Paul Newman and I go (went) way back . . .

Back in 1970, during my freshman year at Baylor University, my roommate, Linda, and I hung up a huge poster of Paul Newman in our room in Collins dorm. We were fanatic fans. That and our homemade sign, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me" -Philippians 4:13, made up our decor. Well that, and our blue and green bedspreads and curtains. Newman died this past week and I'm thinking Linda is grieving, too.

Me too. I saw him in "The Sting" -- my freshman year in college. Everyone else fell for Robert Redford, and I flipped for Paul Newman and wondered why I hadn't noticed him before.

I even like his salad dressing!
