    NEW YORK (AP) -- Conrad Bain, a veteran stage and film actor who became a star in middle age as the kindly white adoptive father of two young African-American brothers in the TV sitcom "Diff'rent Strokes," has died.

    Bain died Monday of natural causes in his hometown of Livermore, Calif., according to his daughter, Jennifer Bain. He was 89.

    So strange....at the beginning of the year, one of the TV channels I watch started showing reruns of Diff'rent Strokes a few times a week. I had forgotten how much I love the show and have been making it a point to catch it. Just yesterday I was looking up and reading about all of the actors on the show. RIP, Mr. Drummond!!

    Wow, where does the time go? I honestly thought he was a decade or so younger. I too loved the show.

    Sleep peacefully, Mr. Drummond. :rose:
