Left Side of the Aisle #96 - Part 4

RIP: Richard Briers

A brief RIP. I expect you don't know who the person in the photo is, but that's okay: He was much better known in the UK than here. His name is Richard Briers; he was a British actor. He died of emphysema on February 17 at the age of 79.

Although a few people around here might know him for having played the Chief Caretaker in "Paradise Towers," a Sylvester McCoy Doctor Who story, I remember him best as Tom Good in the British sitcom "The Good Life," which was shown in the US under the title "The Good Neighbors."

It is my all-time favorite sitcom. All-time. It revolved around a couple trying to live a self-sufficient lifestyle in an upscale suburb of London. My first wife, Linda, and I used to dream of being the Goods.

RIP Richard, and thanks for the dreams.
