RIP Barnard Hughes

aka "Grandpa" from The Lost Boys. Dead at 90. Thanks to the great Lileks for this info.

Have some double-thick Oreos and a root beer for Grandpa tonight. Better yet, leave 'em alone. Nobody touches the second shelf but Grandpa.

My Mom(Now deceased) said that Barnard Hughes was a favorite:

I saw him in "Da", a story of a deceased Irish father, who, humorously talked with his son.
I always think of the early 80s tv show "Mr Merlin" when I see Barnard Hughes.

Yes, I'm old. :-)

RIP, Mr Merlin!
"...all the damn vampires."

RIP, Mr.-Hughes-type-old-dude. I love that movie, and you'll always be "Grandpa" to me.
