What did she say?

Alan Alda was interviewed on CBS this morning by Charlie Rose. He actually asked him "How is life after MASH?" What? As if he hasn't done anything since. I thought it was insulting. Alan Alda however brushed it aside and put together a very acceptable reply.

What stopped me in my tracks was the conversation that ensued about Alan and his wife of 55 years. Alan described being at a dinner party recently and as is often the case they separated the couples to enliven the table conversation. Alan was at one end and Arlene at the other. He couldn't concentrate on the conversation at his end because he kept straining to hear what she was saying.

Doesn't that comment say everything about a relationship?


  1. I always liked him. Now, even more.

  2. I fell in love with him all over again this morning. What a man.
