The trouble with unemployment is that the minute you wake up in the morning, you’re on the job.”   —   Slappy White

(And let me tell you, folks . . . it’s exhausting!  I haven’t even thought of Slappy White in ages!  Of course, he’s been gone for nearly 24 years, but I still remember him.  How can you forget a name like that?  Wikipedia says he had been married to two different singers, LaVern Baker and Pearl Bailey.  However, neither of the lady’s pages mention Slappy!  Beware the internet, folks!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    You’re right about Pearl Bailey. Her article doesn’t mention Slappy at all.

    But, LaVern has an entry in a different paragraph:

    “Baker and the comedian Slappy White were married in 1959. After the couple was divorced in 1969, Baker signed on for a USO tour.”

    You are correct, sir! Usually they put “Spouse:” info in the inset on the right-hand side of the page. But, not this time! — YUR
