    ?Parker Beam hospitalized?

    I recieved an e-mail from a contact of mine in Bardstown last night.
    He said that he heard that Parker Beam had a stroke and was at the Mayo Clinic and would not be retuning to his job at Heaven Hill.
    I did a Google search on the subject and got nothing.
    I hope this is just a terrible rumor.
    True or not I wish the Beam family good health, happiness and success.

    Nothing on Google News or twitter as of 12:40 ET. Assuming the worst, and hoping for the best, Mr. Beam is in my prayers.

    I wish him the best of health and send prayers regardless of the validity of this story. God knows I have enjoyed the fruit of his hand so he deserves my best wishes.

    That is good to hear thanks for clearing that up.

    I think Bettye Jo's father has been ill recently, maybe Oscar's source got confused.

    That is great news, tell Parker that us guys on SB.com were concerned.
    Yeah, how the hell do these things get started?

    Also I'm leaning on the guy that told me this, more later, hopefully.

    Hi Oscar. I just learned some disturbing news. Parker suffered a stroke last week and may not be returning to HH. I was toldhe is at the Mayo Clinic.
    Just though I would pass the info along to those who enjoy his work.

    I did a cut and paste (above) on the e-mail I recieved from what I thought was a reliable source.
    I'm trying to track down where he heard this rumor.

    I just heard from him and he said he heard this false info from a liquor store owner, didn't say who it was.
    Makes sense to me, I've dealt with retailers for several decades and they are the most clueless group of people that I know of.

    Yeah, mostly. There are exceptions. I'm lucky to know one.
