Rest in peace, Leslie Nielsen


It was announced today that Leslie Nielsen has passed away. He was 84, and died of complications from pneumonia. I won’t launch into a description of his career (You can find that here), but I will say that he was one of my favorite actors, and as well as being a favorite of my kids. I sure wish I could hold such a dead pan face while delivering humorous lines like he could.

Rest in peace Mr. Nielsen…your work will be missed.

I am a 47 years young and the mother of two amazing young men, who've grown up and left me mostly an Empty-Nester. I write about what's going on in my little corner of the High Plains, or what happens to be crawling across my brain on a given day. Thank you so much for stopping by. Make yourself at home...through the magic of the internet, the coffee's always free and the doughnuts are fresh!

    That was sad. And to think, he was strictly a dramatic actor well into his 50’s and then that appearance on Airplane! launched him as a comic actor for the next 30 years. He will be missed.

  2. I was soo bummed on this news…. All day the line from Airplane that went somethng like this, “So Johnny have you ever spent time in a Turkish prison?”…. he will so be missed!
