Last evening we were watching PBS on TV and they were doing a special on Victor Borge, The great Dane. We have always found his humor delightful and funny. This year would have been his 100th birthday. What a beautiful, loving smile he always had and his talent on the piano was never fully seen by his audience.
We were so fortunate to see him in person in around 1997. He was performing at a local college and we were so anxious to see him. He had to cancel once because of illness, but he finally did show up and we were so happy to be there. I remember he walked on stage and stood quietly for a very long moment and then, finally, a huge puff of smoke came out of his mouth. All he said was "Mexican food" and the place went up for grabs.
Victor Borge, a wonderful talent, beloved man and such an entertainer. I am so glad that the TV specials can remind us how much we enjoyed this man.
