Some of us baby-boomer 1960s TV Western fans will remember Robert Horton, who played scout Flint McCullough on Wagon Train. He passed away earlier this month, aged 91, after a long illness.

Peter Brown, who played the handsome young deputy on Lawman, and one of the Texas Rangers on Laredo, also passed on a short time ago, aged 80, of complications from Parkinson's Disease.

It doesn't seem so long ago that we were watching them every week on television. Time is going by too fast. Gather ye rosebuds while ye may.
