Patrick Macnee, RIP -- June 25, 2015,
I was sad to read of the passing of actor Patrick Macnee.  He was a veteran of the Royal Navy in World War II.  I always admired the way he played John Steed in various version of The Avengers.  He played a gentleman who could take care of himself.

Some San Francisco television station played The Avengers on Sunday (?) afternoons.  I also admired his costar, Diana Rigg.  I got confused when Diana Rigg was replaced by Linda Thorson.  Later I learned about Honor Blackman.  I didn't see any black and white episodes till many years later.  When the internet got going, I learned how far back the show went.  Steed was there most of the time.
