    I heard that when my alarm went off this morning. I commented to my husband that it's hard to believe the Jefferson's was on TV that long ago. The cast seems to be getting up there in age.

    I liked that show, and his character was funny.

    Sad, I liked his character also....

    1977? Holy COW, I feel old. It is depressing when I see re-runs of shows from the day and see how old and dated they feel. Good times, Welcome back Cotter, Dukes of Hazzard!

    I think I'll go have a bonescan done!

    Oh, Sad to hear! I loved his character.
    The lady who played his wife died some years ago. She is the mother of singer Lenny Kravitz.
