Some folks have the opinion that “All things happen for a reason.” That is a difficult thought to swallow when really bad things happen. However, when we look back at embarrassing or really bad things that happen to us personally, we can often see how we learned from the occasion or perhaps see why we were part of the event.
This might involve a Rod Serling “Twilight Zone” type of experience. Too young for “The Twilight Zone?” You don’t know what you are missing.
As best as I can remember, this event took place between 1967 and 1968. It was around my birthday and it involved “Cousin Cliff” Holman. Cousin Cliff had a children’s television show in and around Birmingham, Alabama in the 1950’s and 60’s where he showed cartoons, did magic, passed out “rubbing rocks,” and made a lot of fans. Children absolutely loved him.
