Where's Wally?

Melaine just completed beginning knitting and did a very fine job. Everyone chatted as they learned to cast on, knit and purl. Melaine, we all discovered, is somewhat of a celebrity or she has the most uncanny luck of being in the right place at the right time to meet celebrities.

She brought in pictures of her posing with George Clooney, Noah Wiley, Diane Keaton, and last but certainly not least, Tony Dow. Remember Tony? He played Wally on Leave It to Beaver. I certainly hadn't thought about Tony Dow in many, many years and yet there he was with Melaine, a much older and grayer Wally Cleaver.

Oddly enough, I was flipping through the channels over the weekend and there on VH1 was a child star biography featuring, among others, ol' Tony Dow. It seems Tony went on from child stardom to be a director and producer. Did you know Wally directed Swamp Thing, the 1990 TV series and that he produced The Adventures of Captain Zoom in Outer Space and It Came from Outer Space II? Wally to sci-fi - it must have been June's influence.

Ah, the odd things you learn when you're knitting.
