Acting coaches in Hollywood were always telling me to use my hands and body more. But that was never me. I just breathe and sometimes it doesn't look as if I'm doing that.
My only regret in life is that I didn't spend as much time with my kids as I now wish I had.
Just the other day, it seems, the kids were running through the house, slamming doors, breaking glass, making noise. Time goes by so quickly. Sometimes everything seems so fleeting.
Catch a falling star and put it in your pocket / Never let it fade away / Catch a falling star and put it in your pocket / Save it for a rainy day
The bluest skies . . . are in Seattle.
I worked with the world's greatest talents and then went home to the world's greatest woman. It was, and is, a great life.
That I can't relate to today's music or morals doesn't make either necessarily bad. Just different. I leave the judgements to others.

We also own a little boat and I'm like a kid with it. I take off early in the morning, fishing rod in tow, and just drift about the ocean all day.
People have always thought that I wasn't ambitious. They judged by appearances and were fooled. I was competitive. I wanted success and was willing to work for it.
I had 13 weeks off and I would pack up the family and drive to some mountain retreat where we could be together and fish all day. I loved it. I needed it.
For the amount of talent I had (and I couldn't dance, act, or tell a joke) I enjoyed a tremendous career.
But today, I feel the genuine warmth, the affection, and although I may joke about it, I am touched.
In many ways, that affection is the real reward for 56 years in the business. Although the money ain't exactly bad either.
Actually, I would love to make a music video. Maybe it would finally put to rest those persistent rumours that have followed me throughout my career - particularly when I was on camera performing - that I had died.
The business has changed greatly since my day.
