Still making me laugh...

And I do need a good laugh recently.

Hollywood Squares
If you remember the Original Hollywood Squares and its comics, this may bring a tear to your eyes. These great questions and answers are from the days when "Hollywood Squares" game show responses were spontaneous, not scripted, as they are now. Peter Marshall was the host asking the questions, of course.

Ahhh. Some funnies; just what the doctor ordered to help me get over the last week. Thankyou for checking in on me. I think the worst has passed. But I'm a bit afraid of saying this, should I be wrong!

Bec of the Ladies Lounge said...

I'll be sending it on too!! Are you still incognito, blogwise?

MsCellania said...

Bec, yes, still incognito, or trying to be. I have removed rss feed capability from my site; haven't registered my blog in my profile, and stopped robotic searches. I don't know what else to do besides password protection?!
