I was a service and repair UNION plumber and worked for John Keefe plumbing in Beverly Hills. One of our customers was Mr. and Mrs. Reiner, So one night I called to their house and I'am under their kitchen sink and he is right there with me asking if he can help. I asked him if I could help him with his comedy. And he said " You just did" We both laughed and as he walked away telling me in a comical way, that if I needed his help to just call. him. That was very a funny encounter with just one of the many famous celebrities I had met. This is just another comedian that has passed in the ripe old age close to 100 years of age, comedy is healthy and is life's cherry on top.

RIP Carl Reiner!
Lately I’ve been watching old shows
To try to bring some kind of normal in my life right now with all the hate and destruction going on.
Some young people should watch old movies and things like Johnny Carson. Can’t put nothing on today without the shows talking politics and creating hate.
God Bless You!

There are thousands of people leave this world daily without knowing where they came from, why they were here, and where they are going after here although, that is the only reason we come into this world. That is so sad.
