A normal Febuary,1961 day with one phone call that said to me: “This is John Kennedy congratulating you on being voted Entertainer Of The Year at Teen Magazine, again”. He has a good sense of humor about himself so I say back: “Good thing for you
there is a law saying that a guy my age cannot be elected President”. I hear him laugh and someone else laugh in the background, then that person says “That kid is dynamite”- Lyndon Johnson! Knowing there is a speaker phone there I say to the
President so they can both hear: “That buddy of yours, Johnson, is soo old that the last time Jesus saw him, Jesus looked up to Heaven and said: ‘Pops, that helper of yours from Let There Be Light Day is here!”. Much, much laughter.
