I can't imagine anyone other than Jennings with the knowledge, poise (sans snark), and affable personality as successor-host. Trouble is, he's Seattle-based so would have to travel to tape the shows (five a day, four-week blocks). Brad Rutter is also a big winner (won one of the mega-tournaments), now an actor, and L.A.-based.
Icky, chilly, raw out there. Lakefront didn't get any snow. Bob & the kids are willing to come indoors, sitting far apart and masked, in the back of the house (conversation is possible between kitchen, den & dining room), where we can open the screened windows (& door) wide for fresh air ventilation.
BTW, Don Pardo was the announcer who quizzed teenage me and gave me that $2 bill back in 1965!
Looking back, I certainly can't say, as my chronically depressed dad once did when he was my age, that "life has passed me by." In fact, it seems to have "stopped over" quite often. I can definitely say that I've led a lucky life (kinahurrah)--long-term love, a wonderful son, comfortable income for all but the first 12 years of marriage, two careers (law & music), and much more than my allotted "15 minutes of fame:" besides Jeopardy, on Oprah twice, a Dr. Demento "hit," met several celebrities (and two presidents), done dozens of in-studio radio performances, festivals and concerts (and attended multiples of those as an audience member), traveled to almost all states and three continents, had mostly good health, wonderful friends and small but loving family, and the pleasure of the company of a total of six cats (and hopefully counting). And of course, you terrific BCO sisters (and a brother or two)!
Diagnosed at 64 on routine annual mammo, no lump. OncotypeDX 16. I cried because I had no shoes...but then again, I won’t get blisters....
