"Who Is Your Favorite Actor on TV?" :)

Hello Everyone!

Almost exactly 57 years ago, a grandmother vacationing in California mailed (for only three cents!) a postcard to her grandson in Indiana. I suppose lots of grandmas sent postcards in 1961, but most of the cards probably didn't have these two handsome gents on the front:

Yep, it's the "Mavericks"! And, apparently either Jack Kelly or James Garner was the recipient's favorite star, because his "Grandmom" wrote on the back:

"Who is your favorite actor on TV? Lois and I are in Hollywood seeing the sights."

Out of curiosity, I Googled the name of the addressee. Unfortunately, what I found was his obituary. However, he lived a very full and interesting life. At one point the Mavericks were a part of that life, if only via TV and a rectangular memento of a grandmother's long-ago sightseeing trip. And, now that memento is part of the Kellection.

Please stay tuned to keep seeing the sights with JK and TDS! :)
