I love, love people who aren't afraid to take risks. Stu Moring decided it would be fun to be a stand up comic so he took a class. Click here to watch a short video of his routine at the Punchline in Atlanta.

He happens to be married to my sister. He and Barry were like brothers and the two of them kept us laughing all the time. Our vacations together were so much fun!

Glenda, I tried to download the video and got error messages----again. What can I say, I guess I'm not holding my mouth right.

I can just imagine Stu and Barry together. It's wonderful that two brother-in-laws hit it off so well. What are the odds of that???--slim, I think.

Pat, this video has to download and it is about 8 minutes long so it is slow coming up. I put the link in the sidebar. Try it there.
The video opened in Windows Media on my computer. If anyone else tries to download it and has trouble, I hope they let me know.

I can just imagine what a great time Stu and Barry had together. Nothing kicks the blues any faster than a good laugh. It's good medicine for the soul.

My husband would love this. I can't wait to show it to him. He's threatened to go to Doyle's on open mic night, but has never summoned the courage. I told him maybe he should take a couple of ringers along just to be sure someone laughed.

I noticed Pat used the phrase, I guess I'm not holding my mouth right. That's one of Meakin's favorite things to say. Good to visit this morning. Hope all is well with you. I think of you often.

I hope you were able to see the video. I'd like to be able to show it in an easier format, but it is not on You Tube, so not so easy to download.
Tell Meakin to take a risk and do his thing.
Those with the ability to make others laugh are rare and special people, I think.
At Barry's servie in Alpharetta, Dr. Wagnor told how Barry had said to my sister in his last days, "I'd like to be in front of a room full of people and I'd like to have them laugh at everything I say."
When the group of us, family and friends, laughed out loud, Dr. Wagnor said, "You just made Barry's wish come true."

I miss his wit and his efforts to cheer me up with his antics. But I can remember those things and I smile.
