Blackberries----NOW YOU ARE UP MY ALLEY Robert Sheridan bobsheridan bobsheridan@earthlink.net "Elderberry wine?"

So said old Mr. Witherspoon, in 'Arsenic and Old Lace,' to the two old ladies who offered him a glass of their finest home-made,as he sat on the large steamer trunk in their parlor. Inside the trunk was their last victim.

I was Mr. Witherspoon in the Curtis '58 Senior Play production, directed by the late Mr. Quinn, later of Johnny Carson fame, and starring Joe Mancuso as Teddy Roosevelt.
