October 1, 1927 — October 19, 2010
The world lost an icon this week. Tom Bosley passed away at age 83, an American icon and a better father than Cliff Huxtable could ever hope to be. I'm at least certain that Howard Cunningham could kick Cliff's ass around the block, given the need.
Certainly he was a better father than Danny Tanner. And even Joanie Cunningham could kick his ass.
I grew up watching Happy Days, fictionally based in my home town and therefore riveting to an eight-year-old me. However, my favorite Mr. C memory came later in life, watching the Christmas episode where Howard was going to drive Fonzie to Waukesha to see his family for Christmas, and wouldn't be back for many, many hours. I lived in Waukesha at the time, and even without the Interstate, there's no reason it should take two hours to drive from ANYWHERE in Milwaukee to Waukesha.
That Mr. Cunningham, he's good people.
Any other Happy Days memories you'd like to share?
