Re: Do you remember Jack LaLanne?

Yes I remember him well.  My friend and I would do exercises at her house along with her mom.  My mom would never exercise with me ever.  

 

I remember the jumpsuit, his wife named Elaine and his dog.  I do not remember his ballet slippers!  LOL

My son and  I would watch him everyday. My son's first  pet at 5 was a kitten we got from kids giving one away by a grocery store. He named him Happy and that was Jacks dogs name.

Yep, my mother used to watch him when I was small.  I loved his two white German Shepherds, and recall his wife would come on the show once and a while. 

 

I remember when he was older swimming around dragging boats until his wife put a stop to that. 

 

I also remember him selling some type of juicer.  He always seemed like a very nice man.

I also loved his German Shepherds. (I always had German Shepherds.) My mother also had a white one she named Dollar.

I chuckled about his wife putting a stop to him dragging boats around!  I do not remember him doing that or selling anything.

  I would watch him on TV and workout with him.

Oh yeah, I remember!  Jack towed that boat to Alcatraz.  Yikes...that bay water is scudsy.

I have a pic of him taped to the inside of my snack cabinate.

His dog's name was Happy.
