  1. Quite a long career and for some reason, I find it heartening that he found his fame in his “golden” years.

      I don’t think he cared all that much about Fame and Fortune, but he got his just reward anyway.

  2. That’s Right! Anne of Green Gables….That’s how I really know him and loved him in that series. He was perfect. Nice tribute!

      I still have a couple of interesting chapters about Richard Farnsworth – though it may seem I’m overdoing things.

        Anne of Green Gables was a very popular series here in Canada. Well done too.
