Bob (Gilligan) Denver Dies

Bob Denver was attending college at Loyola-Marymount University, in Los Angeles, when he got into acting. At first, Denver wasn’t sure he wanted to be an actor, but gradually gave in, deciding that’s what he was going to do for a career. Before he became established, he worked as a mailman and teacher. He then got a screen test for the part of Maynard G. Krebs and to his surprise won the part. After four years on “The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis” (1959), Denver got his most famous part of Gilligan, in “Gilligan’s Island” (1964). After Gilligan’s three-year run ended he did a few other television shows (including the Gilligan wannabe “Dusty’s Trail” (1973)) and Broadway plays. He lives in West Virgina with his wife Dreama, and still does an occasional television role as well as countless fan fests dressed as Gilligan.

Denver died in September 2005.

HAPPY MOUTH — September 2005

Wendy’s pick for this month’s HAPPY MOUTH outing was Vinoklet Winery in Colerain Township on the outskirts of Cincinnati.

This winery cultivates five different grapes which it uses to make 6 different wines. When you arrive at the Winery, you get a tasting of all six wines. You select the wine you want to drink with dinner and then you can grill your own meats and finish your plate with selections from their buffet.

The table is yours for the evening, so you can stroll the vineyard or sit by the firepit and tell tall tales.
