Emmitt Kelly III wanted to become weary willy but a bit of bad luck happened and he was not able to achieve becoming weary willy. I am lucky I saw emmitt kelly sr. as weary willy in the early 50ís and emmitt Kelly jr as weary willy in the late 60ís and 70ís.
I guess this points to the number of days I have been around.
Wow, that's some interesting information.... but this clown will forever be known and remebered in my mind as "Abbey's Dad".
If I ever see him again - anywhere in my lifetime - anywhere in the world.... I will remember him - I will refer to him as - "Abbey's Dad"
