In Memory of Don Knotts

I was sorry to hear of the passing of Don Knotts. He was a great side kick actor, making his most memorable character as Barney Fife, Mayberry’s deputy who carried his lone bullet in his pocket. He played many other roles; Mr. Limpet, The Ghost and Mr. Chicken and possibly his shortest role in No Time For Sergeants.

I watched No Time For Sergeants tonight; looking forward to the administration of the coordination test scene. “But he did it all wrong.”, his high pitched voice reacting to the newly bent and destroyed testing materials, that familiar bungler that matched him up with Andy Griffith for the rest of his career.
