    Have you ever had a random thought about someone just days before they passed away? That happened to me 2 days ago with Andy Rooney. I don't know why but suddenly I thought of his wit and wisdom and thought how much it will be missed when he is gone.

    I'm glad he got to do what he enjoyed all of his life. Not many people are able to do that. RIP Andy and thank you for your service to our county in WWII.

    Someone posted one of his clips on my facebook, just yesterday. She was a RTF/Journalism major at UT. Strange how intuition sometimes works.

    I used to watch 60 Minutes with my family and always looked forward to seeing him at the end of the show. I even bought one of his books when I was in my early teens because I enjoyed his writing.

    I was very sad to see that he was retiring, but I think it would have pleased him, in retrospect, to know that he worked until nearly the very end.

    RIP, Andy.

    Talk about irony. I thought about him about a week ago and wondered if he was still alive. At the time I thought, where did that random thought come from?

    In my best Andy Rooney voice...

    "Did you ever wonder if there's an afterlife? I'll get back to you soon on that one"...

    Interesting guy and you KNOW he'd love to get back to us on that one...

    RIP...

    Whoa, he just retired. First episode of 60 Minutes I'd watched in years. Wow. RIP.


    Andy would be highly irritated at your false use of the word irony. :laugh2:

    I recently bought a bottle of Aspirin and fished out the usual wad of cotton and immediately thought of Rooney. Good writer, loyal Giants fan and a blast to watch. He'll be missed. R.I.P. , Andy Rooney.
