        That's how it was... that was a sweey walk down memory lane...

          Jeremy Clyde was at the Chicago FanFest last year, and when I got his autograph, I asked him about being on the Dick Van Dyke Show.    He said it was a wonderful experience, everyone was fantastic, a great group of people to work with, and very professional, that they had a lot of fun and laughter on the set.  He said he ad-libbed the line "It's a chair"  (you'll hear it in the show), and Dick loved that and wanted to keep it in.   As a bit of trivia, Jeremy is a grandson of the 7th Duke of Wellington, and was an altar boy at Queen Elizabeth II's coronation at Westminster Abbey in 1953.    He said he was a free spirit, and enjoyed music and acting more than being in the circles he grew up in, so decided to make his living as a musician.   In addition to his music, he also acts in film and TV.  

          There was a story I heard him tell someone else about how he packed his guitar over his shoulder one day and went to Peter Asher's house where Paul was living at the time... that the three of them were jamming while sitting on the ledge high outside the windows of the third floor of the house, with their legs dangling, and didn't seem to care that any of them could have fallen to their death... they were just having too much of a good time playing their music!  Too bad there wasn't a film made of that, like the rooftop concert, would have been great to watch!

            Great story! I was with you and didn't know you got Jeremy's autograph and talked to him! Where was I? 😂

              😂

              I had just finished with the "kiddie puppet parade" that Bob A. had, and sat down next to you and J.   I looked at the Fest program and saw that Jeremy was downstairs signing autographs.   I told you I'd be right back, to save my seat, but it ended up being about a half hour - 45 minutes because I went to the Fan merchandise tables after being tempted by an I Love Paul button (I have a 1993 dupe but that was an original) 😂   Anyway, I remember showing you the autograph Jeremy gave and you said, "Cool!" 😂  

              Later that afternoon we went to the mini-concert (about 45 minutes to an hour) that Jeremy gave, and after that I think Mark Lewisohn was one of the afternoon speakers... I remember he got to a slide of Paul and Linda, and when he said "Paul considered Linda the love of his life"  all of a sudden the screen got weird blue lines and  the room went completely dark, which was eerie.  That was the only room the blackout happened in and Mark said the hotel said there were no blown  fuses.  The lights came on about 3-5 minutes later.

                Yeah, that was really eerie when that happened with the lights! 

                I remember I missed all of Jeremy's concert because my mom called to tell me a fuse had blown and she called my daughter and son-in-law over but they couldn't fix it. When I got home I was able to put the switch back in the on position easily! But then found out everything in a mini-fridge I had was spoiled! I have since replaced that fuse.

                  Yeah, I remember you talking to your mom and daughter and son-in-law about that!  I think you were distracted by that, that's why you probably didn't remember about the autograph.   No worries  😂
