Like Most of America I really liked Jim Nabors.  He passed away  this week at the age of 87. His  Gomer Pyle was one of those great TV characters that always made you feel something.  Often laughter, sometimes sadness or empathy, but always something.  No country bumpkin in real life,  Nabors was a well rounded entertainer. He had a great run.  TV, music, nightclubs,  movies and lived quietly without making headlines.   Gomer Pyle USMC ran for five seasons and was one of  the shows I remember starting in Black & White and ending in Color by the end of it’s run.   Plain at first, but it grew deeper and more colorful the more you watched it.  Kind of like Jim Nabors…
