Now's your chance!

Several readers have commented on how much they like this photo of Edgar Bergen packing Charlie. It's one of my favorites as well. It reminds me of Bergen's closing words on his final show at Caesar's Palace, September 29, 1978:
"Every vaudeville act must have an opening and a closing, so I'll pack up my jokes and my little friends...and say... goodbye..."
This gift has gone unclaimed, so I will now re-gift it to someone with the winner to be announced Tuesday (2/22) Mr. D.

    Clinton, I had to laugh when I read how that picture reminded you of those words! I think I know WHY it did! This photo was used as the "centerfold" of your WONDERFUL Edgar Bergen memorial issue of newsy vents, & those words were printed above the photo! Dejavu'!! All my very best! Bill Smith

  2. I love that picture, and remember the first time I saw it right after Mr. Bergen's passing. It's a great photo.

    This is such a great piece. Hopefully it'll find a good home this time around! :-) Steve S.
