The Thoughts For The Day!

At the end of every episode of The Bill Cosby Radio Program, Bill would give us his "Thought For The Day." In the first few weeks, he did this as "The Turtle." After that, he appeared as "The Old Man On The Mountain." And after that, beginning with week 30 and through the remainder of the series, as himself. Enjoy these thoughts of the day while drinking a Coke.
