    Loved it.
    RIP, Mr. Cooper.
    Yes, it was. Cleo was adorable. And I think Patricia Breslin was his co-star.

    I remember both Peoples' Choice and Hennesey, more Hennesey than Peoples Choice. I think Hennesey was the first series I can remember where they kept the male & female leads apart until the final season when they married them off. Abby Dalton was his costar, if I remember right.

    Yes, it was Abby Dalton in Hennessey. I think it might have been the first thing I really remember her from. Her daughter, Kathleen Kinmont was one of Lorenzo Lamas' wives.

    Two more sad announcements today.

    We lost actress Sada Thompson, probably remembered most for tv's Family and for her Tony award winning performance in Twigs.

    Also gone is golfer Seve Ballesteros, a gifted and always entertaining golfer and a true gentleman of the game.

    I remember her most from Family (with a very young Kristy McNichol). I remember her always being so calm no matter what was going on in her tv family.

    I just saw that. Even reading her name takes me back to early TV family times when we all gathered to watch Lawrence Welk and his champagne music. Thank you, Norma, for a happy memory.

    Thanks, Florimel.

    Now I remember Patricia Breslin, too.

    I am so sorry to hear about Sada THompson.
    Family was my favorite show back in the 80's. What a terrific actress she was.
    RIP.

    Harmon Killebrew, the pride of the Minnesota Twins and a first class human being as well as a first class ball player, has passed away at his home in Arizona of cancer. He had announced he was entering hospice care, a cause he had supported for over a decade, last Friday.

    Killebrew hit 573 home runs in his career and is eleventh of the list of all time home run hitters (or fifth on the list of those who hit their homers without the use of steroids). He was also the first Minnesota Twin to make the Hall of Fame.

    I watched him play at the old Met Stadium when I was a kid and met him as an adult. He truly was a gracious, unassuming guy. I heard someone ask him what his most memorable moment in baseball was, and he replied that it was every day that he got to go to a ballpark, put on a major league uniform, and get paid to play a game he'd have played for free.

    Too bad there aren't more around like him today.

    It certainly is. These were the men who played for the love of the game. I'm a lifelong Yankees fan, but I can appreciate and celebrate the talent of a gifted player from any team -- yes, even the Red Sox -- because I love the game itself.
