"Little Buddy" is gone
It's hard to believe the stars of my favorite childhood shows are dying. Bob Denver was 70.
I imagine he's now sleeping in the bottom hammock again, and occasionally being beaten with a hat by Alan Hale, Jr.
Or more likely, smoking a fat one with Jim Backus. Denver loved the reefer.
Even as a kid, I wondered how they could build all these contraptions but not patch the hole in the boat. Throughout my life, that pragmatic disposition has robbed me of SO much fun!
