    It's been five years since there was a post in the Ben Johnson thread, so the bulletin board recommended starting a new thread. Which has now been done.

    Mainly wanted to say hello everyone and that my Ben Johnson Fan Page website was forced to move to a new locale, thanks (or better yet, NO THANKS) to Shutterfly, which decided to discontinue its webhosting service. 12 1/2 years of work on that site disappeared overnight. *sigh*

    Anyway, the new site is Everything was saved from the old site, and I'm now working on re-posting everything, though it probably will be a few months more before it's all back.

    Meanwhile, enjoy these three pictures of Ben taken by photographer Jerry Click (that was really his name!) for The Houston Post. Ben was in Houston promoting his new picture, My Heroes Have Always Been Cowboys.

  • Among his many roles I have a fond remembrance of his part in the somewhat lackluster Bonanza The Return that was on tv in the 90s. Didn't really recapture the allure of the Bonanza series but Johnson was good and gave it some credibility.
