I loved Davy Crockett as a

I loved Davy Crockett as a boy. I'm amazed the LA Times fogort he played Daniel Boone for so long on TV. I mean, isn't the film industry sort of important to LA and all that?I'm not surprised Fess was a conservative but I hadn't heard that. Somebody recently corrected me about Clint Eastwood who is really more of a Rockefeller Republican. I have a hard time believing that anyone who could be convincing as Davy Crockett or Daniel Boone could mouth the idiocy that comes out of the mouths of today's conservative. I think I'll seek out a bottle of Fess's Chardonnay this weekend and drink to Chardonnay drinking Fess Parker this weekend.

LOVED this man ... So many

Although my dad was the original one who grew up hummin' this catchy song of promise, I also am proud to admit to lovin' this legend too. Fess, as both Davy Crocket and Daniel Boone, always inspired me, a proud "daddy's lil' girl, to go off explorin' the great outdoors and I still love to. Thank you Fess for making me a Queen..."of the wild frontier" (not some powder puff chick!). You made a legend real and it always will live on no matter what generation. God bless you and your family Fess. Thank you.
