Back in the day when variety shows were the rage on television, Andy Williams was one of our most popular entertainers. His show was a must for many each year.
More recently, his show, particularly his Christmas show at his theater in Branson, was one of the most popular attractions in that resort city. My wife always wanted to go to his Christmas show there. Never could work it in the schedule. With the news that Williams died Tuesday, she was sad. An item on the bucket list that will never happen.
A co-worker asked Beverly on Tuesday who Andy Williams was, she replied, "He sang 'Moon River' and discovered the Osmonds." Much more but those were the highlights.
Been a rough year for the Andys: We've now lost Andy Rooney, Andy Griffith, Andy Williams.
Somehow most of the afternoon, I was humming "Moon River."
