Looks like we skipped Pernell Roberts the other day.
He's riding 'round that big Ponderosa in the sky now.

Alexander M. Haig Jr., Commanding White House Aide, Dies at 85.

"He knew, the Reagan aide Lyn Nofziger once said, that 'the third paragraph of his obit' would detail his conduct in the hours after Mr. Reagan was shot and wounded on March 30, 1981."

And sure enough, it does! shocked

That brings back memories! I loved watching Davy Crockett when I was a kid. My grandfather, a furrier by trade, made coonskin caps for all the grandchildren. I don't know if they were really made from raccoons but at that tender age, I didn't even think about it.

Fess Parker, rest in peace.

RE kids today just wouldn't get it

Yeah, they'd get it. The king of the wild frontier is timeless, as are/were Hoppy (Hopalong Cassidy), Roy Rogers, et alii.
Now, Swamp Fox might be a different story, but Leslie could pull it off.

John Wooden
99 years young

The story mentions the name of the court at UCLA. And now, the rest of the story...

When UCLA first approached Wooden to ask if he would like having the court named the John Wooden Court, he said no. Only if his departed and beloved wife's name were included would the Wizard of Westwood give his blessing. So the response was that UCLA would be happy to name it the John and Nell Wooden Court. The former coach again said no. As the story indicates, the court is named the Nell and John Wooden Court, as he insisted.
