The Other Man With A Golden Arm
The beautiful Kim Novak was at the show at Edgefield in Troutdale, near Portland, Oregon. She and her husband stopped in to say a quick hello before the concert began. We were all completely star struck and honored to meet her. Who could ever forget her performances in Vertigo, Bell Book and Candle or The Man With the Golden Arm? Thank you Ms. Novak for the many hours of entertainment throughout the years.
After Oregon we headed to Snoqualmie, Washington and the Snoqualmie Casino. We were told the TV series Northern Exposure was filmed nearhere. The series was set in Alaska, but I guess Washington was the next best thing.
The following day we were at the Northern Quest Casino in Airway Heights, Washington, not far from Spokane.
I know I told you about the time we overheard two ladies, fans of Dads, who were talking about him while they were in line to get into the venue.
“They say he’s playing another casino tomorrow night”
“Yeah, I heard that.”
“He’s got a gambling problem you know.”
“Yes way. That’s why he’s playing all these casinos all the time.”
We laughed all the way to the slot machines.
