Yesterday, the Civee and I took a drive to Circleville. Didn’t really have a reason, we just hit the road. And yes, I knew the pumpkin show is a few weeks away- but we just wanted to go somewhere.
When we got there, we visited the Ted Lewis Museum, a quaint little memorial to one of America’s biggest entertainers about 80 years ago or so. I had heard of Lewis from his performance in Abbot and Costello’s Hold That Ghost, but thought he was just some lounge singer.
Probably the most entertaining part of the trip was the tour guide, one of Lewis’ most devoted fans. As she put it:
“Well, for me, there’s my God, my husband, then Ted Lewis, then Tecumseh.”
It was a fun little trip.
