Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:45pm prof.fuzz:

i once met Bert Convy at Burt Reynolds' ranch in Jupiter FL. My father was the sales rep for Purina and BR had a big grand opening party with lots of celebs (Lee Majors, Farah, Bert C, Dinah, etc). I was about 10 and kept asking the cover band to play Bobby Bare's "Marie Laveu," and they humored me by playing it a bunch of times. I got a bunch of autographs, but who knows what happened to all of them... Good times for a kid.
