In the Happy Days episode from season
2 called Haunted Richie Cunningham
(RON Howard) was scared by a dummy and later Practical Joker BAG (Neil J.
Schwartz ) scared everyone else except
Richie as the ghost of Magnolia Sumpson .
POTSIE (Anson Williams) and Ralph
(DONNY Most ) and Daphne (Hillary
Horan ) were really spooked and scared
By BAGs Practical Joke ..
I liked these ghosts:
Large Marge (Alice Nunn) from
Pee Wees Big Adventure and
Molly Turgis (Rene Riano)from
Green Acres.

I confess that I like the scent of some pipe tobaccos. When I was little I'd open my daddy's tobacco pouch and get a whiff. But he was an ex-cigarrette smoker, so instead of puffing, he'd take big drags on it. And smoking did get him in the end even though he had quit. 😥

Yeah it usually gets you in the end. Was watching clips from Merv and Johnny Carson and everyone is smoking. Weird.
