she was the lady who took over playing the piano. The episode where Grandma was going to quit being a baptist, if Reverend Fordwick let Zelda play. The part I liked was when John said it was good to have another back slider home on Sunday morning and Grandma went off to church
Oh yes, now I remember!! It was cute when John talked like that just to get Grandma to go to church! Funny too, how she claimed to be such a staunch Christian, yet frequently had unchristian thoughts and words.
Yesterday I watched the episode where Uncle Cody came to visit and the conduct of Livy and Esther was most unbecoming when it came to Cody's lady friend. They were very judgemental. I was so happy to see Livy's character lighten up as the series went on. I don't think I could have gotten much enjoyment out of her if she had continued on like that...so cold and critical of others.
The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever. Isaiah 40:8
James Gammon 1940-2010 He played Zach Rosswell a classmate/neighbor of John's. He was in 8 episodes. Adrienne Marden (1909–1978) She played Mrs. Mary Breckenridge. George Tobias (1901–1980) played Junk Man Vernon Rutley and Mr. Kravitz on Bewitched. Eduard Franz (1902–1983) played Uncle Cody and Colonel Seth Linville.
River A high station in life is earned by the gallantry with which appalling experiences are survived.
I am sure they both cringed when Uncle Cody married and the passage was read--- "Quisquis Deus conjuxit, nemo deponent!"
For those who never studied the world's greatest language it is--- "Whatever God has joined together, let no man put assunder"
I studied Latin for five years..... and, FYI, doubt if the Waltons ever heard that -- they were not Roman Catholic! Or, was Latin used for some reason in that episode.....?? I don't remember that......
