Jan-30-16  offramp: When I see his name I think, for some reason, of this verse about Charles II:

We have a pretty witty king,
Whose word no man relies on;
He never said a foolish thing,
Nor ever did a wise one.

  MissScarlett: From his <BDE> obituary notice, of August 15th 1915, Sect.V p.3:

<He was of quiet demeanor and generally well liked. Before coming to this country, he was an expert on the trapeze and professionally engaged in a German circus. This career was cut short by a serious accident, which compelled his retirement.>

Mar-03-18  zanzibar: Interesting tidbit from <Missy>. I have a portrait of Roething, and he certainly does look like a athletic trapeze artist in it.

Of course, it would be hard to guess from current photos of OJ that he was once a star running back, either.

(In my younger days I would have submitted the photo to <CG>, but I'm currently boycotting until we get a "dropbox policy" in place.)

  MissScarlett: Pure coincidence that I found this on the same day I learnt that Anatoly Lein (kibitz #77) was also apparently an acrobat.
