My Favorite Red Skelton memory
I was in Burris High School in Muncie, Indiana. Red Skelton was going to visit my Drama class. We were going to perform mime skits. I came to the class room early to rehearse with my partner. We were going to do a act about a dog that would not do a trick. I was the Dog. I was on the floor as a dog when someone opened the door then closed it. It was Red Skelton. We did a double take. Could not believe it was Red. We went outside and he was signing autographs to the students. I grabbed the newspaper and got his autograph. I wonder what he thought when he saw me on all fours.
