The Morning Run

Not much happening out on the road this morning, but that Rocky Racoon that got hit by the car last week is starting to decompose and he will be all but gone soon.

There’s a certain feel of moisture in the air that makes the temps seem colder than they actually are and if this is not Fall, I don’t know what is.

The road is a good place to think up Wikipedia searches and today it got me thinking about The Missing Link(Dewey Robertson) and Tony Schiavonne. If you get these people in your head, your mind starts to wander and wonder, “what ever happened to?”…..

Todd Donahoe came up in the Wikipedia search which came from thoughts about his old/former “Time Out for Trivia Show”, on the now defunct SCORE Network. That might take you to the SETN Network which covered NASCAR and was Greensboro-based and run by Jim Wigglesworth.

SCORE might also take you to Continental Wrestling from Mobile/Pensacola and then there’s no telling where you might end up. Dutch Mantell is lurking somewhere right around the corner.

The Morning Run can become or turn into the mid-day run if you’re not careful and you then you have to find a way to get back home….

Long live ‘The Morning Run” and don’t let the afternoon die!


  1. I, having grown up here, of course knew him from the Old Rebel Show, but I later had the delight of working for a little while with his mother.

  2. Jim Longworth and Jim Wigglesworth…..Two men very similar in name that both had the opportunity and pleasure to work with the Rebel.

    If Jim Wigglesworth could have found some way where he could have grabbed all rights to the NASCAR races on TV with his SETN Network, he would have been sitting real pretty these days…..(He was very innovative and quite creative.)

    The last I heard he was selling real estate.

    On the other hand, Jim Longworth is still writing for YES Weekly and doing the public service show on TV48.

    Jim Wigglesworth and Jim Longworth, so close, but yet so far apart in 2009………
