Carol

Comedian Carol Burnett had a variety show I'll never forget. She gave us much laughter and cheer, sometimes just by pulling her ear.

Good write! I also remember her being on the late Garry Moore's show years before she was given her own show.

My sister's married name is Pettit - she lives in Texas - are you in the US? I cried when Lucy Ball died, same with Bob Hope, and I know I'll cry when we lose Carol. All three were part of my childhood and teenage years, you, too? Thanks for commenting, Robert! Poetry hugs ... CayCay

I loved this one; loved Carol, and loved the ear. Good luck in the contest. I have her biography, and it is a great, but sad read. All the horribleness she and her sister endured; going to the picture show was their favorite thing with the grandmother who took over and helped them.

I knew about hell with a daughter, but I didn't know about when growing up. I'll wikipedia her. I already know that I'll cry when she makes her transition. Saturday night, parents out, babysitting my little sister - CAROL BURNETT. Do you, by chance, remember the King Family? One of the cousins was married to the actor who played Robbie on My Three Sons? (my mind went there.) Thanks for commenting. Poetry hugs ... CayCay
