    I read a very interesting article about him, today. He is 94 and still married to his wife of 70 years. He works everyday, has outlived 2 children, and fights drug abuse among a lot of other things. He has ranches in Australia, is building a solar project of some sort.

    Research him more if you like, but here is summary of his life link:

    The article I read was in the Profile mag. from a local newspaper. Sorry I couldn't find it online. Did anyone else happen to read the article?

    Take care.

    He is just one of many memories I have of my childhood. Don't remember the name of the tv program but I can remember as a child watching him. Mercy that was a long time ago!:smile2:

    Cheryl, the first show I remember Art had was called "People Are Funny"... it ran in the mid 50's to up in the early 60's.

    He was and still is quite a man.

    Hey guys and gals,

    I found the original article I read online. Please check it out. It is a very enlightening article about how much Art Linkletter has accomplished in his long life. A genuine American icon.

    I especially like the poem at the end of the article.

    Take care.
