Is there anything sweeter than Mark...

...teaching Abby to read and write in The Quiet Fear? It's heart-melting when he winks at Luke and Abby writes "Papa" and gives it to her father.

Mark would make a good teacher. He was really kind and patient with Abby.

Yes, that apple pie he loves so much! https://youtu.be/DfnRxDVCPB8?t=811

Brice Hornsby was also sweet toward Abby, once he got to know her.

:grinning-cowboy: Yes, Mark had a sweet tooth, for sure! His sweet tooth was sweeter than he was at times! :yes: :laughing:

Do you ever wonder how Mark had any teeth at all? He sure did suck down the candy. I'm surprised he only lost one tooth in the whole series. :laughingcowboy:

Yes, I was thinking this very thing when I was typing up my last post! My father loved watching the Rifleman, but he was very strict about our sugar intake. I remember for 6 people, my mother would bake an 8x8 pan of chocolate cake, which was the only dessert we had for the week. Desserts were not a daily part of our meals.

Refresh my memory: In what episode did Mark lose a tooth?

I can't remember the name of the episode, but Luke brought Mark to town with his head tied up in a kerchief. He took Mark over to Doc Burrage because Mark needed a tooth pulled. Something about his "last molar" which I think would have been a wisdom tooth. Sometimes wisdom teeth would get pulled, for what reason I do not know. I know I had my wisdom teeth out because they were crowding my other teeth.

Anyway, Doc looked at Mark's tooth and said he would pull it, and he got down the whisky bottle. Luke gave him a look and he put the bottle back. The camera focused on Luke while the tooth was being pulled, and Chuck did a fine job showing how anxious and squeamish Luke was about seeing Mark's tooth pulled. Mark had been in a lot of pain before but after the tooth came out he felt much better and Luke sent him to school. Isn't it a shame I can remember all that and I can't remember which episode it was? :laughingcowboy:

My parents weren't strict at all about sugar, ironically because there was so much diabetes in the family. My mother constantly baked cookies and cakes and if my son went through half the sugar in a year that we got through in a month, I would have refused to keep sugar in the house at all. I lost my sweet tooth before I was even in my teens because everything was too sweet in our house.

That's absolutely crazy, Judy!
We rarely have cake--only maybe three times every six months??

I will have to do some research. Thanks, Zanza, you gave me enough information, that I think I can find the episode.

My father had good reason to be so strict with our sugar intake. He had a sister who died at the age of 17 from diabetes.

I hope you can find the episode, Judy. Yeah, there was insulin-dependent diabetes on both sides of the family. One of my cousins died at 16 from brittle diabetes, one of my aunts had diabetes whenever she got pregnant, and one of my uncles lost his legs to diabetes. My parents both wound up insulin dependent. I'm very careful to keep my weight down and watch the sugar and I celebrated last year because I got my A1C down enough to get off Metformin.
