Eddie Albert Dies at 99

When you mention the actor Eddie Albert, I can't help but remember 'Green Acres', in which he played a lawyer, with his wife, Eva Gabor. It was played in a rural town, and having come from a country town myself, it just seemed the show to watch during the late 1960's, early 1970's. It may have been a little eccentric at the time, having a pig in the show, but it was funny! Eddie played a city slicker - turned farmer.

Eddie Albert died of pneumonia at home in California, with his son, Edward, at his side. We haven't seen too much of him in the past few years, but he will certainly be missed.
