Mourning Joy

"He treated me like a little girl, and I loved it -- Women's Lib be damned!"
--Edith Adams

Good Mourning Widows!

Joy to you and me!

Today we honor and welcome famous widow Edith Adams wife of famous comedian Ernie Kovacs to our joyous club -- The club nobody wants to joy-n

Edie and Ernie were married in September 1954.
Edie's had her share of sorrow.
Ernie Kovacs died suddenly in January 1962.

In 1982 her daughter, Mia Susan Kovacs was killed in a car accident.

You may remember Edie as the Muriel Cigar lady. She made famous those jingles --
" Why don't you pick one up and smoke it some time." and
"Hey, big spender, spend a little dime on me."

Uh, anybody out there remember when a Muriel Cigar cost a dime?

Edie remarried Marty Mills two years after the death of Ernie Kovacs.

She also went on to star on Broadway, make movies -- Starring in her most memorable performance, It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World.

After we remember Him, finger hug your pen.

Write something.

Is there a little girl in you?
What about Women's Lib?
Do you remember Muriel Cigars?
Gosh, What's a dime look like?

Go ahead.
Write something.

I dare you.

"If you cannot find peace within yourself, you will never find it anywhere else."
--Marvin Gaye

Have a joyful day Widows. And remember, we're not alone.
Oh, yeah. And we're normal, whatever normal is.
