Bob Barker to retire

Bob BarkerI'm sad to hear that, though he's soon to be 83. Something about "The Price Is Right," Barker's "reign" to end this coming June, is comforting, perhaps since it's been on television for so many years. I especially like watching the "Showcase Showdown," at the end of each show.

Boy, this post really shows my intellectual nature, doesn't it? I don't know...part of enjoying life is enjoying simple pleasures, even if one them is a game show.

"The Price Is Right" has been running since September 4, 1972, which I was in second grade. Given that I enjoy working with animal shelters, I'm glad to hear that Barker will end his final show as he ends all his shows, with the admonition "Help control the pet population. Have your pets spayed or neutered." Good for him.
