Walter Brennan

A splendid actor was the late Walter Brennan. There were so many movies and television shows he was in. One of his characters I would particularly enjoy: That was when he played grandpa Amos McCoy.

Robert, The memories you've conjured, not quite by accident. A providence found in your poem called Walter Brennan. 'He used to plow them rows straight and deep And I'd come along near behind A-bustin' up clods with my own bare feet Old Rivers was a friend of mine.' ~~ 'He'd say, one of these days I'm gonna climb that mountain Walk up there amoung the clouds Where the cotton's high And the corn's a-growin' And there ain't no fields to plow.' - Old Rivers - Walter Brennan

He might have been a great actor, but he was a dreadful singer! Good tribute, Robert.

Now you’re talking Robert, he was a great character actor...no one better. John
