Keeping with the trend that noted personalities seem to die in threes, "Captain" Daryl Dragon, of the Captain and Tennile, also 76, passed away today along with "Mean" Gene Okerlund and Bob Einstein, aka Super Dave. May they all Rest in Peace.

Not a celebrity, but my left big toe was amputated Saturday, Dec 29. I loved Big Lefty, took pictures of him right before his imenint demise, and will miss him. It was the end result, long-delayed of a bone infection inflicted by a clumsy passenger on the CAPITOL LIMITED who dropped his suitcase on Big Lefty back in August.

No pain, due to my neuropathy not knowing how to report the pain. I'm actually doing well and getting around, although I'm quite wobbly. No more pain meds, just massive antibiotics.

Always said I'd give my left leg to ride a train.

This is one of the most heartfelt farewells I've seen in quite some time.

Speedy recovery; and sorry to hear the news.
