So long, Barney Fife...

Don Knotts
1924 - 2006

Today when I heard Don Knotts had passed away I could only think about how much laughter and joy he gave me over the years. I don't think he was appreciated enough for his talent. Sometimes it comes posthumously. Here's hoping it now comes here in waves.

Don Knotts, the saucer-eyed, scarecrow-thin comic actor best known for his roles as the high-strung small-town deputy Barney Fife on the 1960s CBS series "The Andy Griffith Show" and the leisure-suit-clad landlord Ralph Furley on ABC's '70s sitcom "Three's Company," has died. He was 81. (7-21-24)
