He Packed A Tight Suitcase

He packed a tight suitcase was Ed McMahon 's answer to the everlasting question, did he and Johnny hang out. This was in Ed's obituary. Johnny was a loner and didn't have a lot friends. I looked up this phrase in my slang dictionaries. Couldn't find it. Show biz folk really don't hang out after work in some great Shangri- La place. We mortals long for an Olympus.


  1. I met Johhny Carson on April 3, 1972 at Lincoln Center in New York City. It was the same night I met Charlie Chaplin. Very pleasant man. I remember he was smoking Benson and Hedges cigarettes.

    Cool blog, Ray!
