godspeed













By now I'm sure you've all heard the sad news. God bless her. I remember my first knowledge of her as a little child, from "All in the Family"...and then later "Maude", which my father would always insist I turn off because he hated "that goddamn woman."

Thankfully, he fell asleep quickly during Gunsmoke and Bea was soon working her magic on me. She's continuing to work her magic on us all, I think.

Eventually, all of the greats will be gone, and who will replace them?

Was Gunsmoke that boring?

I love that Bea worked magic on a little boy.

Stellar talent; I remember MAUDE. Yes, I'm THAT old. What a loss...

OH YES! Men of a certain generation could not abide her at all.

Miss J adored her.
