BEVERLY HILLS - Willie Nelson is 77-years-old and he can still ride a horse just as good as he did when he was 21, which truth be told really ain't worth diddly squat.
Those words came from 85-year-old actress Cloris Leachman who had a brief fling with the man known as "Roach Clip" Willie 56 years ago.
Leachman spoke with Carolina Chipotle of Bedroom Pillow Talk in her Beverly Hills home and told her that she had first met Nelson when he performed at the old Jack Be Nimble Jack Be Quick Bar & Grill in Forth Worth during the summer of 1955.
Cloris said that she was 29, and Willie was 21, and that he had just finished performing with his band when he went over to the table where she was sitting with her hair stylist Mervin of Monrovia and her pedicurist Fernando of The San Fernando Valley and asked her if she would like to join him in his tour bus for a night smoke.
Leachman who said that she was a bit on the naive side back then asked him what the hell he meant by a night smoke. After he told her she replied, "Well, oh what the heck, maybe just one."
Cloris said that when she woke up the next day she was laying down on a bench in a highway rest stop in Waco.
She said she tried calling up Willie to find out what the hell had happened but the 'sumbitch' never returned her calls.
SIDENOTE: Cloris smiled as she said that she recently received a brown folder in the mail which contained about a dozen extremely intimate photographs that Willie's bass guitar player had taken of her and Willie that summer night in 1955, back in Fort Worth when she and Willie Nelson did a whole lotta mattress bumping in the back of his tour bus.
