Quite a round up of stories you got there, Ruth.

Poor Leif; I love how they described him as "doe-eyed"...his mom is in denial, no doubt. And no, I do not recall him being on CHIPS.

As for Captain Kirk's kidney stone - Only in America – Beam me up, Scotty!

I used to have posters of Leif all over my room as a teenager... well middle school. Now, according to that picture he's scary looking. *shudder*

Ruth said...

Oh yes, Pax... Leif was on CHIPS, and it was a TWO PART EPISODE, no less. I believe he sang at the roller disco, and was having some sort of conflict with his agent. Ahh.... the golden days of television...

Teresa - he is scary! Did you see the mugshot? Ugh!!
