What did the father on My Three Sons do for living?

Thanks George. I don't know how many of these I got right, but the fact that my mind is cluttered with enough useless trivia to even under take answering your question shows I need to spend a lot, much more, really need to many, San Chins, and clear some space for the next century. By the way, what was the name of Dale Evan's horse?

My, oh my ... I got them all right!! As a younger student (early 30's) remarked to me the other night
"Gosh, you are old.." when he came up with this supposed "brain teaser."

What were roller skate wheels made of originally?

The answer is of course, wood, (no, not the little metal ones you had on the streets and used a key to take them on and off .. any one out there remember them?)
