I’ll admit it. Before marrying into a family with Cajun lineage, I wasn’t a big gumbo fan. The only time I’d had it a distant relative had made some gumbo and it didn’t strike my fancy.

But then…when I got some REAL CAJUN GUMBO, I saw the light. So for a bit of fun I’ve created this custom Tee for all us Gumbo lovers in the world. For you to like this shirt it probably wouldn’t hurt to also be a LSU Tiger fan. Just sayin. Here’s the shirt. It will be available for a limited time only through Teespring.

If the minimum of 20 shirts aren’t ordered, then no one is charged and the shirt won’t get printed. But if 20 or more are ordered, the credit cards get charged and the shirts (printed in the USA) are shipped within 14 days. Get one. Cause I want one and I can’t get it if enough of you don’t.

ACTORS TALK Podcast – Conversation with Actor Gregory Walcott

June 12, 2012

A top-flight character actor and sometime leading man, Gregory Walcott has managed to bridge the tail-end of the studio system, the heyday of series television, and the boom years of the post-studio 1970s, and carve a notable career in the process. He was born Bernard Mattox in 1928 (some sources say 1932) in Wendell, NC, a small town about 10 miles east of the state capitol of Raleigh. After serving in the Army following the end of the Second World War, he decided to try for an acting career and hitchhiked his way to California.

No one has said that. Yet
