It was yet another recent weekly night of “Low Jinks” fun for America’s oldest theatrical club, The Lambs, established in 1874. (https://the-lambs.org/) It had been ten years earlier when your humble correspondent had first invited his best friend and 1960’s University of Texas college buddy, Bob
Pizzitola, to be his guest for that same traditional weekly night of LAMBS frivolity, when members gather for dinner while enjoying spontaneous song performances from their fellow Lambs. On that occasion Bob, a Houston area financial consultant, was delighted to meet Lambs Club favorite, actress
Joyce Randolph, who is perhaps best remembered for her iconic role as Trixie on the ever-popular TV program, “The Honeymooners.”
Joyce graciously consented to be photographed with Bob back in those days when film still had to be developed. Sadly, the resulting picture was so blurred that no one in the photo was recognizable.
Bob’s disappointment lingered for a decade until a New York business trip brought him, and his handsome son and business partner, Dow Pizzitola, back from Texas several weeks ago. At that time, on a pleasant summer evening, The People’s Critic was proud to once again be host for a return visit to The Lambs, this time joined as well by his namesake, Dow. As luck would have it, Lambs Club regular, Miss Randolph, was again on hand and cheerfully willing to try again with the elusive photo. The result brought smiles all around.
