Which Ink Spots? The original Ink Spots were from Indiana, and after their disbanding a lot of touring outfits used the name. I looked but couldn't find any member of the original group who had a connection to Fort Worth.

Not sure. My grandparents had a used furniture store on Vickery Street. My grandfather said he sold them furniture 'on time' (dollar down and a dollar a week) and they skipped out on the bill... He said they got famous and left town.

I love Tamron Hall but she is no longer with the network (NBC/MSNBC).  Unfortunately, some "genius" at NBC decided to replace Tamron and Al Roker on hour 3 of the Today Show (Today's Take) with an hour of the Megyn Kelly Show who recently departed FOX.  You can be certain that I will follow Tamron wherever she lands.  I have feeling Matt Lauer is behind all of this.

Ratings and money.  The Internet hasn't made broadcast television any tamer when it comes to sacrificing one star for another.

Charles Tandy didn't start Tandy Leather. His dad started it. Norton Hinckley and Dave L. Tandy partnered to start the Hinckley-Tandy Leather Company and concentrated their efforts on selling sole leather and other supplies to shoe repair dealers in Texas.

Oswald would be in the 1957 Yellow Jacket, not 1956, but he's not even in that one, most likely dropping out before class pictures were taken.

Actually, he is on page 104 in one of those candid shots that get funny captions, he just has no class mugshot.
