a sad post today.. recently i heard the news that joe clokey had passed.
this came as quite a shock, a young & healthy guy like joe, i've been sad about it ever since.
i will always remember how he emailed me many years ago when he was setting up the 'new' prema website, i'd had my gumbyland site up for awhile already & i was thrilled to set up a link. since then joe has commented here at the lost & found blog, helping us out with gumby bendy toy info, & i've only known him to be a genuinely good & friendly guy, keeping all of gumby world going & following art's legacy.. i'm so glad he was able to get the gumby imagined book finished, & although i've never corresponded with his wife, joan, i hear she is a strong woman who will keep all things gumby going forward as he would have.
i send my love to the family.. something i have learned over my nearly 20 years of running gumbyland is that gumby folk are always such good people..
you'll be missed, joe clokey, son of art, brother of gumby, friend to all..
