LLOYD THAXTON MOUSE PACK
Welcome to The Lloyd Thaxton Mouse Pack.
Why Mouse Pack? Back in the 60s a famous Hollywood group of friends formed “The Rat Pack.” The star members were Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Peter Lawford, and Joey Bishop. They filled out the group with a host of their equally famous friends. When you are a celebrity, it is hard to just go out as one couple and have a good time. Too many admirers can spoil the fun. The Rat Pack consisted of a group of friends who could go out together or have social functions at each other’s homes.
It’s incredible that, after 40 years off the air, I still have fans. The emails I’ve received in the past year touched my heart because of the many wonderful and sincere comments.
During one of my more zany musings, I thought about the Hollywood Rat Pack It gave me the idea of how to put together all my long time loyal fans and hopefully make a warm group of our own. We could sit at our computers and discuss things that were relevant in the 60s and how they are affecting our lives now. We are the Baby Boomers, the most powerful group in America. It’s time we all got booming.
Obviously, I couldn’t call this the “Rat Pack.” However, sitting at my computer with hand poised lightly on my mouse, I suddenly thought, “MOUSE PACK!” After all, I have a lot of stories to tell about the guests I had on the show and celebrities I knew like Steve McQueen and Marlon Brando (already posted). And, all the other exciting things that went on behind the scene of this wonderful era called “The 60s.” I’m sure all you “Mousepacketeers” have great stories of your own to share.
