Show and Tail and Wordless Wednesday

I am hooking up today with Angela at West Virginia Treasures. Please visit her and leave your favorite animal story. She's a wonderful gal and it's a fun place.

And Wordless Wednesday Tuesday Edition
My first time.

Happy Birthday to Jerry Van Dyke - Dick Van Dyke's brother - wikipedia

Van Dyke began his stand-up comedy career while still in high school in Danville, and was already a veteran of strip joints and nightclubs when he joined the Air Force Tops In Blue in 1952.

During the mid-Fifties, Van Dyke worked at WTHI-TV in Terre Haute, Indiana. The "Jerry Van Dyke Show," which included future CBS News Today Show news anchor Joseph Benti, Nancee South and Ben Falber, was popular fare. In the service he performed at military bases around the world, twice winning the All Air Force Talent Show.

Following his first guest appearances on The Dick Van Dyke Show and two appearances on The Ed Sullivan Show, CBS made him a regular on The Judy Garland Show. He was also given hosting chores on the 1963 game show Picture This. In that same year, movie audiences saw him in supporting roles in the films McLintock!, Palm Springs Weekend and The Courtship of Eddie's Father.

The dog in the ice reminds me of Lilly. She doesn't like heat, but she loves snow!! Sounds like me!

Jerry Van Dyke is great! He's so funny.
