    OK, so not everyone goes for the whole hayseed-in-California routine; but multiple, VERY good authority reports that he is well deserving of his nickname, "Huell the Mule". Anyone have any good screen caps from his shows? I know he is normally pretty conservatively dressed, so it doesn't usually show (but damn - GREAT arms for a 64-year-old!!). A former roommate who was a personal friend of his did say he was known to whip it out at parties to shut people up...

    They should change the show name to California Golden Cock. I too think he is one handsome red neck.

    A straight friend of mine who worked with Huell at KCET in Los Angeles said that it is common knowledge around PBS that Huell likes young guys, & I have seen him here in LA with the same young guy several times at brunch at the El Cid.

    Saw this morning that Huell had passed away. So sad. And so young! I remember seeing him one day in the area where Santa Monica and Venice Beach kinda meet. He was trying to explain to this guy why planting bamboo in his backyard to get more privacy would be a bad idea. That stuff takes over your lawn and spreads like crazy. And if you cut it down it leaves these razor sharp spikes. He was a sweet guy. Country as all get out, but nice.

    yeah, everybody here in California is sad about Huell's passing. He was an icon here. oh, and I had a huge crush on him just out of high school. He was pretty big & hot about 20 years ago.

    The sadness extends beyond California. His kind, gentle and warm personality was a welcome respite from the normal bullshit on television. I always enjoyed watching his show when I was visiting the Golden State.

    I m new in this country and only heard about him when i saw in the news he was retiring. that was last month i think. i thought what a good looking man. and of course with my gaydar i was wishing he would swing. i was right. i ve read lot of good things about him. how he was low key, simple.I even added him on my twitter hoping he could notice me. oh well,...gone too soon

    Shame to hear his passing. Always thought he was a hottie. Any good gossip or stories about him?
