The Incredible Mr. Knotts

I love this picture of Don Knotts.

Believe it or not, he was ALWAYS successful with women. Which is more than I can say about Sylvester Stallone or Jeff Conaway or....Robert Blake.

Five years on "The Andy Griffith Show," 5 Emmy nomination, 5 wins. A helluva record.

He was RARELY out of work and when he was, he called his friends. The best call was to Andy Griffith when he asked him, "Do you need a deputy?"

Andy Griffith told Larry King that he was bereft when Don left his show for a movie deal at Universal. He said it might sound odd for a man to say about another man, but Andy missed Don every day. They were best friends.

When I was 10, I went to see "The Ghost and Mr. Chicken." I was so scared, I had to go sit in the lobby until the scary organ music stopped.

Miss ya', Barn.

Don Knotts is so cool. For some reason, Three's Company was my favorite show when I was a kid and I loved Mr. Furley. The Andy Griffith show always gave me the creeps so I can't say I watched much of him there.
