I've been too busy to check the entry pages of this useless blog until now to notice a most unwelcome increase in a particular bit of Internet traffic.
Meinhart Raabe was 94 years old when he passed away in Orange Park, FL. The J.R. was acquainted with him by way of business and I spoke with him but once, mistaking his high voice for that of "Mrs. Raabe" to my shame.
I never knew that Mr. Raabe had also enjoyed the fun of driving the Oscar Meyer Weinermobile about the country for 30 years. A long and not unpleasant life was Meinhart's lot, fortunate more than most.
He'll be most sincerely missed.
