Fess Parker

Oh! I'm so sad. I just loved Fess Parker. I had such a crush on him as Davy Crockett when I was a kid. He died recently of natural causes. He was 85.




In 2004, I got to visit his winery and eat in his restaurant. I even got to meet him and shake his hand! This was such a thrill for me. I'm so glad I had this opportunity. His place is beautiful, and is located in Los Olivos, CA.

I did not hear he dies either! Peter Graves just died last week also, and I did get to talk to him on the phone once. I just love those guys and gals who were real movie stars. They had such class.

You will not even believe this...

I came to your site from Google Reader to leave a comment. You see, when my son was about two we lived in Tennessee. We would sing the Davy Crockett theme song to him, but substitute his name.

So, I get to you site and what do I hear? The theme song! You made my day!!! You actually brought a tear to my eye because my little boy is now 15!!!

Thanks!
