I just talked to Ernestine!!
« on: March 28, 2013, 04:49:18 PM »
Anybody remember the character Ernestine from Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In?  Well, I just got a "promotional offer" over the phone, and I swear it was her!! 

The same very nasal, somewhat drawn out words with that little bit of condensation thrown in for good measure.  Although, there were no snorting chuckles. 

I miss Ernestine. 
It's not what we gather along the way that matters.  It's what we scatter.

I do remember her - I loved Ernestine!  Almost as much as Edith Ann  :)

Cool!
Coincidentally, Lily Tomlin (Ernestine, Edith Ann) was on "The Talk" today.  I don't usually watch that show, but glad I had it on and saw her.

Ernestine may not still be around but Lili Tomlin certainly is.  May we enjoy her style of comedy for many, many years to come.

At 73 Lily looks great.  (She wears a grey/white wig on "Malibu Country" where she plays Reba McIntire's mother.)

And she's McGee's Grandma Penny on NCIS.

On GMA, Lily said that she based her character in 'Malibu Country' on her own mother.  That's a movie I have to see.
