    Wilford Brimley, R.I.P.

    Wilford Brimley has reportedly passed away, age 85.
    He seemingly gave a new meaning to the term "ageless" as he looked old when he was decades younger. He played an aging retiree in Cocoon" when he was only age 50. He was in countless films and commercials. Perhaps my favorite role of his was when he summed up everything at the conclusion of the Paul Newman-Sally Field film "Absence of Malice." R.I.P.
    "Hey...Dad. Wanna Have A Catch?" Kevin Costner in "Field Of Dreams."

    Gotta ask...

    Was it "diabeetus"?
    He said he was curious about the crowd but didn’t want to stay and talk. “I’m heading out,” he said. “This is a super-spreader event.”

    You know Red, I should have been a farmer.

    RIP Wilfred. He had playing the old cranky guy with a good heart down pat.
    “He smote Cutshaw athwart the floating ribs with an inshoot.”

    No, he called Liberty Medical. They'll help you live a better life.
    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.
