Everyone seems to miss Phil Hartman and his cane.....so I do as well.

I am now faced with a difficult choice this evening. Houseguest, Sgt. Bilko, or Jingle All The Way.

I really miss Phil Hartman too, a tier one funny Canadian.

I have a cane story. I was recovering from some minor orthopedic surgery while attending an old uni in the US North-East. The sidewalks and streets were very old, uneven and winding. My walking and balance suffered as twinges of pain shot up my leg. The heaving cobblestones left me cursing. I think I even fell once or twice. A cane greatly helped and it just so happened that my sister had brought me one back from a trip to the UK. Sheep's horn handle, applewood, brass tip.

What you have to picture is a prepped out 20 year old walking around with a proper stick! the trouble was, unless they knew me and the back story, nobody, I mean NOBODY thought the cane was for anything other than style. To my shock and horror, sincere compliments were flying at me from perfect strangers and I was only too quick to explain that it was a medical need and not a fashion statement. They usually reacted with disappointment, such were the 80's. After a couple of weeks I didn't need the stick anymore. FWIW, I did learn that people will believe almost anything on me or of me.

"displease" is a great word and I forgot all about the boss becoming the guy who burned the building down in Office Space.

My wife hates it when I use my umbrella to point.

What is it with wives?

Of course everyone knows Phil did the cover art for Poco's 'Legend' album. Right? He was a genius.

I've been spending the last few days wondering if I could pull off a cane. My conclusion is that I would not be able to. However, if I ever do hurt my ankle or foot, I will give it a try. That way, I have an excuse.
