Thanks for Making Me Smile

Growing up, rainy Saturdays were kept inside, curled up under a blanket on the couch. While it was gray and gloomy outside, my spirit was brightened by the antics of actor Don Knotts. Two of my favorite movies of all times starred him, "The Incredible Mr. Limpet" and "The Ghost and Mr. Chicken."

I know, these aren't Oscar-winning flicks and a bit on the cheezy side but there was just something in Knotts' genuineness, innocence and his expressive face that hooked me as a fan. Of course, he's best known for the "Andy Griffith Show" and "Three's Company" sit-coms, but I will always remember him as Mr. Limpet.
