - without breakfast I will die!

R.I.P.

Signor V.: within the last couple of months, I tracked down two issues of Mad Magazine that contain Jacobs songs that I remember verbatim over 50 years later:

(Sung to "Grand Old Flag")

She's a mean old bag,
She's a nasty old hag,
And forever she's filled us with hate.
But we treat her sweet,
And kiss her feet,
And tell her we think that she's great.

Let her curse at us,
We will not raise a fuss,
When she starts in to scream and nag.
For we all are counting what we'll get,
From the will of that mean old bag.

It's uncanny how they stick with you.

And the scary thing is... I remember that one! eek

I remember another one Frank Jacobs wrote to the same tune:

It's a grand old smog,
It's a low lying smog,
You can tell by the smell and the pall,
Though it clouds the skies
And it burns our eyes,
It means there's employment for all!

'Cause it comes, you see,
From some great factory,
Where there's never an idle cog,
So, let's preserve our way of life
And give thanks for that grand old smog! sick
