    I hadn't thought about this show for a long time, but I do remember enjoying watching it.

    Rest in peace, Ralph Waite, you provided a lot of entertainment for a lot of people over the years.
    Indeed. I watched the entire series in re-runs as I didn't appreciate it before.

    I didn't watch the Walton's that much but I seem to remember they had to travel some distance to use the Roosevelt Phone at the general store.

    RIP Ralph.
    I remember the episode when social security was brought in and they were happy about that. I'm guessing they'd have been liberal.

    Our family did, too. My (step)mother even adopted their tradition of holding hands during grace and kept it until she died .....even when we had company.

    I actually never watched The Waltons, but knew Ralph Waite's recent work in long-term recurring roles as Booth's grandfather on "Bones", and Gibb's father on "NCIS". He's one of those actors who never stopped working and was always in demand. I'll miss him.

    The Waltons was a great show... one of my favorites. The final "Goodnight" scene of every episode has become part of US culture. Waite was great as the father, but if people remember, there were some great actors in that show, including Waite, Michael Learned, Richard Thomas, Ellen Corby, and Will Geer.
