Whoa! Great memory! I would have struck out on that one!

A little more on topic, during my childhood, I thought that Fibber McGee
and Molly lived at

79 West Vovista

and not at

79 Wistful Vista,

since I knew neither the word, "wistful," nor the word, "vista."

Of course. everyone knows who lived with their two sons, David and Ricky, at

1843 Rogers Road.

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
