We end the month with a man only a few months older than me, TV handyman Eric Stromer. He was the one constant through the entire run of Clean Sweep. Eric was such a goof. The episode he did in Carmen Miranda drag was hilarious. And he still got all the carpentry done. He was also really clever, often coming up with neat elements to augment the designer's vision for the rooms. He still works on various home improvement shows.
It's amazing to me that he's fifty, 'cause he looks nowhere near that old. Just like me, if I do say so myself. And I do. I guess fifty is the new forty. Or maybe thirty.
Remember Brian Unger on The Daily Show back in the late '90s? I do. That's where Brian first caught my eye. Funny, dryly sarcastic, and looking like he had a pretty good body under the suit he always wore on the show. Not much has change in the last fifteen years or so. Quite an accomplishment.
