9/17/14 -

TODAY IS MY FATHER'S BIRTHDAY.  HE WAS BORN IN 1900 AND AS SOON AS THE HEAT WAVE GOES AWAY,  I WILL BE GOING TO THE CEMETERY TO MAKE ARRANGEMENTS FOR HIS MARKER INSTALLATION.  THEN, I WILL TAKE CARE OF MY MOM'S AS SHE SURVIVED HIM BY 20 YEARS.

THIS MORNING, AS WE SAT DOWN IN OUR FAMILY ROOM TO HAVE BREAKFAST FROM OUR LAP TRAYS, (WE ARE VERY INFORMAL AT HOME) WE WATCHED THE CLASSIC MOVIE "SUDDENLY" WITH FRANK SINATRA AND STERLING HAYDEN, A CHILD ACTOR NAMED KIM CHARNEY, AND NANCY GATES.  IT NEVER FAILS THAT I LOOK UP ACTORS' NAMES AND THEIR WHEREABOUTS T RIGHT AFTER I FINISH WATCHING AN OLD MOVIE.  "SUDDENLY" WAS FILMED IN 1954 BUT I NOTICED THAT THERE WAS A REMAKE ONCE OR TWICE SINCE THEN.  ANYWAY, WHEN I LOOKED UP THE CHILD'S NAME ON THE INTERNET, HIS NAME TURNED OUT TO BE KIM CHARNEY.  BUT THE NAME DR. KIM J. CHARNEY KEPT POPPING UP AND HIS GOOD LOOKS RESEMBLED THAT OF THE CHILD  ACTOR.  I THEN WENT INTO ASK.COM AND FINALLY FOUND THE ANSWER TO MY QUESTION.  DR. KIM J. CHARNEY IS ONE AND THE SAME PERSON AS KIM CHARNEY, THE ACTOR.  HE IS AN M.D. - SURGEON WORKING OUT OF ORANGE COUNTY.  NOW, I NEED TO KNOW IF NANCY GATES IS PHYLLIS GATES' SISTER, THE YOUNG LADY WHO WORKED AT THE MOVIE STUDIO WHERE ROCK HUDSON WAS EMPLOYED.  I UNDERSTAND THAT THE STUDIO FIXED HER MARRIAGE TO ROCK HUDSON TO COVER UP HIS GAY LIFE.  THEY DIVORCED A COUPLE OF YEARS LATER.
