Favorite Birthday Boy and Blast From the Past for May 18th Tom Byrd

Ok, some of you might be saying who is Tom (Thomas) Byrd, but...if you were a tv watching kid in the 80's as I was, you would know who Tom was. Maybe best known for his role on the shortlived 'Boone' I first was introduced to Tom when he did a couple of guest shots on 'The Facts Of Life' Tom played a mentally challenged guy who had a crush on Blair. Tom was so adorable and an early crush. This hunky actor was all over tv in the 80's and 90's from Laverne and Shirley, Alice, Family Ties, St. Elsewhere, Newhart and more! He also had some movie roles in ' Young Guns 2' and 'Twilight Zone the movie'. Tom's last acting role appears to be about 10 years ago on 'Frasier'. Tom also spent some time on tv and movies as a stuntman and animal wrangler. Wonder what this guy is up to these days? Tom is an example of a guy who never really that big role to make him a star, yet made an impression on this writer for many years. Thanks Tom and Happy 49th!

That's not small at all. You obviously don't know anything about white men. White boys are growers. That's an easy 8. And yes he is hot. Forget Blair. I'll snort it off ur wiener and give you a night you'll never forget. I just hope you are a top!
