  1. That makes MORE sense to me; lost track (since there is a lack of stuff in print) about those years after she came back from NYC; I think by then, will have to look back, her mom had moved to Jamestown, since the Celoron house went into foreclosure after the gun incident; that pretty much, raised terrible trauma/memories for the family and its then-relocation.
  2. Thanks for the information; maybe 'those who he had catalog his apartment collectibles' weren't nearly as truthful as I had assumed them to be; I appreciate the 'facts'; which have been hanging out there so long. Do you KNOW if my information about the FRAME SHOP as 'his private sales' is correct? I really would like to know if you know. Just another quick question, if you'd care to comment; did he BID on that object? Thanks if you remember.
  3. Just re-reading THIS one, Luvs, and if you have one with Pauline Lopus, she NEVER went to Jamestown H.S., with Lucille; Pauline would have been in high school at Celoron, prior to centralization to Southwestern in mid-50's; i.e. if your photo is 9th grade, the one showing above is way-beyond 9th grade; don't see Lucille there either, although it claims to be. In any event, IF it's Lucille, Pauline is NOT in photo, unless it's an earlier year. I believe when Lucille came back to Jamestown, moving into apartment w/her mom, in Jamestown, tried to finish high school, which she had failed to graduate, was trying to graduate; and it's my understanding she NEVER graduated; but, went back to what is now historically-known as her big chance in Hollywood.
  4. Any chance it was arrdubya? Rumor (truth) has it, he had MANY artifacts in his home apartment; made a serious mistake of asking two friends to catalog his 'stuff'; it's my understanding, for instance, and verified to me personally when I asked each of these two persons, that some 'missing' donations to the Museum were among those items cataloged. It's also my understanding MANY of 'his' home-cataloged artifacts remain for sale at the Frame Shop. Perhaps that's how his 'income' to remain in Jamestown is made, which, also my understanding, he still owns and resides in a home on Lakeview Avenue.
  5. The Post-Journal, Jamestown, NY, Question of the Day: "Have you ever seen a Robert Klein stand-up special?" - Yes: 18%; No: 82%. [i was recently asked about percentages; so, here is my reply: When Lucille Ball-related questions were posed in the P-J, I attempted to get the actual number of persons voting: it failed miserably; and I could name the person I called; who was 'very put out' that he had to bother himself to get those numbers to me; so, after the NEXT time, and he never responded to my phone messages (3 times, I think); I quit trying to do that - and won't embarrass him by naming him; but, may try again one of these days; if same thing happens, I may go to the editor himself to complain; don't know; depends on how mad I get! So, just say to yourself; if 10 voted, there is your percentage in reality; i.e. in this Klein case, for instance: nearly 2 of 10, yes/no] respectfully submitted, JK

None of the 'teenies' were trying to drink or were out of control in any way; JUST SAYIN'; there's a place for everyone; and everyone in his place; no one disappeared to get some drugs; it was not as bad as I indicated; but, at my age, and several of the other 'elder' of us, that many little ones is WAY TOO MANY...... They actually were well behaved; it was just the numbers of them (I think I counted about 12; ONLY 8 adults!!!!; and the amount of food each put on his/her plate!!!! We all got through it.....
