My brother-in-law from my first marriage was a professor at Rutgers. Bob would go up and visit them. He’d just drop in on them. Their children knew Bob better than we did, I think. He loved kids. When he came out here he would take our kids to the movie house to see “It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World” with Jonathan Winters and then he’d take them down to Disneyland. They loved their Uncle Bob and he spoke their language. Well, he would sort of use some of the expressions that came out of the generation at that time, “That’s rad,” and stuff like that.
