You know you're getting old when [blank]

You know you're getting old when regulars from game shows you used to watch as a kid are dying off. The latest to go: Brett Somers, who died last Saturday at age 83, shown here in a 1977 photo with fellow Match Game co-stars Richard Dawson (still living), the deceased Charles Nelson Reilly and the deceased Gene Rayburn (host).

Wow...it's pretty scary that as I read your blog, I started humming that funky '70s theme song music they played as the panel wrote down their answers.

That show gave a whole new meaning to the term innuendo. I'm surprised half the stuff got on the air.

And I SO miss CNR. Cracked me up.

Thanks for the trip down memory lane.
