Fargo, North Dakota

As you recall I went to Fargo just to see the woodchipper from the movie FargoIf you missed that post click here.  Outside the tourist center was their "Walk of Fame", much like the sidewalk outside Grauman's Chinese Theatre in Hollywood. 

I began walking around the large circle of cement squares, reading the names and thinking who are these people? (in the case of recent pop stars) or big deal (in the case of...well...big deal).  I was about to quit when all of a sudden I came upon this one. 
Cool!  Now were talking and I kept walking.

I so enjoyed watching his "People are Funny" shows.

As an adult I even more enjoyed "The Steve Allen Show".  We even went to see one show live.

And then there was this guy.  What can't be said about Tiny Tim? 
Well for starters, he forgot how to spell his first name.

And for all you grown-up Sesame Street kids

oh yes I remember Art Linkletter shows and his chats with the little ones. Also Tiny Tim (never impressed me any) .. but I did use to enjoy The Honeymooners way back then, and Art Carney especially, and his references to the yellow-belly-sapsucker, which I only found out recently on someone's blog that it IS actually a bird, not just a fictitious one. Enjoyed your post John.

Very interesting - I didn't know there was a place like this...and especially in Fargo! I guess I think it is always cold and snowing there (because of the movie)...nice that someone has spent the money to remember people this way!

so i guess it is just visitors to the area and not necessarily folks who were from the area. :)

You're seeing some great parts of the country on this road trip, and I'm enjoying your posts! I'm a JT fan, so very cool. Never did get Tiny Tim. Did you see the wood chipper?

I bet you had the best time looking at all of the names on the squares. Like that my boy Tiny Tim had his square there. genie
