  1. I love, love , love Jerry Mathers ( Beaver )
    and Tony Dow ( Wally ) and so many other talented Actors.
    I wished one of them would have compassion enough on me to make it possible to fix my small delapidated house in East Tennessee. .. I cringe every time it rains. : (

  2. Really? These guys are not rich and you have no shame pandering for a donation to fix up your ‘delapidated’ (sic) house. Ask fellow Tennessean Al Gore, he’s loaded and pretends to have great compassion for the downtrodden. Or better yet, get a job and pay for it yourself; you’ll have more self respect.

  3. Greg Bradford you tube: crime family duplicity fraud.
    Jerry mathers is the host actor for Tom cruise, Christian bale, tucker Carlson, etc
