    Don Knotts passed away today at the age of 81. Most notably remembered as Barney on the Andy Griffith show.
    Only allowed to carry one bullet, in his pocket, through the entire series. :(

    Sad indeed. He is the same age as my Dad, really makes me think. Especially he has a surgery coming up this Monday.

    May God bless them both!

    He was like around all my growing up years. I will miss seeing him and hearing his voice.

    I'm sure if he could speak to us now he'd say -- "NIP IT!" He'll be missed. :(

    I remember the movie that he did as a bird watcher and they did a playboy type magazine under his name without him knowing. And the one when he was a fish.

    Via con Dios Don we'll miss you.


    Best wishes to you and yours Marlint. Hope all goes well Monday. Give us a heads up on how he fares. My f-in-law is almost 81 and has been in and out of the hosp. for a few weeks now. I can relate.

    see ya
