Burrand our friend, Max Milo dined at our house in the early 70's. I was havingtrouble with the gravy I was making when Burr took over the process and gave methe best lesson in the proper preparation of gravy I ever had. Bun left a jarof homemade salsa, "Madame 0's Salsa," named for one of his puppets,Madame Oglepuss. I never used the salsa, but kept it as a remembrance of agreat man and a fun time.
Istill get goose-bumps thinking of the time I heard Kukla (Burr) perform thesong "Little Lamb" (from the Broadway musical Gypsy) acappella to a hushed (and goose-bump covered, I'm sure) audience in the HopeCollege Theatre. I also have a vague memory of watching "Kukla, Fran andOllie" on a black and white TV, when I was less than four. Kukla'sperformance at Hope was something I will never forget.
