'Cause, y'know, it might not last ...

So, I saw out of the corner of my eye a promo for the new CBC TV series jPod today, based on the Douglas Coupland book, and I said to myself, "That can't be Alan Thicke, can it?" So I googled, and end up at Thicke's official website, and, indeed, it is Thicke, whom I've always liked, so I may have to give the show a try (plus, as you can see above, the show also stars Sherry Miller -- every Canadian male of my generation had a crush on her from her sexy Spumante Bambino commercials).

But I was amused by this line in Thicke's official bio: "Alan currently is married to Tanya Callau." Ah, Al, you big romantic, you! Friendly bit of advice as we slide toward Valentine's Day: drop the adverb. ;)

For a man in his 60's Alan Thicke looks pretty good for his age. I should end up so lucky.

Oops! Fixed in original. Sorry. I've barely got time to write these posts ... :)

fReminds me of a comment heard on BBC's "My Music":
"I was saying to my first wife, Anne (I call her my first wife, we're still married, but it keeps her on her toes)"
