Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.



Ohmygosh. Every Saturday and Sunday afternoon on Channel 39, I would watch the old westerns. My favorite was the Rifleman, but Bonanza was a close second. I had a cousin who was a manager at a Bonanza steakhouse. Anyone remember those? But, I loved Trapper John, MD, aka, Pernell Roberts. Little Joe was so handsome. And, I had an elementary school principal who called every little boy Hoss. Oh yeah, and there was HopSing. Boy, you could get away with that or even the Ancient Chinese Secret today without people being all up in arms and crying into their rice and soy sauce. I loved these shows. Oh yeah, there was Big Valley and the Lone Ranger. I think Gunsmoke came on at 7 p.m. on Channel 11. My dad used to joke about being Festus.

    You are making me want to move back to my childhood home to watch the Lone Ranger on Channel 50 followed by Abbott and Costello ....Sanford and Son, Hogan's Heroes- all the while drinking Tang.

    Plus Lost in Space,The Munsters, The Adams Family,The Jetsons, The Twilight Zone and Leave it to Beaver- Those were reruns on Channel 20.

    I actually started looking at homes there and could afford one tiny place. Thanks for the memories - your site is this weird trip down memory lane.
