TWO MORE DOWN AND 5 TO GO
I finished Iron Orchid which was really good...I like Stuart Woods very much.Then I just finished James Patterson's 5th Horseman which was super...It got tossed in there late as it didn't come with the first batch of books that I ordered. I am working on Double Tap now...Steve Martini...slow going at first...but is picking up..
Sad news, Don Knotts died and just when I thought I was ok with that....Darren mcGavin died...oh man... I loved him....remember him as a kid when he played in "Man With the Golden Arm."....but most will remember him as the grumpy Dad in "A Christmas Story"..which is my favorite Christmas movie..But when I developed my huge crush on him was when he played Kolchak:The Night Stalker......I loved that show...it didn't run long enought to suit me..
All these people dying like they are is tough on me..they are my generations 'old hollywood'....All my favorite actors, singers and comedians are going on to the other side...makes me feel sooo old...sometimes that 62 feels like 82.....At least these two lived to a good ripe age....no dying young for them..thank the Goddess...
