I have no complaints on any level. I'm pretty happy about the way everything has turned out.
Three days a week and I'm home at the ranch in Fallbrook with my avocados.
I love talk and I love fishing. I'm having a ball.
On other shows, guys can't wait to put 3000 miles between them during hiatus.
There is no overt rivalry among our children.
We also have 2 horses, but they're not allowed in the house.

My wife and two children traveled with me on locations all last season.
Actors really should be tramps.
I did radio back in the era when we did radio drama.
I even played Jack Webb's partner on the radio version of Dragnet for a while.
