Philadelphia Trip - Part 1 - The Stoogeum

Back in the early 1960s, I was a big fan of the Three Stooges when it was shown on WPIX-TV in New York with Officer Joe Bolton as the host.  As time went on, I moved on to other things and lost interest in Moe, Larry, and  Curly (Shemp).  Some years back Lee began to watch the 3 Stooges on the AMC Cable TV network.  To say the least he loved them, but did not outgrow them as I did.  Karen taped hours of show for him.  We also bought a few DVDs of full lenght movies.

A few months ago Karen saw on article in New York Newsday about the Three Stooges Fan Club and  Stoogeum, a museum devoted to the Three Stooges located near Philadelphia.  Thre are close to 100,000 artifacts of Stooges memorabilia.  I knew that I wanted to go to the American Chemical Society National Meeting in Philadelphia in August. I thought we should visit the Stoogeum on the way.  Since a picture is worth 1000 words please see this YouTube video 

From there we drove to downtown Philadelphia to Comfort Inn by Penn's Landing right by the Delaware River.  I was able to pick up WABC radio very weakly so I listened to Saturday Night Oldies  for a short time.  I heard the section of Mark Simone interviewing Cousin Bruce Morrow.
