Damnit! My search skills are sorely lacking today.

It’s unfortunate, too. She was going to do a guest shot on The Osbournes – guess what they planned to name the episode. :smiley:

Ozzie and… No way! Boo!

That’s sad about Harriet. I had hoped she would outlive me. At my age, there was some comfort in the thought.
