    The oily spot on the pavement shows where it was. Or maybe where HE was.

    Anyone in a suit like that should be missing…

    But that’s the only joke I will make about a guy who died of brain cancer.

    When your tie is as wide as your smile, something is wrong.

    Ever win A PAYCHECK from Bert Convy ..he paid off like a slot machine! Just hit the quiz right like *7*7*7* and he paves the way.

    … memorabilia is a form of nostalgia, which according to a recent Ripley’s Believe It or Not, used to considered a form of mental illness…

    …and the more I fondly reminisce about nostalgia, the more I consider it to be thus…

    … it wouldn’t be the first time $$$ was made out of a disease or addiction…

    …like my niece, Mary, says: thank you microbreweries for making a hobby out of my addiction…

    … Bert- but not Burt- is a gender neutral name…

    … I used to have an aunt (either awnt or ant) Bert…

    … but did you know that Hi is short for Hiram?…

    …and all this time I thought Hi was short for Hello…

    …hello being a relatively new word originally meant to attract attention…( Hello! What do you think you are doing?)…

    …until that damnable Thomas Edison thought A.G. Bell’s, ‘Ahoy!’ wasn’t Thomas Edison-ie enough…

    … Tesla! Tesla! Tesla!…

    … there, I said it…

    The height of ’70s culture: “Shakespeare Loves Rembrandt.” I thought maybe it was Karen Valentine in the “Rembrandt” role, but my bad. It was Jo Ann Pflug. Whose image from the movie M*A*S*H is indelibly impressed in my alleged brain.

    Gene Rayburn was no slouch in the fancy-schmancy suit department either.

    I’m 72 and have no idea who this Convey person is. Minor Watergate figure?

    Bert, indeed, is missing … went to that big quiz show in the sky in 1991 … but is he missed? Apparently by Sister Teresa … btw Google should somehow compensate her for the searches she generates with her provocations …!

    Meh. I never had any Bert Convy memorabilia. Hence, none are missing, as far as I am concerned. One must curate one’s own stuff, of all categories, from priceless to lame.

    But, seriously, Bert Convy?! How ’70s can you get?
