We see them every day, people who actually believe they can outsmart old
Father Time. “Me retire?” They often say. “No sir, not me, not while I am still able to go out there and give it all I’ve got. Never.”
Sometimes it is sad. And as I write this I am thinking about myself. I often think about George Burns who was still able to perform at age 100. He played the role of a hundred year old man with a few still funny things to share with you. That is why playing the role of Almost Andy is such fun for me. Nobody is expecting a 27 year old comic to come onstage. I waddle onstage. I meander now and then when I digress from one point to another and then another and it is a long swim back to my starting thought. Just the same I am having good clean fun and as long as the audience laughs and applauds and seems to be really attentive and enjoying the experience then I shall carry on. Hope to see you all at Mt. Airy, Mayberry Days this weekend.
