Many years ago, Lawsuit came up with a song called "All Hail, Cloris Leachman," a silly song that never got recorded.

Well....Cloris Leachman has died, at age 94, and Ned has a radio show.  He decided to make a recording of the song.  It was a major undertaking with Jeri writing horn arrangements in Boston and emailing them to Timbertrout Studio in Oakland.  Ned and Marta went to Timbertrout and many others of the band, who are all over the country, had Jeri's music and played their parts and sent it by email.  KC Bowman (who runs Timbertrout) put the whole thing together and Ned got it on the show for Tuesday.  It's great, especially the horn part toward the end.  Marta even dusted off her old trombone to play.

The kids' cousin Stacie Seifrit Griffin posted a couple of pictures of herself with Cloris Leachman and someone else.  She wrote, "we were talking about Young Frankenstein and I asked Cloris to make the Frau face. She was supposed to do it for the camera but she did at me. In the second picture, we busted out laughing because even in her 90s, she still had it."

All Hail, Cloris Leachman.  May you be having a nice reunion with the rest of the cast of Young Frankenstein.
