    Oh god no…No my little margie”
    what a wonderful comedian actress Gail Storm was!
    I first was introduced to watching her in the mid 60s tv shows when I was a kid in my teens.
    She had such a funny style of fitting jokes into the tv shows, it was hilariously funny.
    What was the thing Gail used to say after everything failed in her hair brain ideas?
    Oh yeah, make that silly sound” meaning she was
    in trouble now!
