1Published an article on John Wayne in 1980 in Firehouse Magazine, establishing three distinct connections between the actor and the firefighting profession: (1) While in high school in Glendale, CA., he'd leave his dog Duke at the local fire station while he delivered his paper route. The firemen nicknamed him "Duke" after the dog. It stuck to him the rest of his life. (2) In 1964 while filming "Circus World" a stunt fire suddenly raged out of control and almost cost him his life. (3) In the l968 film "Hellfighters" he played a role based on real life firefighter Red Adair.

Specializing in the bad guys of the genre, he wrote stories on such rough-and-tumble characters as Corsica Joe, Tojo Yamamoto, Treacherous Phillips and Spider Galento along with Spider's brother Mario and Mario's wife Smoky plus two National Wrestling Alliance world heavyweight champions of that era: Lou Thesz and Gene Kiniski.

12Rode in a limo from LAX to the Beverly Wilshire Hotel with Oprah Winfrey when she was in town to promote "The Color Purple". They discussed, among other things, growing up in Mississippi, he in Booneville, she in Kosciusko--about 130 miles apart.
13Wrote Drama-Logue articles on four Screen Actors Guild presidents during the 80s: past presidents Howard Keel and Dennis Weaver, future president Melissa Gilbert and the current president at that time Ed Asner, plus an article on Gilbert's future husband Bruce Boxleitner when he was starring in "Scarecrow and Mrs. King".
14Wed on February 29, 1972, they observe their anniversary every four years; on their "fifth" anniversary--celebrating 20 years of marriage--they threw themselves a Hollywood party catered by Aunt Kizzy's Back Porch.
15Married actress Brenda Musgrove; they met in the Red Balloon Players when they portrayed brother and sister in an original play, "The Dippy Witches".
16Bought their first house in 1978 in Los Angeles adjacent to Hancock Park where they settled in with loads of critters. At one time they had a total of 14: 3 dogs, 4 cats, 1 rabbit, 2 guinea pigs, 2 ducks, 2 parakeets. Once on a trip to the pet store for food supplies the checkout clerk said, "Geez, you folks must have your own zoo!".
17Met Muhammad Ali who lived in Hancock Park at that time about 3:00 am at a 24-hour gas station. Gary remarked, "You getting ready to fight for the title again?" Ali replied, "No, I'm too old." Gary said, "What about that saying you're only as old as you feel?" Ali shot back, "That makes me 90 then.".
