Goodbye to Mr. Drummond
I was saddened to hear of the passing of actor Conrad Bain, who played the dad, Mr. Drummond, on Diff'rent Strokes from 1978-1986. Diff'rent Strokes was one of my all-time favorite TV shows of the early 80s. He was a great father figure character, and I learned from him the same lessons he taught Arnold and Willis. That show touched me because I didn't have a father in my house growing up, so I really respected and admired Mr Drummond. That is such a great show! If I only had one show to take with me on a desert island, I probably would pick this one!
