The Captain of His Own Fate



Someone wrote and pointed out a similarity between Karl and Captain Kangaroo. I wrote back and said it was coincidence. And then I confessed that we have a photo of the Captain on our bedroom wall (Mary's a big fan.) So who knows? Grandfather-type, living with a small animal-type. Maybe a few brain cells mingled without my knowing it.

As a kid, I didn't watch a lot of Captain Kangaroo. Our television, pre-cable, was at a loss when it came to CBS. But when I met Mary, she tuned me in to all I'd missed.

Tom Terrific, meet Spot the Frog.
